Fire and ice


This morning’s cold conditions led to frost formations in the trees around the area and ground fog which painted the landscape and horizons a slate-blue color.

Olympic memories


Indian Lake Elementary kindergarten mothers Jamie Ross, left, and Colleen Bodin spent time Friday sharing with Jodi Carder’s class about their Olympic Torch Relay experiences, as they both were torchbearers for the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics. The opening ceremony for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics also was broadcast on Friday. On Jan. 3, 2002, Mrs. Ross carried the torch in Lima, while Mrs. Bodin carried it through downtown Dayton. They shared with the kindergartners various details about carrying the torch and showed students their torchbearer outfits and the route the torch was carried. Each student also had the chance to hold the torches. Mrs. Bodin, a guidance counselor at Indian Lake High School, shared her experience with students at the high school earlier in the week.

Snow roller



The meteorological phenomenon known as snow rollers have appeared in Logan County. The Examiner has received a number of calls from readers who have noticed them and the Examiner’s Joel Mast spotted these this morning along Ludlow Road south of Bellefontaine. Snowballs are formed when the ground is covered by a layer of ice to which snow will not stick and the wind must be strong enough to move the wet, loose snow that’s on top of the ice — but not strong enough to blow them apart. Frigid temperatures are to continue through Tuesday with perhaps another inch of snow expected. (EXAMINER PHOTO | JOEL E. MAST)
