    Default IT IS COLD!!!!!!!!(my beer froze)

    It was -19 when I fired up my truck this morning but wasn't too bad to work in. Was still able to do the day with longies and only a hoodie on.

    I got home this afternoon fired up my personal truck and made a beer run. I live about 7 miles from town and by the time I got home (not thinking, i threw the beer in the bed, made a quick stop at the grocery store) all the bottles were almost completely frozen. Wanting to drink one I threw it under my armpit. I don't recommend this warming method as it is very similar to licking metal in the cold. I will be needing a skin graft soon as it peeled off about a yard of skin. Enough of my rant, I just needed to vent a bit. The great thing is that it is supposed to be even colder the next two days.

    -30f for the next few mornings here.. looks like its gonna lift for the weekend though. Goin thru the fuel oil faster than the alcohol now !

    We had some beer near-freeze like that.. you could see the frozen crystals in it.. bud gave another bud a bottle, then sorta cheer's clanked it with his own.. not hard, but the thing just went POP.. glass in the buds hair and lap etc.. nothin left but the neck of the bottle in his hand and a wet lap. lol

    No injuries, good nite of drinkin.
    (May you live in interesting times)

    Not much work here because of all this cold. I'm staying home today. I think I'm gonna build a ice shack. That should keep me busy.

    24 degrees.........that is when I break out the shorts and flip flops. For todays ex-beer-iment I wanted to see how long it would take for room temp beer to get to that frosty drinking state. Temp outside is a balmy -5 with a wind chill around -25. About 16 minutes and it is tasty. Wind chill is supposed to hit -50 tonight so I am guessing that it would fall in the 8 minute area that it would be drinkable. The mind has WAY to much time to wander during the slow winter months.

    Bubba I feel for ya man! That had to hurt a bit!! I will try to stop laughing any minute now!@!


    We have had strange weather here this winter today is zero, two days ago minus 30 something.

    I think eastern Canada (Dave72 country) are getting it worse than us though.

    What I hate is all the freekin snow, today did a locate for the power company 200 M (620 feet) in snow up to my knees. Had to locate gas main, water main, primary and secondary power in separate trenches, traffic, and telephone.

    What would take me about two hours in summer, took 6.5 hours today, but at least the weather was mild with little wind.

    A week or so ago, our company was looking for volunteers to take a one month layoff.
    My hand went up faster than a mexican hookers skirt (Not that I have experience with Mexican hookers you understand)
    just shooting for a good visual.

    So starting Jan 25 am taking 30 days off without pay. Well actually, they agreed to pay me a small no hit bone-us plus a small stipend for volunteering for the layoff.

    I knew I was going to take time off this winter anyway, so I have been planning/saving all summer for this. The two tiny bone-uses are well "a bone-us".

    WHA FREEKIN HOO I am outa here in a week and a half (for a month anyway)!!!
