Construction Crews Happy To Avoid Heat

Construction Crews Happy To Avoid Heat
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

After a hot weekend, the Canadian air has arrived and with it, cooler than average temps. While it may not be the hot weather needed for a nice day at the pool, people who work outside aren't complaining.

A double-digit decrease in temps will add a pep in the step of just about everybody working outdoors in mid-July. That's definitely the case here as construction crews with T & R Contracting work to finish up Russell Street.

"When it is cooler like this you see everybody in a better mood. The attitudes are really good and they know it's cooler. It seems like they move a lot quicker," Terry Gulbrandson said.

Usually sweatshirts and jackets are reserved for the fall and winter but some crew members are breaking them out now with overnight forecasts dipping into the 40s. Others just like jackets regardless of if it's hot or cold.

"That guy there, I think he always wears a jacket. So I don't know, sometimes we wonder why he wears them. I guess he wants to," Terry said.

While crews love the below average temperatures, they're really just happy it's not raining.

"Yeah we'll try and work a little later each night and work a little longer on Saturday, try and take advantage of it and catch up some time from all the rain earlier this year. We're a little behind but we're making ground," Dana Gulbrandson said.

And they'll keep making it up with unusually cool temps sticking around for a few more days.

"It's kind of a nice little break but we know the heat is coming back," Dana said.
