Yeah I'm up in Okoboji, and it was a cool -5 F this morning on the way to work... couldn't really see much as the inside of the wind shield was frosted and I didn't have time to warm the car up, just bundle up and go. It just makes the drive a little more interesting.

till 2am. Last 3rd of my day is mostly outside. I can deal with it as long as the wind isn't blowing. And it doesn't take much of a breeze at 0 degrees.

Why would anyone ever think it's a good idea to go to the South Pole?

Since I fried my hand, I haven't been going out, because the cuff would ride right where I burned it... Got plenty I need to be doing, but isn't happening until it heals enough I don't have to worry about getting it infected. After being out in it enough, you get conditioned to it... Doesn't mean we have to like it though. I guess I got used to the South Dakota winters...

-5 when I punched out this morning - global warming, my butt! It's not even winter yet!

And since I'm ranting, someone stole my coffee tonight. What kinda idiot drinks a guys 1/2 empty cup of coffee?! For some reason that's still really got my goat.

probably cause it's set just slightly rich, and the colder air is denser which will cause it to lean out just a touch.
