People find ways to deal with the cold weather

Posted: Updated:

The cold weather impacts just about everyone.

Gary Irvin has been an outdoor greeter with Liberty Tax Service since December. He knew it was going to be a cold week so he planned on dressing in layers.

Irvin said he didn't expect the temperatures to be this cold, so he takes breaks during the day to get warm. He said he will not allow the weather to stop him from doing his job.

The playgrounds at Green Ridge Elementary in Cumberland County were quiet on Tuesday. The Cumberland Valley School District's policy to keep students indoors for recess when the temperatures reach a wind chill factor of 17 degrees was enforced. 

Chad Runkle has been the principal at Green Ridge for four years. He said during bad weather days when the temperatures are not a factor, the principal decides if students can participate in outdoor recess.
