The recent cold front, which slammed its way through the United States, left many people chilled to the bone with record-breaking sub-freezing temperatures. During this winter storm for an early fall, Nicole Chamberlain, who is a bus driver in Wisconsin, had a sharp eye, which could have very well saved the lives of two children. During Chamberlain’s bus route for Waukesha Metro Transit, she spotted two underdressed children, a boy who had on a T-shirt and pants and a girl with only a diaper and a T-shirt. The wind chill was 3 degrees Fahrenheit when she gathered the wandering children 6 and 2 years old and sat them down inside her warm bus.
Chamberlain told Fox 6 News, “No one had a coat on. It was snowing, and it was windy, and these were tiny little kids.” The surveillance video was released to the Waukesha Police Department, and it captured the entire scene showing Chamberlain using her coat to help warm up the kids. The audio on the video also captured the bus driver telling the children, “It’s OK, honey, we’re gonna figure it out. You’re nice and warm on the bus.” As the children were warming up on the bus, Chamberlain called the police. Thankfully, the children’s family were out looking for them when they heard “all the commotion.” It was then they found their kids on the bus safe and sound with Chamberlain keeping them warm.
Chamberlain continued to tell Fox 6 News, “I’m just thrilled I was in the right place and right time, but even more thrilled the situation turned out to be even better than what you hear sometimes. They went back, they were with a happy family. They were safe. That was most important to me.”
It is unknown what caused the children to wander off, but they can only see the kids snuck out of the house for a split second, and with the cold, they became disoriented. People sometimes have a way of being in the right place at the right time. Chamberlain is held as a hero in the city where the kids were found. Thankfully, this story had a happy ending. In Wyoming, a similar incident happened where a boy 16 years of age went missing after wandering off with only his pajamas. He is still missing.
Many people across the nation were caught off guard by this massive cold front. Meteorologist Janice Dean said on “Fox & Friends,” “You know what? 70 percent of the country is below freezing right now except Tampa and L.A. We had record-setting snow yesterday across the Great Lakes and the Upper Midwest, over two feet of snow. Freeze advisories from Texas all the way up towards the Southeast that means we are dealing with below-freezing temperatures as far south as the Gulf Coast. We even had snow in Texas yesterday.”
Since this story is almost as big as the impeachment, the News Media had no choice but to report it. Dean added on “Fox & Friends,” “We are still dealing with the potential for snow across the Great Lakes and the Northern Plains. Still cold today, tomorrow, even into the weekend, but things will warm up next week.”
Multiple accidents on roadways across the country occurred due to icy road conditions. It was reported airplanes slid off runways, and hundreds of flights were canceled. In the southern part of America, Texas to South Carolina experienced temperatures in the low 20s with wind chills in the teens.
Last year America witnessed a similar Winter storm, which blasted freezing temperatures in the teens for almost a week. Precautions should always be taken when dealing with these types of freezing temperatures. Much can be expected when it comes to these types of cold fronts since we have not even reached the beginning of Winter. Blankets, coats, warm drinks such as coffee, soup, and hot cocoa should be on the list of necessities when facing the bitter cold.
On the political side of things, Greta Thunberg and Democrats have not said a word about global warming. Where are the Democrats? Has the cold weather caught their tongue? Maybe their tongue is stuck to a metal flag pole somewhere. This is Mother Nature telling them to shut up because we are experiencing colder temperatures than usual. Yes, it does get hotter in the summer months, but this proves Mother Nature’s wrath can unleash cold fronts, which can make a grown man cry sometimes.
