But summer is no sweat /or ]0 Denison laborers. \Vrestlii\g 40-pound loads, they work quickly in the big. chilly room, pausing only to wipe Ice crystals from their (aces Fog-like fingers of vapor creep over the ice-covered floor, Millions of pounds of bagged ice loom up in the frigid gloom like plastic-covered glaciers, dwarfing the p a r k a - c 1 a d workers. "The only thing I didn't like about working back there was that m y moustache and eyebrows kept freezing up." s*iid Anthony Pedra/a, 22. production manager at the Fun Time Ice Co. in Denison. While other workers fight the summer heat. Fun Time's crew labors in a frozen land where the temperature ranges from 10 to 18 degrees Fahrenheit The cold. Pedraza said, is no problem. "1 found that, if you're doing you're job in there, cold ain't what you're worried about." said Pedraza. who spent his first year on the job working in the cold room. "You lift 40 pounds all day. that's hard work. I've seen guys in there wearing just a thin shirt at the end of the day because they're putting out so much heat, going and going and going." Workers choose what they wear. "Some guys wear tons of clothes," Pedraza said, "and some don't wear much. It depends on what you're used to." He tells hew employees to dress warmly: double socks, jacket, a hood for the head. Pedraza has worked double shifts —• 16 hours at a time — in the big room. "The only thing that ever got cold was my feet. And you adapt after a while.' Now. I'm so used to the cold that I could go in there for an hour in nothing but shorts and a T-shirt." Quitting time means the ice men come out of an Arctic environment for a quick trip back to the sticky Texas heat. "A lot of guys say it's worse working in there in the summer because of the difference in temperature," Pedraza said. "But they say they'd rather work in there than outside, in the heat. And a job like this makes winters easy. After working in 18 degrees all day, coming out into freezing weather is nothing." I Please support the AMERICAN VCANCER f SOCIETY'
