FILE - This Dec. 19, 2013, file photo shows the shadow of the Capitol Dome cast onto the Senate side of Capitol Hill in Washington. A world-famous symbol of democracy is going under cover, as workers start a two-year, $60 million renovation of the U.S. Capitol dome. Curved rows of scaffolds, like Saturn’s rings, will encircle it next spring, enabling contractors to strip multiple layers of paint and repair more than 1,000 cracks and broken pieces. The dome will remain illuminated at night and partly visible through the scaffolding and paint-capturing cloths. But the Washington icon -- and portions of the Rotunda’s painted ceiling that lies below -- will be significantly obscured for many months.
As the temperature topped the freezing mark, icicles formed on many area houses Wednesday including this one near 62nd and Main streets. The reflection of the icicles could be seen in the storm windows of the home. More thawing is expected Thursday as the temperature could rise above 40 degrees.

Comedian Will Ferrell has said the inspiration for his character in the "Anchorman" movies was Crim, who moved to northeast Florida in 1998 after retiring as a WDIV-V news anchor in Detroit. Crim says that the film is a satire and he doesn't take offense to Ferrell's performance. He says he always took his work seriously but tried not to take himself too seriously.
