According the Farmers Almanac...January (2013) is supposed to be .5 degrees above average. That must mean the final day in January is going to be above 187 degrees to even it all out. I can hardly wait!

BAD weather advisories from the National Weather Service or Accu Weather are always issued in CAPS.

Always have - always will be. It's SOP.

Sandusky and Huron schools closed about 40 minutes ago. Not sure about Perkins or anyone else.
