    It's currently (4:16 p.m.) 54F twenty-something miles from the Canadian border. Tomorrow's low temperature is expected to be 66 degrees lower than that. :o

    I remember those rare Temp. fluctuations in my life. Tons of people get sick because of it. I never did get sick because I dressed in layers because I knew what the temperatures were going to do since I worked outside most of my life and watched the weather channel religiously.

    I did hate all the extra stuff I had to wear, but I got through those awful days.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?... Got TFM ?

    Did I type beyond your understanding of what an Outdoor Blue Collar worker goes through a few times a year ?

    I was simply commenting on the post above mine. How I stayed healthy and a lot of others ALWAYS got sick.

    A 66-degree temp. change. How would you dress for the day like that if you worked outside from 6:30 AM to 8:00 PM?

    It was 58 degrees (F) when we went to bed last night -- it is 18 degrees (F) as I type this and dropping. (and a week ago it was -18 degrees F in the morning).

    All the snow melted yesterday (except the plowed piles & in deep shade areas) -- now we have a fresh coating of sleety snow gunk.

    ^^^^^
    Yup, that's the worst time to drive and a lot of people don't know about black ice. A man passed me in the mountains and I knew there were patches of ice in the shady spots. Less than 5 min. later I drove past the man upside down in his little truck. he was spinning around slowly like a top on the shoulder. I looked at him and he at me. He was strapped in real good and upside down but when I saw his eyes looking at me the way he did, I knew he was ok. But his truck wasn't. I drove on for some reason.

    And it's (almost) always a big, evil pick-em-up truck or a big fancy (or small fancy) SUV, IME.
    The laws of physics still apply to them -- or, as our electrician put it: "Four wheel drive doesn't mean four-wheel stop".

    Patty Larkin has a wonderful song about her harrowing drive in a blizzard in a rented Chevy Chevette :)



    And trucks were sliding slideways like sons of b!tches
    They were putting on tire chains, rolling into ditches
    And I crawled on by, like God was throwing the switches
    For me and that train

    Man, I like her style! Thanks. ;)

    But what was the TRAIN she was talking about?
