Pizza delivery workers among those busy during deep freeze

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - You've heard that 90 percent of success is just showing up -- and that's especially true for those who deliver pizza and other hot food during this week's cold snap.  

Scott Perkins delivers for Glass Nickel Pizza in Madison. He tells WMTV that the key to success is having a good car battery, dressing appropriately, and having a spare key so his car can stay locked and running while he's at the door.  

Perkins learned that last lesson the hard way last September. He kept his vehicle running -- and it was stolen while he was dropping off a pizza. The car was later found abandoned near a Madison shopping mall.  

Lots of folks are choosing to have food delivered instead of cooking during the cold wave. Perkins said it's as busy as a Packer game day -- when drivers can make twice as much as on a regular day.
