On a night where the wind chills in Madison were expected to drop to -25 degrees, newly homeless Brian Currie found himself on line at the men's drop-in shelter at Grace Episcopal Church.
He wasn't alone: Waiting with him was about 170 other homeless men.
"Trying to stay as warm as you can, and it's hard to do," Currie said.
Currie lost his home just days ago, and while he?s waiting to have a new permanent roof over his head, he had no choice but to turn to shelters to keep him out of the cold.
Cane in hand, Currie and the others lined up for the drop-in shelter. The cold makes it harder for Currie to walk, but he knew the alternative would be staying outside for the night.
"This is actually the coldest day that we've had, but it's supposed to be like this for the next four or five days," Currie said. "So it's going to be rough, but I think we'll all make it."
