STAFF PHOTOS SAMANTHA BAKER • @NWASAMANTHA Brandon Sabart with Lawnworks shovels snow Monday off the sidewalk of the First Baptist Church’s Studio 412 Student Ministry in Bentonville. Sabart said his shovel broke trying to pry up ice that has coated the sidewalks and parking lots in the area.

Temperatures in Northwest Arkansas plunged below zero for the first time this season after an incursion of arctic air stretched unusually far south into the Midwest.
