Winter Weather Advisory
January 29, 2019
On January 30, 2019, Martinsville will be experiencing parts of Winter Storm Jaden. Wind chill temperatures dipping into the -40’s are to be expected and the overall temperature is predicted drop to -11 degrees Fahrenheit. These extreme temperatures bring up the concern of catching hypothermia or frostbite; which are both possible if the correct precautions are not taken!
For those who walk to school like Coda Scroggins, he understands that hypothermia and frostbite can set in quickly. Because of this, “ I have to wear more clothes walking to school which is a problem because when I get to school, I have to basically undress myself and get ready all over again.”
Nevertheless, no matter how you plan your transportation anytime the temperatures drop, be sure to bundle up. Hats, gloves, coats, scarfs, and an extra pair of socks are all precautions you should take into consideration when heading out into the cold.
