Refuges brace for frigid weather

Refuges are expecting an influx of homeless people as the polar vortex descends – fitfully – on the city.

Even in a town like this, where we’re accustomed to temperatures bouncing around, it’s unusual to have two frigid days – Friday and Saturday – Friday with a high of –24° and Saturday –18° – bookended by days with highs of –2° or –3°.

We also have a smog warning up for Wednesday.
