Experts warn that the increased cold could freeze much of the current snowfall, making cleanup much more difficult than anticipated. Schools, businesses and offices are still closed today High -6°C and a low of -16°C (21deg;F/3°F)

March 21 - April 19
Yes, you’ve been in one place too long. Yes, you need a change of pace and scenery. However, in your haste you could go off in a direction that is wrong for you, and it will be embarrassing to having to come back again. It may feel as if everyone wants something from you this week, and you’ll rise to the occasion. You’ll be quite amazing in your ability to address more than one need at a time. You’ll deliver lighthearted fun. It will be good for relationships of all kinds, including professional ones. Your quick wit and active lifestyle will be a magnet for new friends.
April 20 - May 20
You enjoy making people feel comfortable. You could use your charm to climb new ranks, though more likely you’ll dedicate yourself to simply making others happy. Whatever happens after that is icing on the cake. You’ll feel youthful and unburdened by responsibilities this week. Feeling this way make it true, to some extent. As if by magic, your schedule will clear itself of worry. You could easily spend too much or in some other way damage your reputation for prudence this week. Just because others are throwing around wads of cash does not mean you are obligated to do likewise.
May 21 - June 20
You’ll have more company than expected this week, but that’s okay because you get such a positive charge from spending time with friends. You’ll notice a loved one’s happy, dancing eyes and wonder what secrets lie behind them. Could it be that the energy you give to your goals has greater purpose than the actual steps taken to make them happen? You’ll get evidence to suggest that today. According to the planets you may go over the top and annoy someone you really ought to stay on good terms with. Think before you speak or push “send”, and remember that words in the digital age are not so easily erased.
June 21 - July 22
Life may suddenly seem less complicated. You can feel that you have the potential for a good life ahead of you, and you sense that success is really just a matter of continuing to choose what is best for you. You’ll be spending time in the coming week within a complimentary person. They will confirm your attractiveness (not that you needed the ego boost), although it may not be your looks that are pointed out. A job worth doing is worth getting paid the going rate for, and as you do it better than most, you are entitled to a little extra. Don’t sell yourself too cheaply.
July 23 - August 22
There will be people on either side of an issue trying to get you to side with them. How do you know whether you’re doing the right thing? It feels right. Trust your instincts. Creative activities will go well in the next week, but they will go even better if you don’t try to do everything yourself. Get help with the bits you find boring, and save the good stuff for yourself. You know better than to pin your hopes on acquiring certain objects. You’d rather have the feeling that comes with knowing that you love and are loved. You’ll do whatever it takes to kindle that feeling now.
August 23 - September 22
The only way to see the big picture it to go to the top of the proverbial mountain. You can do this in your mind, or you can do it by physically heading to the highest point in your geography (The top of AGI's Tower, if you're interested!) It's always a mistake to compare yourself to other people, and it would be even more of a mistake now, with the planets occupying such a good position in your chart. Showcase your talents (of which you have plenty). You'll have the strong sense that you are in control of your own destiny. This is what liberty feels like. When you exercise your free and independent will, joy rings through you like a bell.
September 23 - October 23
Ideas will come thick and fast this week, but you won't achieve much if you try and follow up on every one of them. Decide upon the one thing you are more passionate about and focus on that exclusively. You'll do everything within your abilities to make life the way you want it to be. There are others involved who won't mind doing things your way. In fact, they'll enoy being a part of your vision. Accepting reality is the first step to co-creating it. Your will is strong, but the universal will is stronger. You'll defer to it and work alongside it as you realize that any other move would be pointless.
October 24 - November 21
There is something you have overlooked and you desperately need to find out what that is and take the appropriate action. The consequences could be worse than just looking foolish- you could lose serious money. Don't be prone to silly mistakes. Try to slow down and think things through. Luckily your reflexes are quick, so even if you blunder, you can probably recover if you catch yourself now. You'll find simple ways to bring joy to others this week, using the talents you were born with. It's a win/win, and you'll delight in applying yourself in such a way that everyone you reach out to will really appreciate it.
November 22 - December 21
You may feel there is nothing you cannot do that nothing is too much for you, and you may be right, but you do in fact have limits like everyone else. Remind yourself what these limits are. if you don't get what you want right away, it may be for the best. Sometimes what doesn't happen may keep something catastrophic from occurring. Waste not a moment of apprehension. There's no use wondering if something will turn out or not. There is no better place or time than now for the things you need to get accomplished.
December 22 - January 19
Scientists have yet to figure out exactly why flowers make people smile. But they do. You'll use flowers and other methods to put a smile on the faces of those around you. Your sense of fun and adventure is going strong. You have responsibilities, but you don't let them define who you are- because that would make you so boring! You may be on the verge of ending a project that does not seem to be going anywhere special, but that would be a mistake. The planets indicate there is some mileage in it yet, so don't give up so easily!
January 20 - February 18
You'll be decisive this week, choosing as though you know you can't get it wrong. In fact, you probably can't, because whatever you pick, you can always pick something different next. What looks like a disaster to you may look like a triumph to other people, so don't jump to conclusions and try to change things without consulting friends and coworkers. It could be you are being too negative. The world will require your patience. So few people really are patient these days, and yet so many rely on the patience of others. Without it, life would run them over.
February 19 - March 20
You believe that being alive is enough of a reason to celebrate. So when special occasions come up, you think either "what's the big deal" or "this is the biggest deal ever!" Which one is it this time? If you get the chance to move up in the world, you must take it. Too often in the past you have turned down opportunities and sold yourself short because you lacked ambition and self-belief. You can't afford than now. New resources will inspire you to put more effort into raising your attractiveness quotient, both on the inside and the outside.

- SERO released a press statement this morning with regards to a "cyborg incident" at the Underground Mall and across other parts of the city isolated by the storm, with total damages still yet to be calculated. In the statement, SERO expresses condolences for those affected by the tragedy, but emphasize that none of the machines involved were tampered with by SERO in any capacity. "No SERO employee or affiliate was involved with the mass malfunction of these privately owned machines, and police have found no connection to suggest otherwise. According to our pre-inspection and warranty, ownership implies an obligation for all further matters of hardware and software maintenance upon purchase. We at SERO are dedicated to bringing you a vision of the future, today-- in the safest possible manner." Police reports have not been released to the public; one popular AGI columnist suggests something far more sinister in the works from these lethal technology developments.
- A stolen car with shredded tires was discovered in the early evening last night, its front end buried in a curbside mountain of plowed snow in Sector 6. Abandoned with shredded tires, the license plate matched to the vehicle involved in a slippery chase earlier in the day, resulting in the totaling of 4 SPPD 4-wheel drive squad vans, skidding across the ice and also killing several pedestrians who had ventured out into the cold to attempt in vain to keep their walkways cleared. Police cameras only caught grainy images in the low visibility, but clear indication of the Joker’s trademark grin leave the notorious newcomer a #1 suspect.
