     With temperatures hitting lows in the thirties for a third straight night, people are trying to find ways to warm-up.
    
     "I've just been bundling up.  It kind of sucks because it's April," says Laura Davis.
 
    "I'm actually in the process of moving so it's even more frustrating because I packed all my winter clothes and then subsequently had to immediately unpack all of my winter clothes," explains Joe Harbison.

     And the chilly weather has many heading indoors.  The Common Grounds Coffee House and Cafe in Lexington has been packed with people, looking for hot drinks.

     "I have been here everyday for the past week.  I'm here at Common Grounds because Common Grounds is extremely warm and filled with very hot coffee," comments Harbison.

     "Common Grounds has the best hot chocolate in the world," says Davis.

     It's been so busy at the coffee house, that owners had to run out and get extra supplies.

     "Usually our orders come in on Fridays for milk and it will usually last us way past Tuesday but we've actually had to run out to the store and pick up more milk for the specialty drinks which utilize the steam milk.  And, we never run out of half and half, so for us to run out of half and half is just a little abnormal. So, that was great.  That means coffee sales are going up.  We've definitely had to increase our purchases too," explains Common Grounds Coffee House and Cafe Owner Lori McCreary.
