Students struggle to keep warm


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- The freezing temperatures had some middle school students running for the warmth of the indoors.  For an unlucky few, Thursday's walk home was a long one.

"On a regular basis it's pretty cold, but today it's probably going to be really cold," said Hope Lowe, a sixth-grader at John Adams Middle School.  Lowe walks home from school regularly, but when wind chills dip below zero degrees she tries to keep warm any way possible.

"Usually I either stop and warm up-just use my hands to warm up. Or, I'll start running," Hope said.

Ethan Kaske braved the elements waiting for the bus.

"It's pretty cold outside, have to keep walking back and forth to stay warm," Ethan said.

The bitter cold has many struggling to keep warm and evade the dangers of such harsh conditions.
