-- It's a cold case perplexing law enforcement departments across the country - who's to blame for the snow and sub-zero temperatures this winter?
In connection with the mounds of snow and frozen tundra that the United States has become, police have issued arrest warrants for three suspects: Jack Frost, also known as Old Man Winter; Queen Elsa of Arendelle, also known as the Snow Queen from Disney's "Frozen"; and, Punxsutawney Phil, also known as - well, the groundhog that sees (or doesn't see) his shadow in early February every year.
In Eaton, Ohio, police have accused Jack Frost of "dumping snow and ice on roadways and sidewalks, leaving a wake of cold air, causing excessive snow shoveling, missed school days, and frost nipped noses." Police also warned that he may be traveling with Frosty the Snowman.
The low temperature there was forecast at -8 degrees today.
Further south, in Harlan, Kentucky, police searched for Elsa, describing her as a "blonde female last seen wearing a long blue dress and is known to burst into song "Let it Go!" Today's low in Harlan was -11 degrees.
