I'm getting ready to head out to work. I've got my thermal underwear on.

2. Be sure to put your hat on.

Don't forget your gloves.

Question: Do you have two pairs of gloves, 1 pair for fueling, a 2nd pair for everything else?

23. I have one pair of work gloves that I use for everything on the truck.

I don't wear normal gloves or driving gloves.

I go to Tractor Supply Company and get these work gloves that come in a package of three. They are orange and gray. They are heavy duty and one pair will usually last me a month. I think the three packs are about $5. Not a bad deal.

26. Well, look at it this way, wind...

You are apparently used to the cold.
Us residents of the far South turn into astonished paralyzed popsicles anytime the temps drop below 40.

I will say this, however....the cold temps east of the Mississippi are a more painful cold than the same cold temp on the West Coast. It is, indeed, the humidity.

Tonight: Low temp: minus 13F, winds gusting to 25mph, possible wind chill of minus 40F.

11. A Christmas Story is one of my favorite movies.

Last time I wandered home from work through NH it was summertime.

I remember thinking how beautiful everything was.

I also remember having thoughts about how much I didn't want to be there in winter.



I'm hibernating until Spring.

Today, I'm fighting a losing battle to make a run to BJ's.

I'm outta ice cream bars. [img][/img]

21. A Christmas Story is old home week for me.

I remember my Old Man going rounds with the coal furnace -- expanded my vocabulary by a factor, if not for the better.

NH is beautiful. In fact New England's landscape is one of nature's masterpieces -- one of my favorite vids.

Yeah, the winters can be tough, but, oh my, the rest of the year, worth the wait.

Right. Ice cream bars in the dead of winter. You're a player.

According to my outdoor thermometer, it is 58 degrees, but tonight a winter storm will be arriving. Some parts will be getting a lot of ice. Hopefully, it will not be my area. I have been through enough ice storms.

There are tricks for driving on ice but it's a skill you learn through practice.

Instead of building that big wall along the Mexican border, and blocking the WARM air,
we should have built it along the Canadian border to block the cold air.

The only reason I didn't was because the fresh raspberries would freeze.
