"The spotlight can actually put out quite a bit of heat. And we sometimes use that to help warm up the glass, the colder the temperature the less likely it is that the sticker will adhere to the glass."

"There's some one way streets that I would normally enforce by getting out and walking. While obviously when it's this cold it's that's not going to happen. So I will concentrate more on parking meters."

Extreme cold and record-breaking low temperatures are settling across parts of the Midwest after a powerful snowstorm pounded the region.
Forecasters say the weather could be life-threatening.
Subzero temperatures will begin Tuesday, but Wednesday is expected to be the worst. Wind chills in northern Illinois could fall to negative 55 degrees (negative 48 degrees Celsius), which the National Weather Service called "possibly life threatening."
Minnesota temperatures could hit minus 30 degrees (negative 34 degrees Celsius) with a wind chill of negative 60 (negative 51 degrees Celsius). The potentially record-breaking low temperature forecast in Milwaukee is negative 28 degrees (negative 33 degrees Celsius), with a wind chill as low as negative 50 (negative 45 degrees Celsius).
Mark Lewis, Parking Enforcement Officer for City of Milwaukee, says the weather is brutal but he tries to make changes to his routine so he doesn't have to go outside the vehicle as often. He says he walks outside less and tries to keep a positive attitude.
