ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  It came on early and it came on strong - a cold front - knocking temperatures below freezing.

"Woo! As soon as that sun went down, it was over," says Deionico Paige

Fresh off his shift at Schuff Steel, Paige and his co-workers had been working in the cold all day.

"That cold came in so fast. And you had a little breeze with it," he says.

"It jumped on us real quick this particular week. We feel as if we're going to have a pretty rough week, so we're just going to dress as warm as we possibly can," says Maurice Harris.

And the more clothes, the better, or at least the warmer. The unseasonably cool weather made the layered look the overnight fashion statement in Albany.

"Usually we have jumpers, overcoats. I'm wearing a coat with a hoodie here. Just trying to keep warm. Just trying to beat the cold with gloves and thermal socks," said Donald Rivers.

With temperatures holding steady in the 20's, the cold, damp air had everyone bundled up, especially those that work an early A.M. schedule.

Ed Walls, who is assisting with a morning paper route, is a native New Yorker. But even he admits this is a different kind of cold.

"A lot different. This is a damp cold down here," he says.
