Central Ohio Braces For Deep Freeze


The deep freeze is having a significant impact the way people conduct business at home and even work.
Employees at the Clintonville Drive-Thru on North High Street say the cold has forced them to close early several night.
The bone chilling cold has a drastic effect not only on business but also themselves.
The shelved in the drive-thru are empty, but the sign clearly states otherwise.
Employees say the deep freeze has done significant damage to their inventory. All of their beer and wine froze recently so now they have to keep it off the shelves and in a back room where they also have to keep warm while they wait for customers.
"Probably gets up to about 45 degrees at the most and that's on a good day," says James Brodbeck.
Meantime, Dorian Lafferre says a previous problem with frozen pipes has changed his routine.
"We'll be leaving the doors open and we'll also leave a little bit of water trickling and that should be enough to keep the pipes from freezing," he said.
Triple A says make sure you have a full tank of gas and blankets in your car. Triple A says it's experience more than triple the normal call volume Monday.
