Slip, slidin' away ...

Kaia Robbins of Princeton has a fun-filled day on her saucer sled during the weekend. On Saturday, with temperatures in the mid- to high-40s, area residents got a break from brutal temperatures, and heavy winter coats were the exception, rather than the norm. But in 24 hours, those temperatures took a nose-dive and greeted county residents early Sunday morning with a freezing mist followed by low temperatures with a below-zero wind chill factor.
