I love stories like this. In Grand Rapids, we’re in the midst of experiencing one of coldest Octobers on record and they’ve been keeping records for around 100 years. The temperature is below average nearly every single day yet there are still a few goofs willing to freeze their kesters off and stand in the rain.
We also got an appearance from our mayor George Heartwell.
Grand Rapids Mayor George Heartwell was also among the group of 40 to 50 people that carried signs and banners and chanted.Then he jumped into his Ford Escape Hybrid and turned up the heat.
Heartwell, who was clad in a green hard hat, said he is convinced climate change is the "greatest threat facing the world today, bar none."
