A Franklin mail carrier wore three layers of clothes and kept heat packs in his gloves while on his daily route Tuesday.
Maurice Butler has learned how to deal with the cold in eight years of delivering mail. And the biting cold wasn’t as bad as he had expected, he said.
“It’s not bad today. I’m actually pretty warm right now. Not raining, not snowing, no snow to walk through, so it’s overall not a bad day,” Butler said.
“You have to layer your clothes, and you don’t want to overdress. Layer and take off as needed and keep moving.”
The temperature hit a low of 4 degrees Tuesday morning with wind chills as low as 10 degrees below zero. The weather was the coldest the area has had since Feb. 10, 2011, when a low of 1 degree below zero was registered at Indianapolis.
