KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The first major cold snap of the year has a grip on East Tennessee.

Tuesday morning temperatures dipped into the teens in some areas creating dangerous conditions.
    
Cory Davidson has spent many early mornings making deliveries in some of the most adverse weather conditions and the cold is no different.

"I handle pretty good," said Davidson. "Just had to layer up, put the gloves on and get used to it. It's coming."

And once it got here, it stayed put. As the morning went on, temperatures remained well below freezing. Even the bright morning sunshine couldn't help things, making it difficult for some people to get out the door.
     
Georgia Adams says she wasn't looking as forward to that morning walk with her dog Jackson as usual.
     
"Not very much at all," said Adams. "It's very chilly."

Jackson, however, didn't seem mind.

"Jackson's got lots of fur and nature on his side so he's okay," said Adams.
 
Georgia also has geography on hers. She moved here from much further north and had this advice for those not as familiar with the cold.

"Honestly, layers," said Adams. "It's all about the layers. Make sure you have your head covered and got plenty of layers on."

"I've got three right now and one sitting in the truck," said Davidson.

With temperatures forecast to remain below freezing the  next couple days, you may want to keep those layers handy.
