minutes before we had to come inside. odot is adding calcium chloride to help keep things from freezing because it is so cold. they've been out ahead of the snow. 80 trucks and drivers on roads across three counties. they're not the only ones pulling double duty. there are several independ plow companies getting ready for a busy night. >> as soon as the weather stations start putting out 1 to 3 inches, that's what we start getting our equipment ready and getting ready to go out that night or morning. whenever it hits. >> reporter: now to give you an idea of how busy chuck might be this evening, he will hit between 100 and 150 locations over the next several hours. now other drivers that i talked to said they will hit between 60 and 70 locations. these guys will be busy. odot will be busy. we'll be busy keeping track of all of this. >> john, thanks so much.

it is down right frigid here. forgettable cold. it is frigid. the temperature is a mere 7 degrees. when you factor in the windchill, feels like negative 11. now normally schools would be closed due to that temperature tomorrow, but remember tomorrow is a holiday, so thankfully parents, teachers, students should not have to worry about that in the morning. this advisory is in in effect for areas south and west of cleveland. it is a combination of strong wind and the cold temperatures that creates this dangerous condition. frostbite can set in in minutes and hypothermia is a real possibility. three things to keep in mind. keep your skin dry. insulate your body and block the wind. by doing that you can layer your clothing. the outer layer should be tightly woven and wind resistant. if you have wool or silk to use as your inner layer of clothing, that will hold the body heat in. your hat, scarf, gloves, boots.
that is a sign your body is losing heat. we are shivering out here right now so we are going to head back in the truck. >> good idea. thanks so much. you can stay on top of conditions on the go with our news net 5 app. download it now. we have just confirmed the intersection of chester avenue and east 40th street in cleveland has reopened to traffic. it had been closed for two weeks following a massive water main break. the cleveland water department says all repairs were completed this afternoon. new at 11:00, tonight friends and neighbors and strangers gathered in two cities over the weekend to support a couple whose son was killed in a sledding accident. 9-year-old drew hayden was the light of so many peoples lives. >> any time and any day you could roll right into the street and get hit by a car just like drew.
>> that big smile, those bright blue eyes, this was drew hayden. >> i hope that his family is praying for him. >> neighbors tell us he loved the browns and the color red. tonight this family added a browns teddy bear and a red scuffed puppy to drew's growing makeshift memorial. next to this is where more than 50 people huddled for prayer and song. there were firefighters, police officers, neighbors and family friends. rachel working with drew's mom, a nurse. >> she's hanging in there best she can. hasn't been easy. >> last night it was a similar scene in amherst and in the shadows of tonight's service was the hill where drew was sledding on tuesday when he collided with a passing car when he hit the bottom. >> i couldn't imagine the devastation and what the family is feeling, what the family is going through. he was just a little boy.
>> north ridgeville resident bobby morris remembers how excited his kids got about the snow and sledding down the same hill as drew. he never knew the 9-year-old. he made sure to take care of the teddy bears and flowers left behind for him. >> i just wanted to brush the snow off so people could still see it wasn't covered up with snow. that the family knows everyone does care. just something i wanted to do. >> reporter: now a coworker of the hayden family telling us drew was an only child. north ridgeville police do not intend to charge the driver. >> a musical celebration for a civil rights pioneer. university circle hosted a free concert today in honor of dr. martin luther king jr. students and faculty showcased some of his favorite songs and poems. reminder that most banks, government offices and some

>> so now it's on to the iowa caucus where the race is still tight between hillary and bernie. a new poll still shows hillary still ahead by 25 points nationally. coming up, the cold and snow isn't stopping some people from filling up their gas tanks. where drivers are filling up for less than $1 a gallon. freezing for a reason. dozens of people dive into icy waters to support a local cancer. >> i wish we were freezing for a reason here. temperatures single digits now. notice the cold air moving in from the north and west. windchills below zero. a lot to talk about.
taking a dive and windchills are dipping into dangerous digits. the lake effect snow machine is up and running and dropping several inches across our area. lauren wilson is live in lake county. now? >> reporter: the roads are pretty clear in most parts. as you can see, visibility is it's very windy. but honestly it's really like a ghost town out here. seems like most people are hunkering in for the night. just a lot of wind, as you can see i'm probably getting wind blown a little bit.
a pretty quiet night in lake county. tracy, back to you. >> thanks so much. if you have to go out tonight or tomorrow morning, you want to bundle up. remember to give yourself plenty of time. roads are slippery and blowing snow is making some travel treacherous. john rudder is keeping an eye on those conditions for us. >> reporter: a lot of snow still coming down out here. we are still on 322 southwest of chardon. we're still moving along here with this snowfall. give you a look outside of what we're dealing with. big snow flakes that we're seeing coming down. there's also a lot of wind causing that snow to blow and drift across the roadways. we've seen a number of plow trucks come the opposite direction. they're plowing that snow away and just a few minutes later you can see how covered the roads are. temperature wise it's bitter cold. we're looking at 6 degrees right now. very cold outside. and as we were driving around chardon a little earlier this
people out there on the roadways. visibility, pretty limited right now. down to probably a couple hundred feet. that can make things difficult for road crews when they're out attacking this snow. they're asking you to stay back, give them plenty of room. a lot of trucks taking care of the snow. we're out keeping you updated on these conditions. back to you. >> all right. thank yous so much. we told you gas prices could drop below a dollar a gallon this year. it happened today in michigan. drivers paid just 78 cents for a gallon of gas. another station is selling it for 95 cents a gallon. prices in ohio not that cheap. they continue to fall. the average price for a gallon of regular is $1.70 a gallon. crude oil prices dropped
