Covering Wreath Ceremony - in the Cold

It was a heartwarming sight to see so many people at the Minnesota Veterans Cemetery for the event I was covering at Camp Ripley.  Of course, my heart was the only thing that was warm since it was about 10 degrees Fahrenheit with blizzard-like winds while wreaths were being placed by headstones.

And I would not recommend getting emotional and tearing up when there is a wind chill dropping the temperature below zero.  It's not pleasant.
