    Deadly polar vortex blasts Midwest with coldest air in decades - live updates

    The combination of snow and below-average temperatures is making everyday tasks almost unbearable, CBS News correspondent DeMarco Morgan reports from Minneapolis. In Fargo, North Dakota, emergency responders braved temperatures hovering around 20 below zero to assist victims in a car crash.
    In Grand Rapids, Michigan, whiteout conditions are being blamed for a chain reaction of crashes involving at least two dozen vehicles. No was one was killed.

    The arctic blast also put a stop to public transportation. Amtrak canceled all of its trains at Chicago's Union Station due to the extreme cold.

    USPS to suspend service in some states


    The United States Postal Service said Tuesday it will not deliver mail to areas some parts of the country on Wednesday due to the extreme cold brought on by the polar vortex.

    Service will be suspended Wednesday in parts of Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois (including parts of Chicago), Wisconsin, Ohio, Iowa, western Pennsylvania, the Dakotas and Nebraska, the USPS said.

    In addition to deliveries, pickups from businesses, residences and collection boxes are also suspended.

    Seriously you people who live in the areas that are in the vortex please be careful. The temperature is deadly. With the wind chill is below -50 in some areas. Schools have been canceled in some areas. When the post office closes you know its cold. 60,000 people are without power I worry for them. It's hard to heat your home without electricity. Stay smart and safe. It's colder than Nancy Pelosi's heart. Meanwhile Dallas expects a high of 52 today.

    Not trying to pick a fight with anyone but I am curious how people who believe in awg explain this. If man is warming the planet and responsible for record highs how are we experiencing record lows too?

    Experiencing more extreme climates. Hotter summers, colder winters etc

    Yeah more extremes are supposed to be part of the global warming thing. Hotter summers and colder winters. And more droughts and flooding. I believe in climate change I still think the exact cause is debatable at this point.

    By similar logic, if the stock market is up, then every day must be up, you can't have a day where any value is lost if the stock market is up.

    Sorry, but that is an utterly ridiculous argument you are making. We are experiencing record lows, not all time record lows, just record lows for the date, over what amounts to less than 3% of the world's surface. At the same time, the highs out west are above normal. Its a trough in the jet stream, just deeper than normal.

    Here in KC, it's -5 out right now with a -20 windchill. Not that unusually cold for us as we have a few days like this most winters. Tomorrow it will be 40 for a high, on Sunday 61, probably a record high for the date as normally we are in the upper teens at night right now and in the 30s during the day.

    But if its trending on an upward trajectory we should not be setting new lows. I can understand temperature dips but shouldn't the dips be less extreme as we tend upward?
