The winds were particularly fierce in Berrien County Monday, blowing snow across the roads making it even more difficult to drive.

Emergency responders will always tell you not to drive unless necessary. But for people who work outside, it is necessary.

"You're not as efficient as you'd like to be," says Ron Schults, who is building a horse arena and stable. "We hope in January and February we'll be inside the equestrian center by our fireplace, nice and cozy, watching the gals riding their horses."

"Very windy, very cold and a job that has to be done and we have to work through it," adds the contractor, Joey Andrews.

Restaurants serving soup and hot tea were very popular, as people try to warm up and defrost from the frigid temperatures.

"We're going to have it no matter what, so I'm going to enjoy it," Tina Derosier says, as she enjoys a nice hot meal at a local restaurant, Caffe Tosi.

Lonna and John Salnoske enjoy this weather as well. They spend the lunch time every day at Silver Beach. Monday they were parked in their car with the heat on high, enjoying some chili and watching the crashing waves.

"We're down here when it's 80 and we're down here when it's windy, cold, sub-zero,” Lonna Salnoske shares. “We embrace this."
