Some enjoy a night out despite frigid temperatures

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The extremely cold temperatures hitting the metro have sent most people in doors as much as possible.

On the other hand, other people went out for ice cream Thursday night where the temperatures were expected to dip below zero.

At Cold Stone Creamery on the Plaza, several families were out enjoying their favorite flavors.

For the Fry family, it is a tradition to see the lights before they are turned off for the year.

"I actually am enjoying it, because it's so fun being down here but now my hands are freezing," Camryn Fry said.

Although some people do know how to have fun on such a cold night, it is still important to remember that it can be very dangerous outside.

On a cold night in the single digits with low wind speeds, frostbite can set in within about 30 minutes. Watch out for symptoms like numbness or discoloration in your skin.
