Frozen leaves with icicles droop from a nearby tree as Laverne Lund of Cary, left, walks through the Hoffman Park dog park with yer 8-year-old yellow lab Manny on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019 in Cary. Lund and Manny are used to the cold, and the weather rarely stops them from their daily visit to the dog park. "Manny is ready to go anytime. He loves to come to the park," Lund said.
