Mid-Michigan business bundling up during extreme heat

Posted: Updated:
BAY CITY, MI (WNEM) -

While most people are shedding their clothes when it's this hot outside, there are some folks who have to put more clothing on when they go to work.

The Bouza Dairy distributor dispenses frozen food, primarily ice cream.  The building has been around since the turn of the last century and is a Bay City landmark. 

“I have roofers and construction at the dock all day buying ice trying to keep cool, all your festivals, all your ice cream shops they're all running full blast right now,” Distributor Greg Bouza said.

Believe it or not, it might not be a job you’d want when it’s around 100 degrees outside.

“I try to keep it between 15 and 20 below in there to keep, maintain your ice cream. But it can be hard on your body coming in and out of there all day. Yea, it’s hard,” Bouza said. “When you come out and you deal with the heat it feels like it’s twice as hot. It feels like you’re in a sauna then.”

Garrett Payne tosses around ice cream in the freezer. Like all jobs, it has its ups and downs.

“it's nice when it's hot outside but when it's cold outside it gets even colder in the freezer,” Payne said.

Bouza said teenagers find out real fast that working in the freezer might not be the best summer job.

“I've had kids come in, I've had a lot of summer help and I've had a lot of kids come in and spend 15 minutes in there in tennis shoes, in jackets, that's enough for me, I'm out of here, you know,” Bouza said.

It’s another example of watch what you wish for.
