Bob Arthur, of South Toledo, hoists up his four-year-old Yorkiepoo named Raith as the pair and Arthur's nine-year-old Lab Ginger, not pictured, take a walk in South Toledo. The National Weather Service reported temperatures in the Toledo area dropped to five degrees with a wind chill ducking to -11 degrees. Bob said he takes the dogs for a walk every day, no matter the weather. Within a block of their home Raith, who was wearing a sweater, needed a lift off the frozen ground. "It's horrible," he said of the cold temperatures, before adding, "but Ginger could be out here all day."

A rumor was spreading on Twitter, mainly among students complaining about going to school in the cold, that the zoo moved the bears inside due to the arctic blast. The bears have the option to go inside or stay outside according to Andi Norman, Director, Public Relations & Marketing at the zoo.
