Temperature so far this winter has been very cold and harsh.
We have already experienced three separate snowstorms.
There is currently snow and ice on the ground. Temperatures at night have been in the twenties or lower. Thankfully, this place does not have a huge homeless population. It would be very difficult to be homeless during this time of the year when it’s very hard to keep warm. I remember a couple of years ago when there was a story about a homeless man. The man broke into a warehouse so he could sleep in the boiler room. The boiler room was warm and safe. The owner of the business wanted the judge to throw the book at the bum, but the judge didn’t feel that the guy was trying to break the law. It was clear that the homeless man was only trying to seek warmth and shelter in the boiler room. Nothing was damaged except the door to the boiler room. The judge ordered the homeless man to pay for a new door, but the red cross paid those charges after they got involved in the case. A similar incident happened a couple of weeks ago, and I’m curious to see how the judge will handle things this time. A guy nearly died trying to stay warm. I believe that we have to do something about these homeless problems during the winter months. There aren’t a lot of people so surely there must be a place where we can house everyone so they don’t have to worry about freezing to death in these arctic and frigid temperatures.
