Apropos movie title


Frozen is the word for today for sure with the high temperature expected to be -8. Overnight temperatures are expected to hit -14. No schools were in session today and some businesses were shuttered also as blustery winds are expected to continue throughout the day and into Tuesday, with a high of 7 expected. Frozen — the Disney movie — can be seen at 7:30 p.m. daily at Chakeres Cinema, 888 E. Sandusky. It is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen and features a kingdom cast into eternal winter by a Snow Queen and the efforts of a mountain man and a reindeer who team up with a princess to break the icy spell. If only it were that easy. Wednesday’s high is to be near 25; a relative heat wave. (EXAMINER PHOTO | T.J. HUBBARD)

That does not compute
