Friday is another bitterly cold day in Boston. With the wind chill factored in, it feels like it's minus 2 degrees outside. And, there's no immediate relief in sight.

Despite the cold weather, Boston's First Night will continue as planned.

Officials have warned about the weather, advising Bostonians to bundle up. But the cold is perfect for ice sculptures.
