Darin Schill is a waste collector and urges you to take a few extra steps when taking your garbage out.
"Bag their garbage and tie it, it makes it a lot easier when the truck's dumping it so it doesn't blow around and it ends up in everybody's yard. And then if they have their garbage cans facing the right direction, then the lids don't kick the garbage back out," says Schill.
Garbage collectors aren't the only ones working outside.
"It's horrible today. It's not fun at all. The reason why we start on this end - the wind actually helps hold the sheet against the wall so I just slide it up the wall and it falls into place," say Chris Brendel & Reed Petryszyn, Framers.
The home Chris and Reed are working on sits on the north side of town with little shelter.
"There's nowhere out of the wind today," says Petryszyn.
Semi truck drivers may have the comfort of being inside their cab, but even they can't throw caution to the wind.
"I drove mobile homes before and in this wind you just stayed. You just waited until the wind was calmed down here and then be safe here on the road," says Hans Mellert, Semi Truck Driver.
These men leave you with some advice...
"Give the big rigs some room," says Hans Mellert, Semi Driver.
"Bag and tie it," says Schill.
And most importantly, if you catch wind of mother nature's icy breath...
"Dress in layers, keep warm," says Petryszyn.
High winds are forecasted to last through Thursday.
