A storm that turned from rain to snow stopped the printing press at an Upper Peninsula newspaper.

Lightning struck the Daily Globe in Ironwood on Monday night, damaging the press and halting publication of the Tuesday edition. Subscribers instead were getting it on Wednesday, along with that day's paper.

The Daily Globe's website wasn't affected.

Ironwood had rain and temperatures in the 50s Monday before being slammed by falling temperatures and 6 inches of snow. Ironwood is in Michigan's western Upper Peninsula, 200 miles northeast of Minneapolis.
