It wasn't in the negatives all day today and it was actually bearable.

I couldn't do what you do. I'd freeze. I'm glad you're warmer this morning though.

The high was 5º today and we had a few inches of snow. I, however, didn't even poke my nose outside today, so I'm pretty content. (My son-in-law, though, delivered his rural mail route today. I worried about him on the roads, 1 of which was bad

Well, the USPS did better than UPS, apparently. My daughter was still waiting for a truck to get up the hill with her package, while her husband made it OK on the same road. Maybe UPS should have handed off to USPS.

Better than that. I've been hanging out at the house. Turned the heat on since it's going to be in the 30's tonight.

Yeah. Just the one that was inside the practice field. They have two others that are usually on the sidewalk on Glenna Goodacre on the south side of the field. I was there from about 6 to 7:30.

They use this lift to film the practice of the local college football team. They were up there about 2 hrs before they tried to come down and the lift wouldn't work. They were there another 30-45 minutes until the fire department got them

Down with a ladder truck. I bet those college kids were pretty cold, up in the air with a 10 to 15 mph wind and the temp at around 21 to 22 degrees. Finally got the lift lowered and will order parts to fix tomorrow, but for now, I'm gonna

That's pretty bad, but hey, at least they weren't on the World Trade Center scaffolding that tipped more than 45º today near the 68th floor. Those guys had to be rescued through 3 layers of glass. They were probably a little warmer, though.

Yeah, I read about that after I got home. I didn't like having to go up about 30' in another lift to release a stuck valve to lower this one. No way would I be in one of those window washers rigs on a skyscraper!
