Columbus Students Endure the Deep Freeze
COLUMBUS (Andrew Michael/Kate Liebers) -- The weather was cold enough for many districts to cancel classes, but not enough to keep all students inside.
On the west campus of Ohio State University, agriculture student Andrew Weese attended the livestock.
He said the animals need more food in the cold, as their metabolisms rise to maintain their body heat. He also spent the day providing extra bedding and even heaters for the animals.
"(We have) been out here a little more than we usually are, fighting the cold all the time," Weese said.
He is not alone.
Patrick Roblin bundled up before making a two- to three-mile trek along Olentangy River Road to keep a doctor's appointment.
And while most construction sites were empty as work was called off for the day, crews were called to Upper Arlington after a water main break on Jervis Road.
City of Columbus officials said they have turned to outside contractors to keep up with all the pipe problems.
