Workers face cold conditions


The bitter cold in Michiana had people scrambling to get warm.  Unfortunately, some have to work in these freezing temperatures.

Larry Neiswender is an ambassador for DTSB. He had to be outside most of the morning.

"In the position like ours, we're picking things up a lot and handling a lot of things.  So it makes it a little bit harder to function, obviously.  You're not quite so productive," says Neiswender.

He says there are a couple things he does to try and stay a tiny bit warmer.  "Keep moving as much as possible, and if you're lucky enough, keep your back to the wind," says Neiswender.

Josi Doyle owns a bookshop in South Bend.  She found herself having to brave the elements too.  "As a small business you have to do everything, so it's just me out here trying to get things set up," says Doyle.

Workers say the key is to take breaks and get warm.  They also say it's important to wear lots and lots of layers.
