LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- After a particularly brutal winter in some area, an organization called Lowe's Heroes decided to step in to the cities that were hardest hit to help families. 

Last week, the group came to Louisville to surprise one local family with a spring home makeover. The Cress family bought their home in 2010 and have been renovating it ever since. So, after the harsh winter, Lowe's Heroes decided to step in and upgrade their outdoor space so the family could spend some time outside.

Lowe's volunteers and Our Fifth House worked on the Cress family's outdoor dining space, living and pool area, in addition to completely landscaping their backyard. 

Lowe's Heroes volunteers spent most of their time in Boston helping local schools and playgrounds dig out from all the snow the city received in the winter months.

The following cities (listed in alphabetical order) round out the 10 U.S. cities with the harshest winters, according to Lowe's Heroes: 

  • Buffalo, New York
  • Detroit, Michigan
  • Hartford, Connecticut
  • Louisville, Kentucky
  • Nashville, Tennessee
  • Newark, New Jersey
  • New York City
  • Portland, Maine
  • Providence, Rhode Island. 

The winter severity index analyzes the intensity and persistence of cold weather, the frequency and amount of snow, and the amount and persistence of snow on the ground based on historical context.
