Fiscal Compromised Reached

Congress' approval of a compromise averting a prolonged tumble off the fiscal cliff hands a victorious President Barack Obama most of the tax boosts on the rich that he campaigned on. It also prevents House Republicans from facing blame for blocking tax cuts for most American households, though most GOP lawmakers parted ways with Speaker John Boehner and opposed the measure.

Clear, but Icy Cold

Brighter skies today with mainly dry weather through the weekend.  Highs will stay on the cool side..only up to near freezing for the rest of the week.  Lows will sink into the teens and lower 20s.  Temps will sneak up to near 40 over the weekend.
