Winter storm Astro in the Midwest, and an arctic front plunging into the south, the icy weather is having an impact on those traveling to the “snow zone” from the Central Coast.
We met a few people today who said they’d worry about buying a coat once they feel the extreme weather.
On Tuesday many were traveling to the cold for the first time while other flew in to San Luis Obispo with tales of icy conditions.
Carin Ryan, a flight attendant, flew back from freezing conditions.
“It’s amazing,” Ryan said, “This morning I left Oklahoma City and the wind chill was down to 15 degrees!”
Ryan said, “I was in Edmonton Canada two nights agoand Oklahoma City last night.
Edmonton was already seeing snow. The storm was definitely on its way down through North America,” Ryan said.
Some were traveling to cold weather for the first time, like Annie Rose Seifert a Cal Poly student headed to Kansas City, Missouri, for an Agriculture Broadcast conference.
“It’s really hard to beat SLO weather, I think most people will agree. She said, “I’m looking forward to some cold weather and some winter to go into.”
