Snow Slows Holiday Shopping

An arctic chill is blasting the Northeast.

This weather comes on the heels of the thousand mile storm that socked states from Kansas to Maine, where temperatures have been stuck below freezing, reports CNN's Alexandra Field.

But the consequences of this storm may have a wider impact than just slowing down your day.

In the middle of the holiday shopping season, FedEx says winter weather and high winds have caused major disruptions at the company's Memphis, Tennessee, hub that could delay shipments across the United States.

And  a week before Christmas, the mix of snow, sleet , and ice was fierce enough to stop most shoppers  during one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year.

Colorado School Shooting Victim in a Coma

Friends of Claire Davis, the 17-year-old senior critically wounded in Friday's shooting at a Colorado high school, are wondering why bad things happen to good people.

Davis is in a struggle for her life at a hospital in Littleton, near Arapahoe High School, where a classmate shot her in the head.

She remained in critical condition Sunday, reports CNN's Casey Wian.

"She is stable, but is in a coma. The first responders got Claire to the right place, at the right time, and the doctors and hospital staff are doing a wonderful job taking care of her," her family said in a statement.

"We appreciate your continued good thoughts and prayers, and will provide updates as her condition improves."

Police say the gunman was looking for revenge against a librarian, but couldn't find the faculty member and killed himself as a school resource officer closed in.

Davis was just a random victim, police surmised, and the gunman and victim didn't even know each other.

Davis' classmates spoke well of her. They used words like spunky and bright.

"She was just a very sweet girl. She's really smart," August Clary told CNN affiliate KUSA. He said Davis loves to ride horses and "wouldn't hurt a fly."

Hundreds of people attended a vigil for Davis on Saturday night.
