Good morning, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you take a break from chiseling ice off your car windows.

— Thousands of duck and geese are mysteriously dying off the shores of Lake Erie. Scientists have no idea what's causing the deaths yet, but remind us that it's never too soon to panic. (WOIO)

— Josh Cribbs was at the NBA All Star Game last night and tweeted his support for "his boy" LeBron James.

They should have been more upset that Cribbs basically sucked last year, but whatever. (NewsNet5)
