ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Despite today's cold, windy weather, some folks managed to enjoy some time outside. One Liberty Tax representative took to dancing to keep himself warm.

He started his work day advertising for the business outside at 8 this morning. He says the cold weather doesn't bother him.

"I like the cold anyway, the sun is shining and we have the wind going, its just a good combination," says Demarkus Thompson.

Despite the cold, car washes were still in operation today. The owner of DJ's Car Wash and Oil Change on Stuart Ave. says the secret to working in the cold is dressing in layers.

"When we get down to the low 20s is when we start worrying, but were not freezing up right now and we use hot water, we burn waste oil, and heat the water up so that helps us a lot.," says Jeff Wiggins.

He says business started out a little slow but picked up once people realized they were open for business.
