While schools and universities might close due to the coldest weekend of the year, city operations and many businesses have no choice but to stay open. In DeWitt, Mich., temperatures dropped as low as 11-below degrees Fahrenheit. Most would seek shelter and warmth in those conditions, but a few brave the cold to serve the residents of DeWitt. Everyone from city workers to small business owners to restaurants have no choice but to carry on with operations as normal. It is not always easy or ideal, but its the price to pay when working in a small, winter town.
