Hell, which is located about an hour west of Detroit, has completely shut down as temperateness hover just around 0 degrees in the heat of the day. Almost nobody has left their house. Stores are closed. It’s desolate.
“It’s a brutal day in Hell. It’s colder than Hell,” Jerry Duffie, a Hell groundskeeper told Click On Detroit.

And it’s not going to get better in until later. Tonight, Hell is expected to hit -5.
“We have seen an influx in the last few days with the bad weather,” Erik Kauser manager at the popular tourist spot Hell Saloon, said.
Reprieve from the frigid temperatures is coming, however. Tomorrow will be a balmy high of 17-degrees Fahrenheit, and the weekend will see temperatures in the high 40s and low 50s.
