Residents of the Bronx were quick in adjusting to the switch from snowy weather to the deep freeze. NY1's Erin Clarke filed the following report.

By early morning the snow stopped falling, but then came the bitter cold. For the second time in a matter of weeks it was back to arctic temperatures and anyone stepping outside had to be sure to bundle up.

"I got on my Cart Hart type suit from Walmart, make sure I stay warm and cozy," said one Bronxite.

The cold weather didn't stop people from their daily routines, including heading off to school, even if the trek was difficult.

"We're New Yorkers, we're troupers, that's why we're going out to work and what we do is we car pool," said one Bronxite.

"I had to jump over a lot of snow and I almost slipped like three times," said another Bronxite.

The sluggish commute is one reason teachers say they would have appreciated a bit of extra time.

"I would like a delay at least because the buses are running very slow," said one teacher.

"School should be open, but just safety first for the students. I agree with her, maybe the delay should have been implemented today just so the students could get there safely," said another teacher.

Most Bronx residents who spoke with NY1 agreed the city made the grade when it came to preparing and clearing up after this storm and went on about their day just as they would any other.
