Winter of 2007 cancels baseball and kills otters

So far the Winter of 2007 has closed airports, disrupted rail traffic, broken records, destroyed buildings, frozen rivers, closed highways, threatened crops and disrupted hearings into global warming.

And now it is disrupting baseball in Cleveland and elsewhere.
