Negative temps can’t keep local Girl Scouts from selling cookies

Bundled up in thick jackets, snow pants, scarves and hats Annabelle and Leah Scott embodied the Girl Scout motto to always be prepared as they sold cookies in below-zero temperatures Friday morning outside of Lion Head Coffee in Granby.

Alicia Scott, the girls’ mom, joked that she should have checked the weather before scheduling the cookie booth outside of the cafe, but that an unintended consequence has been quite a few passersby stopping to reward Annabelle, 8, and Leah, 6, for their dedication.

On Friday morning, temperatures ranged from -15 degrees at around 8 a.m. to -5 degrees at around 10 a.m, according to the National Weather Service.

Scott said the girls have sold enough boxes to make braving the frigid air worth it. It helped that she had packed blankets and plenty of extra cookies.

Annabelle and Leah are members of Troop 55319, which will also have a booth at the Grand Lake Winter Carnival on Saturday. Scott said they would also begin selling at City Market next weekend.
