Brutally cold, well-below zero air temperatures are tough to deal with, especially if you're homeless. Scott Ely of Bloomington spent the night at the Salvation Army's Safe Harbor Homeless Shelter. He says extremely cold temperatures demand changes, especially with wardrobe.

"Churches here in town provide assistance. Second Presbyterian Church, Salvation Army provides clothes. Home Sweet Home mission provides clothes."

Ely was one of about 60 people having lunch at the Shelter today. About 80 people spent the night.
