We're in for it
All these temperatures in the 40s have not prepared us for what's hitting us today: A high of 22 degrees and a low of 4, with a 20 percent chance of snow during the day. The day will be cloudy with a little bit of sunshine here and there, but it won't help warm things up much. Wednesday will stay cold, with a high of only 25.
Commission to meet
The Lawrence City Commission will meet this morning, and the commission will cover only consent agenda items only, meaning these are items that can be voted on together without discussion or comment. The meeting is at 9 a.m. at City Hall, 6 E. Sixth St.
Sing out loud
Do the holidays leave you wanting to sing your heart out? Dust off your pipes for Tuesday Karaoke Night at Wayne & Larry's Sports Bar & Grill, in the Hillcrest Shopping Center at Ninth and Iowa streets. Karaoke starts at 9 p.m. and there are drink specials throughout the evening to give you the liquid courage you need to stand up in front of a room and sing!
