Week in Pictures: Polar vortex, Creighton basketball

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It was a polar vortex. Also this week, we met the Cortez family. We worried about Creighton injuries, and we traveled to church services in Syracuse. World-Herald Week in Pictures: Jan. 6-12, 2014.

A chilly Shane Robak walks past a summery-looking image of a woman gracing a storefront window on Monday, Jan. 6, 2014. Robak, who works at Palm Beach Tan at 42nd and Dodge streets, braved the polar vortex that chilled Nebraska into subzero temperatures. KENT SIEVERS/THE WORLD-HERALD
