"A 'polar vortex' thrust the eastern two-thirds of the United States into historically frigid conditions," reports a United Press International story that's being distributed nationally this morning.  It details the cancellations and other problems the blast of snow, wind and sub-zero temperatures have created, noting, "Universities that rarely close for winter weather -- including Northwestern in Chicago and suburban Evanston, Michigan State in East Lansing, Ohio State in Columbus and DePauw in Greencastle, Ind. -- were also shut down."

The piece continues, " 'This is shaping up to be one of the worst winter storms in Indiana history,' DePauw public safety director Angie Nally said on the university website. Southern universities, including the University of Texas LGL & CH 2 14 12 snow 13at Arlington near Dallas, also closed because of the weather, which produced ice overnight."
