5:06 am
called the wind breezes? i don't use breeze except in the summer, you know, like that famous hit, i'm going to call it a gust. because a gust is a close word to a punch. and it is a four letter word. and you want to utter four letter words when you get hit with a gust. that american flag, you can see, now wrapped around the pole, because it has been twisted all day. and it is really gusting out here, maybe we're in the worse spot not far off the delaware river here in camden, right at haddon avenue across from the police headquarters, but those wind gusts really make that windchill go even lower than the post dollars windchill in the weather reports. frostbite believe it or not hits more people in the cities say than a mountain climber. mountain climbers know what they're get nook. people in the city think they'll just be in and out in a few minutes, but frostbite sets in in minutes like for your kids walk to go school. now, we got the bus stop here. see those people taking shelter, in reality there because they got the three sided glass shelter, one guy sitting down, one guy
5:07 am
standing, because the bench is so cold, that cold metal that's been out here, like sitting on ice block boy the wait for the bus is excrutiating. we see couple every buses coming. maybe these guys will be getting on the warm new jersey transit bus real soon here. but it is an excrutiating wait for anybody who has to be outside, and specially for the kids walk to go school, the man behind the camera, chris fox, his kid yesterday shows up out of school with no hat on. because little kids don't like wearing hats, gloves, too cool for that stuff, you are going to make sure your kid is all bundled up, especially if they walk to school. we saw boston schools closing for today. so we saw some of the school closings that we saw in chicago area yesterday, in the midwest, starting to go to the east coast but very dangerous for these kids walking around today. there is a guy without gloves across the street from us right now fingers and toast can also be the ones that hit the frostbite. but usually nose, ears, chin, cheeks exposed because you don't cover your face as much as you normally do, even if
5:08 am
you don't have gloves on, notice little kids like to shove their fingers newspaper their sleeves, always sad site to see in philadelphia for the kids going to school. but look at the metal signs all blowing around here. now let me show you some video. just couple of blocks away from here, we saw one good sign. that was not as many homeless people or people who normally live on the streets taking shelter, in the transportation center. we did see few. some of the people really even though they were indoors, it is cold inside there. you can see, they had blankets on them. they had their heads covered. they tried to get some sleep and tried to get some warmth in there. but it was real tough even inside a building. that's how cold it is, i'm telling you we're sitting in the truck with the heater on and it is still cold in there. and the outreach people here in camden colds chris o'connell last night they were very busy. >> it is just so cold. and it is amazing the young people that were out here tonight. i mean, two gals just got released from the county jail, came out here in it. shirts, and had nothing and
5:09 am
we had brand new coats hats, gloves, able to end game them in conversation, give them cards that they could connect to, hey, if you want to call somebody really need somebody to talk to help you walk along the way we're here. >> they were very appreciative. we're happy to be here. we recognize all of us could be in the same position, all one day away. we don't know what may happen day-to-day. so just honored to be able to be here and be a part of the community and provide it valuable service. >> let's come back to the live picture. you can see the american flag here away from the pole, pulling on the rope now, gives awe sense of how stiff the wind is out here. so i'm not going to use the word breeze all day today because i'm getting hilt by the win even though i have the truck blogging me. by the way nestle doesn't just make hot chocolate. they made spring water. they made the mistake i want it little cool, and look, it froze, that fast. and so now i follow this out with the truck heater. so while you guys enjoy the hot chocolate, i have the nestle pure life ice water today. real stoop toyed drink ice
