It was cold Wednesday. And it felt colder than the thermometer read.

It’s not going to be much better today. We’ll see a high of about 27-28 degrees – but it will only feel like 17 degrees. Overcast skies will clear up in the early afternoon. Expect a low of 21.

The sun will rise at 8:03 a.m. and set at 5:23 p.m.

Here’s the agenda for Thursday:

  • The Washtenaw County Conservation District has its annual meeting at the Farm Council Grounds at 6 p.m.

In sports:

  • The bowling teams visit Tecumseh.
  • The competitive cheer team visits Monroe.
  • The boys swim and dive team is home to Pioneer.

Jan. 10 is Houseplant Appreciation Day. Each year on January 10, gardeners and home enthusiasts are urged to celebrate the humble houseplant. Houseplants not only add beauty to a home and offer endless hobby hours, they also filter the air. This can reduce indoor pollutants and contribute to a happier and healthier interior environment.

On this day in history, in 49 BC Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon, signaling the start of the Civil War. Thomas Paine published “Common Sense” in 1776, advocating American Independence. In 1946, the UN General Assembly met for the first time.
