Working In Frigid Temperatures
Some people had little choice but to stay outside today, its their jobs. Extra clothing and a positive attitude provided some help.
Robbie Moore, a worker at Ammons Drive In in Waynesville, has been walking back and forth to customers' cars for 20 years. He says you just bundle up with plenty of layers and use common sense.
In Sylva, Ralph Conner could enjoy retirement and stay warm at home. But Conner says he'd rather stay busy volunteering to bag and take customers groceries to their car at Harold's Supermarket, even in these temperatures.
Some places were just too cold to work outside, like Tube World in Maggie Valley. But they have the snow jets piling up the snow for later this week.
Volunteers for Meals on Wheels in Jackson County are making Monday deliveries for homebound seniors. But adjustments are in place as temperatures plummet. Deliveries are cancelled for Tuesday because of the frigid temperatures.
