NORWALK - The bone chilling temperatures have most people in southwestern Connecticut staying indoors.

But for some employees at Liberty Tax, they have no choice but to spend the day outside dressed as the Statue of Liberty trying to get customers in the door.

Anthony Hunt, of Bridgeport, says the job is a great way to make a few extra bucks.

Hunt also says he gets about 40-50 honks a day from people passing by.
