    1. Winter weather continues through the beginning of the week

    The National Weather Service's winter weather advisory will last until 7 a.m. Monday, Jan. 27, but that doesn't mean we're done dealing with near-arctic conditions. Starting at 7 a.m. Monday, the area will be under a wind chill warning that will last until 11 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29. 

    Snow is possible on Monday, and the area could see a wind chill as low as -35 degrees that night. 

    The wintry weather has prompted a number of businesses, churches and schools in the area to announce cancellations and delays. 

    2. Indiana House of Representatives will vote on the state's controversial same-sex marriage amendment Monday

    On Monday, Jan. 26, the Indiana House of Representatives will vote on HJR-3, the controversial amendment that would reinforce the illegality of same-sex marriage in the state and ban the creation of anything similar to it. 

    If the proposed amendment passes in the House, voters will see it on their ballots in November.

    The Elkhart Truth published an editorial arguing the legislation's passing would hurt Indiana and distracts from more important issues the state is facing. 

    3. Mobile food pantry coming to Elkhart County area in February

    The Food Bank of Northern Indiana's mobile pantry will be rolling into town next month and will provide locals in need with fresh and nonperishable food free of charge.

    The pantry will operate on a first come, first served basis. Patrons must show a valid photo ID and should bring bags or boxes to carry their items in.

    4. 'Snow baby' of Wakarusa delivered with the help of a snowmobile and a bag of sugar

    Angela Carol King's wasn't born at the most convenient time, but the story of her delivery is one heck of a tale. The day after the blizzard of 1978, a legendary storm among locals, her parents' home was buried in snow – however, that didn't stop King's mother from going into labor.

    With the help of a dedicated doctor, a snowmobile and a bag of sugar, King was safely delivered and earned a lifelong nickname – "the snow baby."
