Bitter cold - Alexander County fire - Unemployment benefits

Good morning!

It's another bitterly cold day out, so be sure to bundle up and limit your outdoor time.

Holly Brantley and I will be out and about this morning with tips on how to stay warm and how the cold weather has impacted local hospitals and roads.

A log cabin in Alexander County near Olive Branch was destroyed by fire Monday night. We'll have the latest at 5.

The cold is proving to be too much for almost everyone...even an escaped prisoner in Kentucky!

The Senate is back in action Tuesday with a vote that may or may not extend unemployment benefits for millions of Americans.
