Cold is the way it is today, very cold.

Minus 3 degrees in Providence this morning, tying  a record set in 1954. Snow forecast for this afternoon. All the shelters and warming centers are open but everything gets harder when it is like this. Getting around is more difficult. Getting to a place where meals are provided is harder. Many of the bus stops aren’t plowed and service is not ideal even in the best of times. But at least Jason and Samantha are warm. They have a decent place to live… for now. This housing, which they share with another couple, has been provided by Crossroads. But this arrangement is temporary, only theirs for three months. After that they could be back out in the cold.
