This morning we are dealing with very cold, possibly dangerous temperatures.

It's important to make sure you are prepared for the weather before leaving home to avoid dangers like frostbite. 

Durham School Services moved to a new bus barn last July. 

They now have a facility where they can house a lot of their buses for the Waterloo School District indoors. 

Workers start arriving at 4 in the morning to get the buses prepared for their morning routes. 

It's important that kids are prepared to wait outside in the cold for their bus to arrive. Layers are very important. According to a doctor at Allen Hospital, it is possible to get frostbite in less than half an hour when it is this cold out. This is especially true if you are not dressed properly.
