Feeling the freeze in the deep south

Folks aren't lingering outdoors this morning unless they have to.  It's one of the coldest days in year for metro New Orleans.  Highs will only reach the upper 30s today and wind chills will be in the teens and 20s.

"Yes sir! It's real cold!" one frigid commuter told WWL First News, as all around town, folks wrapped up tight.

"Yeah, definitely since that flu's going around, I don't want to catch that," another commuter told us.  And people say they're wrapping up their homes, too, with tomorrow's lows down to the low 20s south of the lake and mid teens on the Northshore.

"Plants wrapped up, pipes wrapped up, I'm wrapped up," said one.

"I have to make sure my pipes are wrapped tonight," said another.

And one man suggested maybe he can escape the cold: "I'm going to be in Texas tomorrow.  It's going to be a little warmer, I hope."

Maybe, maybe not: Most of Texas is forecast to at least have freezing overnight lows, with maybe only Brownsville, on the Gulf Coast and bordering Mexico, escaping with lows in the upper 30s.
