The Olmsted Co. Sheriff's Department is asking criminals to postpone all unlawful activity until temperatures return to normal. The Sheriff's Department borrowed the idea from a Sheriff's Department in Alabama and posted the funny cancellation earlier this morning.

In all seriousness, the Sheriff's Department's operations are not changing. They'll still be patrolling for crime and assisting residents in need.  Props to them, the Rochester Police and Fire Department, and all first responders who are putting their own lives in danger to protect others in this extreme cold.
