The cold temperatures bearing down on Indiana should move out of the area by the weekend.

People across Bloomington are hoping for Spring with temperatures seemingly stuck in the single digits. Bike Garage Inc. employee Alex Jerden wore a sweatshirt while locking up bikes for sale.

“I’m ready for it to heat up, ASAP would be nice. It’s supposed to be 40s next week and that’ll be nice. At least I can get out and do a few more runs. I’m ready for winter to be over. But we forget that we had 80 degree days all the way up to November. So we’re kind of spoiled in that regard,” said Jerden.

Other people in Bloomington say they’re used to worse weather conditions and this latest cold snap, while uncomfortable, could be much worse.

“I’m used to it, I’m from Northern Indiana, it’s a lot colder out there. This is kind of like a break from that kind of weather; up there you get a lot more snow, a lot more rain, a lot more ice and stuff like that. So, it’s a little of a break down here.”

City Worker, Scott Corner has his own of keeping warm while he works outside.

“Lot’s of layers, eat well, sleep well,” said Corner.   

According to the National Weather Service temperatures are supposed to reach into the mid-40s by the end of the weekend.
