Seriously I don't know how you guys could work all day up north
Do you have a too cold today extra charge
Not really, I just have a too cold aint going to work day, like today. I have to keep the van in my insulated garage, but no heat. I also have to warm up the van for almost a half hour to warm up all my tools and fitting, pipe, etc. Chit don't work when it's 30 below. I really don't dress any warmer, just a light jacket and hat. I'm in and out of homes quick. Just sucks running in and out to get extra parts in my short sleeve shirt while I'm working and sweating, got to do if fast . Today I could throw a hot glass of water up in the air and it would vaporize instantly. Cool stuff really.
i made the mistake years ago in jackson hole wyoming -40 about not drying your hair after showering and going outside
we had 8 busses there for a week of skiing from calif. it was so cold that the busses batteries were splitting. they finally just let the busses idle all night long after that. even the air brakes needed to be thawed with a road flare.
this was the same trip that the fountains in vegas froze over. la to vegas to salt lake to jackson hole for the week and then back. 27 hours by charted bus including the dinner and breakfast stops with high school and college kids. 2 years in a row as a chaperon.
It was a freely made choice that free Americans made.
(The majority of the population couldn't be persuaded to learn something new.)
Australia thought the same when we changed all those years ago especially we the older ones lme included but the younger generations know nothing else and I find it easyer I notice all the movies made in the US the actors speak in metric why not emperial it must be difficult for your exporters and industry having to convert to metric to deal with the rest of the world.
