Hot off the press -- even when it's freezing

Where were most folks this weekend throughout Manatee County? Inside, if they could be. The cold continues, and we seem to be talking of little else.

Well, think about this as you read your Sunday newspaper or browse through The Herald newsroom has no central heat. Yep, they built the Herald as a true Florida building back in the '80s. The land of sunshine and beaches, right?

And thermometers strategically placed throughout the newsroom registered in the mid- 50s last night. Inside. Brrrr, indeed.

So most headlines and layouts were done with gloved fingers, chattering teeth and capped ears. Let's raise a steamy cup of hot chocolate to the Herald's late-night crew.
