Many Minnesotans had to work outside Monday as the Arctic blast arrived.

A KSTP crew spent time with ramp workers on the Delta runway at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. They were out in the cold for 1 to 1.5 hours at a time.

They said the airline provided hand and foot warmers and encouraged them to take breaks and warm up inside if they needed to.

Ramp workers told KSTP they cope with the cold by layering up and watching out for one another.
