Many Pittsburghers Sick Of Cold Weather, Snow

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Much of the country is dealing with the coldest temperatures in decades.

In some cities, they are 30 to 50 degrees below average.

With another snow storm headed this way this weekend, Pittsburghers will have to suffer through yet another deep freeze.

While seagulls on the North Shore seem to be enjoying our frigid temperatures, those of the human variety in Pittsburgh are frankly sick of it.

"I can't stand it. I want to get out of here to some warm weather," one man said. "I don't think [Mother Nature] would like to hear what I have to say right now."

Many folks have grown tired of heavy coats, big scarves and gloves and are longing for the dog days of summer.

However, there are the select few who like the cold.

"I wouldn't live in western Pennsylvania if this made me sick," one man said.

More snow is on the way and temperatures will remain in the teens.

The Pittsburgh area is in a deep freeze and some counties are hoping for the big thaw, but not too quickly.

Parker, Armstrong County is bracing for flooding.

There are ice jams along the Allegheny River from Parker to Kittanning. As a result, Paarker's 804 residents are bracing for whatever happens when the ice breaks and begins to move.

So, although we may get some sunshine, don't let it fool you. This second arctic blast may even colder than the first one.
