'Crippling' Ice Storm Underway Across South

The ice storm underway in the South is going to be one of the most damaging such storms in decades, if current projections are realized. The storm, which is gathering strength along the Gulf Coast, is pushing warm, moist air up and over a cold dome of high pressure that is keeping temperatures below freezing at the surface from Maine to Alabama.

Ice more than an inch thick is expected to coat much of central and eastern Georgia into central South Carolina. This may not sound like much, but considering that tree branches will break at just a quarter to a half-inch of ice accumulation, this event is bringing so much ice that entire trees and power poles are likely to come crashing down in the hardest hit areas.

Top Moments From Sochi: Shaun White Founders While Women Soar

Long-time NBC Olympic host Bob Costas might be on the bench, but athletes at the 2014 Sochi Olympics are still raring and ready to go.

Olympians fought for the gold in a number of sports Tuesday, including women's ski jumping, which finally made its inaugural Olympic appearance, figure skating, men's snowboarding and biathlon.

German Carina Vogt, who won the gold medal in women's ski jumping, told the Associate Press: "I cannot find the right words ... It’s amazing. I’m the first woman Olympic champion in ski jumping.”

Notable moments included an unexpected snowboarding upset when dominant American Shaun White failed to medal on the halfpipe due to a disastrous first run, Norway's tight gold medal finish in men's cross country and a fight to the top in pairs figure skating that resulted in a Russian win.

AT&T Is First Olympic Brand to Condemn Russia's Anti-Gay Laws

AT&T has become the first major U.S. company with Olympic ties to condemn Russia’s anti-gay laws, days ahead of the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

In a post on its consumer blog Tuesday, the telecom giant wrote: “We support LGBT equality globally and we condemn violence, discrimination and harassment targeted against LGBT individuals everywhere. Russia’s law is harmful to LGBT individuals and families, and it’s harmful to a diverse society.”

The brand, not an international sponsor of the Olympics like Coca-Cola, Visa, Samsung, McDonald’s and several others, has been a corporate backer of Team USA for 30 years. Some of its current advertising features U.S. Olympians Heath Calhoun (alpine skier), Noelle Pikus-Pace (skeleton) and Justin Reiter (snowboarder). Read more...

The storm, which some are calling "Winter Storm Janus," brought snow on Tuesday across the Mid-Atlantic. The National Weather Service predicts that the storm system will strengthen overnight off the east coast, spreading heavy snow and winds off the coasts of New England and the Northeast. Massachusetts could potentially experience blizzard conditions, and temperatures across the eastern U.S. will be 10 to 25 degrees below average
