Sunshine welcomed 2018 to North Texas Monday morning, but bitterly cold temperatures still made inside the place to be. Roadways were mostly clear of slick spots, though overpasses and bridges still could fool you, and conditions should only improve throughout the day. “The drier air overnight really helped out,” said Matt Stalley, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth. Overnight, however, was still a little messy.
Four people died early Monday in car wrecks in Dallas. The first came about 12:30 a.m. when two men were killed in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 35E. One man was driving a 2013 Hyundai Elantra southbound on northbound I-35 when he collided with a 2012 Ford Expedition being driven by a 34-year-old man, according to a news release emailed by Dallas police. The driver of the Hyundai was pronounced dead at the scene and the 34-year-old victim died at a local hospital.
A cloudy and dreary Saturday grew colder throughout the day, thanks to an arctic front that promises to plunge the Dallas-Fort Worth area into a deep freeze. The cold air and biting north winds prompted Sundance Square officials to cancel their outdoor New Year’s Eve concert and celebration scheduled for Sunday night in Sundance Square Plaza. Other indoor events in downtown Fort Worth will go on as planned, according to a post on the Sundance Square Facebook page.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
