Bitter cold blast hits the Bluegrass

The frigid temperatures gave many school children an extended winter break Monday.

34 school systems, mostly in eastern and southern Kentucky, were closed. Six others were delayed or had individual schools closed.

Bourbon County School officials closed Bourbon Central Elementary because the building's heating sytem broke. All other schools in the county were in session.

So far, officials say they aren't sure when the heating system will be fixed.
