Other locations and where they fell:
Daniel Field also fell to 12°. Barnwell County Airport had a minimum of 14°f, as did Blackville and Orangeburg -- all three of these readings are due to continued wind which died down after sunup -- and the temperature is a record for Orangeburg (KOGB).

Terrible turn of events for one of the two gang rape victims in Maryville, Mo. Daisy Coleman, 16, attempted suicide. This is why we need to confront rape culture and the enablers of such a culture. [Jessica Wakeman]

No softball conditioning this week, due to extreme cold. Remind your daughters who play the sport about this. I know this is from Silver Bluff, but I think all of the schools locally have shut down plans to hold softball conditioning. [Twitter]
