Baby, it's cold outside

Look at the halfway mark for my stuff.

I did one of those stories that I wouldn't do if I reported for a Northern media outlet... I did the "It is damn cold outside" story. Most of our audience is in the south, sometimes I just have to suck it up and do it.

However, I really nailed this one. It includes:

-- kids playing street hockey in -50
-- the water truck guys
-- a local musician playing his song "Water Truck Driver"
-- me freezing a cup of coffee outside
-- me using ikki in two ways, one to say "it is cold" and the other to say "it is really f'in cold out here".

They all can't be Woodward and Bernstein, fluff can be fun if you have the right attitude.
