In light of the extreme cold temperatures Craig has been facing, the Craig Daily Press hosted a contest Wednesday on Facebook in hopes of keeping readers in good spirits about the weather.
The contest asked readers to fill in the blank for the statement, “You know it’s cold when _.”
The newspaper received about 50 creative and humorous responses during the six-hour contest.
