Some like it hot, some like it cold

Posted: Updated:

For crews working outdoors, this heat can be unbearable, but imagine working in freezing conditions and having to bundle up.

Imagine working outside when it's 110+ -- that's easy enough.  Now imagine going from 110 to 20 below zero -- a swing of 130 degrees.

Some like it hot, some like it cold.

If you're working outside, you know how tough it is.

On Thursday, an Arizona Department of Transportation landscaping crew was at the mini-stack I-10/Loop 202/State Route 51 interchange.

"You know, we try to hydrate before we come out here.  We try to get out of here earlier so we can finish earlier to stay cool," said ADOT's Albert Villegas.

But some workers stay cool all the time.  Make that cold.  In this part of the gigantic Bashas' warehouse in Chandler.

"I pull orders here in the freezer daily.. anything else they need me to do," said Jason Williams.

This is like being at the North Pole. 

"Correct.  It might be even worse than that," added Williams.

At 20 below zero, it's a little nippy.

Why do they have to keep this warehouse so incredibly unbelievably cold?  Well, it is to keep items like ice cream in good condition.

There are some benefits to working in a super cold place during a valley of the sun summer.

"I mean after spending awhile in there, you go outside to your car it is actually nice.. it doesn't last long, but that is what it is, like it is a huge swing," said Bashas' Rob Johnson.

So what's better?  Working in the heat or working in the cold?

"I would say being cold is better than being hot because I get to do that anyways on my days off," said Williams.

The Bashas' grocery warehouse in Chandler is the size of 14 football fields.  Wow.
