It's winter and, if you work indoors, the temperatures that are falling quicker than snowflakes should make you grateful.

Construction worker. Gas station attendant. Sanitation worker. Crossing guard. These are just some of the jobs.where you may have to stand outside in the frigid cold so long you won't remember if all of your toes are still attached by the time you head back indoors.
