The Winter Solstice arrives at 10:28 this morning.

1 - Temps hovering near freezing will give us a wintery mix on this Winter Solstice Thursday. Sleet and freezing rain could cause some slick spots on the roads before turning to rain. Your Pinpoint Forecast from Local 4 News is here.

2 - The Quad City Mallards dropped another game with a 5-4 loss in overtime to Fort Wayne last night. Their next game is tomorrow night. Scores and more when we do That Sports Thing at around 7:30am.

3 - If the kids are wound up and you need a break, take them to see Polar Express in 3D at the Putnam Museum. Details and more entertainment news when we do That Entertainment Thing at about 8:30am.

4 - When I was a kid, my step-dad would make homemade egg nog in a shaker. It was nasty. I haven't been able to stomach the stuff since. What about you? That's my Craig's Question today - Egg Nog - yummy or gross? Sound off on our Facebook page.

Have a great Thursday. The ride back to summer begins today.

- Craig
