Psyched myself up to be in the cold all day again today but the generator I am using and my compressor had other plans. I guess they feel they worked in the cold long enough yesterday.

Hell, I feel like +14 is balmy after looking at that. Sure glad I made the decision years ago to learn to be an indoor finish man instead of continuing down the path of framing/remodeling I was on.

Had a nice exterior trim job to start today, my buddy lives 10mins from the job and it took him over an hour to get there through the snow to hang drywall.

I'm an hour away without snow or traffic, I decided not to make the drive in today and work at home instead

8 here with -25 windchill. 5 foot drift along the north side of the house. The town I live in hasn't cleared the side roads in years so I hooked up the snow plow and cleared the road. Made a few bucks clearing driveways this morning as well. This weather finally gives me time to work on my website and work on my never ending honey-do list

Today in Edmonton isn't bad, -21. I was up in Athabasca yesterday and it was -28 and the sparkies had to shut off the power and therefore the furnace for 5 hours.

I don't mind the cold to much. Yesterday was -22 windchill making it -32 believe it or not I was pretty warm for most of the day. And was happy with my production for the most part.

How in the hell do y'all work outside in sub-zero conditions.

We were at 12 degrees Fahrenheit a few mornings ago, so I let the guys hang around the shop until the temp got to about 25. They still complained, lol.

We're either manly, desperate, or stupid... haven't quite figured that out yet.
