On a Cold Day, Some Search for Ways to Stay Warm

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Most people are searching for ways to stay warm today, even if it means working out or hitting up a local tourist attraction.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Most people are searching for ways to stay warm today, even if it means working out or hitting up a local tourist attraction.

KOLR10 stopped by a few local businesses in Springfield where, in some cases, were pushing 2,000 degrees.



"We are right downtown and we are the hottest place in town,” says Terry Bloodworth, of Springfield Hot Glass.

Bloodworth says the furnaces in the business can range from 900 degrees, 23,000 degrees and even 2,075 degrees.

“When we open doors to furnaces, you can usually feel the heat several feet away,” says Bloodworth.

Customers are invited to stop by to tour the studio and watch the artists up close.

“It actually feels great,” says Bloodworth. “It feels like, ah yeah, this is just right, about 90 degrees and 7 percent humidity. That’s exactly what you're looking for."

Or maybe you're looking for something a little different.

“The cave is 60 degrees and it stays 60 degrees year round,” says Pam Cole, with Fantastic Caverns.

It’s a good time for the family and is open every day.



"Is it walking? No. We're going to drive you all the way through,” says Cole. “And once you get in the cave, it's a balmy 60 degrees. They're going to drive a mile through the cave, and while you're there, you'll see all types of formations. We have a lot of stalagmites, stalactites and columns. You'll want to start taking your clothes off once you get in there on sure.”
Hot yoga is another option and it's one where you'll sweat and burn those unwanted calories from the holidays all at the same time.

"It's good to just come in here, relax, detox and just have a little me time,” says Alicia Epps.

That me-time includes a studio set at 104 degrees, 35 percent humidity.

"So it's not a real wet heat,” says Epps. “It's a dry heat and it feels wonderful. You can cleanse the body, release those toxins. Just kind of let everything go. Mentally, it's wonderful for stress relief."

And it'll warm those bones up in no time.

"This is the best time of the year to come to hot yoga,” says Epps.
