SPOKANE, Wash. - It's brutally cold outside, and while most of us try to avoid spending time outside in the chilly weather some have no choice but to spend hours in the bitter cold.
No matter who you are being outside is less than pleasant. But for those who are routinely exposed to the cold it's just brutal.
"When your nose hairs freeze, you definitely know it's cold," Tim Webster said.
Justin Hurrman and Tim Webster work at R & R Heating and Air Conditioning and were working Wednesday to install a heating system in a future Kendall Yards home.
Yes, you read that right. A heating system.
"I never get the benefits of putting in what I put in," Hurrman laughed.
But they're looking on the bright side...
"We kind of joke around, we are like at least we are not a roofer, at least we have some walls," Hurrman said.
Temperatures are still in the single digits, the wind chill way below that, these two can see their breath, but they sure don't dress like it's freezing cold out.
"I just got two layers and a coat and one pair of socks on," Webster said.
"A coat, a sweatshirt, t-shirt and some long johns," Hurrman added.
So they continue to brave the cold to get the job done, staying positive … as in positive that their paycheck for suffering in the bitter cold is just around the corner.
"It's just a mental thing, it's got to be done, someone's got to do it, and you get paid so that helps," Webster laughed.
