People say the freeze warning starting at midnight Tuesday wasn't a big deal, it is the wind that came with it that chilled them to the bone.

As Clark County leaders warned people to protect their plants, pets and pipes as they do every time the temperature nears freezing in the Las Vegas area, most people were working to bundle up.

Many heading out for holiday shopping or a fall workout say they know temperatures are much lower elsewhere, but say the wind chill in the valley made things feel much colder than they were.

"I think it is the wind. That's what makes it bite. The outside isn't that bad.  It says like 51 on my phone, but it feels like 30 in Oregon," a man said during a break from his football practice.
