Time to Cope with the Cold

Posted:

We'd all like to deny it but the bitter cold is here.

With temperatures plummeting below zero, it's better not to venture outside if you don't have to.

But a few workers don't really have a choice when it comes to their jobs.

We talked to a couple of guys who are braving the tundra helping to keep others safe.

"Yeah it gets pretty cold, yeah."

"Most of us are pretty cold. The shells we get, they're not exactly the best coats in the world but we all find a way to make due with bibs, coveralls, gloves, you know, whatever we can find. But we have heated places to stand so it's really not the worst thing in the world to be out in the elements. But we're all from here, we're all North Dakotans. We all expect to get this," says Grant Lorenz, Park Med, Sanford Health.

The weekend looks to be even colder.

Just a reminder if you do leave your house - to dress warm and always carry a winter survival kit.
