Fifteen below freezing is not T shirt weather under any circumstances, especially if you're working hard. Getting wet and slick with sweat that freezes is going to make you colder
Back in 1996 there was a pretty bad ice storm in Detroit that cut the power for like a week. It went from Fallout to Metro 2033 (Except bullets were more plentiful)
I remember me and my dad just sitting in the dark freezing house as the flashlight got dimmer and quoted the ending lines between Keith David and Kurt Russel from The Thing.
Yeah, it's not the badass BOOMER story IAP would tell, but short of killing a wendigo in a blizzard with my bare hands, there's no way I'm going to be able to compete with the hardships he choked to death, not unlike a Thugee cultist to a young Indian village girl.
After a couple weeks of relatively bone-chilling weather, it's been perfect for a few days, and working outside is actually really nice right now! Yay!
So, uh, enjoy your winter storms guys!
Don't worry, the 4000 degree heat in the summer will fuck me enough
It's not as bad here, but it's still pretty miserable. It was snowing for a little bit around 3 am this morning, but ever since 4 it's been pouring rain at about 34 degrees outside.
It was supposed to snow today but has shifted to rain instead so hopefully it stays that way. Looking to not be so bad near me anymore! Luckily, I won't be home during the storm itself so I should be fine leaching off of someone else's electric bill.
