Commuters Deal With Frigid Morning Temperatures
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Early morning temperatures dipped into the teens, which made for a rude awakening for commuters.
Are you tired of people asking you if it’s cold enough yet?
“No, it is supposed to get colder tonight. It’s supposed to go down to about 12 degrees,” Rodney Scott said.
Interestingly enough, Jan. 3 2012, was the coldest day of the year with a low of 3 degrees. Regardless of the actual temperature, this cold snap has people’s attention.
“I would say right now. I could say right now it’s pretty cold. I could actually say that,” Dave Worthy said.
Some refuse to wear a hat until it gets really cold, while others say this is bad enough.
Perhaps it’s all a matter of perspective.
“To me it’s not that cold. Just a little blistery. The wind is what makes it worse, but I don’t think it’s that bad,” Jason Wargo said.
It’s a different story for Shallonda Jones who is much more worried about her 2-year-old Nehiamiah.
“Every morning, I am up at 5:30 watching the news to make sure I can get him bundled up as much as I can to keep him warm because he already has a cold,” Jones said.
Even if it is not fashionable, Scott said a good hat is a must.
“Because they are nice and warm. They keep your ears warm, they keep your head warm. They pretty much keep you like you need to be,” Scott said.
“Just coming and going. It’s cold enough in 10 minutes to freeze your you know what off,” Caren Jones said. “There’s not enough money for me to work outside.”
