It was right around the freezing mark, but the wind was whipping, and it was really cold.
And, I wasn't wearing a hat. The truth be known-- I had two baseball caps, earmuffs and a knit hat in my work bag, and that's where they stayed.
You see, wind is hard to show-- especially at 4:30 AM and there are no flags. The snow was too crusty to blow around. I had to use what's left of my hair to illustrate the conditions.
Yes, we did receive a couple of emails and Facebook messages. Rest assured, I'm fine. Seconds after I finished my report, I was back in the warmth of the truck.
And, there was a bonus. When I returned to the office, the news director slapped me on the wrist for going hatless. I was then rewarded with one of our new knit hats.
