Frigid Cold Makes for a Rough Commute

This morning's commute turned out to be one of the coldest Michiana's seen in years.

The temperatures bottomed out at negative 6 degrees with a wind chill of 28 degrees below zero.

At those temperatures, uncovered skin can get frost bite in less than 20 minutes.

Since most schools were closed, commuters on their way to work told us what they thought of mother nature's cold snap.

“It's treacherous. The roads are bad. If you don't have to go out, I'm going to tell people not to go out, really. I'm glad the kids are out of school today because it's really dangerous," says Donna Johnson.

Another commuter, David Holt, had this to say, “It's really piercing if you're out there very long. You can really feel it in your skin so you don't want to stay out there too long. I can actually feel my skin getting tight so it's definitely cold."
