    I just like Omer at the temp where I'm at and 3 degrees sucks the big one.

    3 below here and looking outside looks like a scene from the movie Fargo. Wish you were here.

    You can keep the sub zero temps, I'll keep the beautiful weather, women, and scenery. Even if I have to deal with the high cost of living and nut jobs.;)

    I imagine that means you are not looking for a job in the oil patch in North Dakota?

    MAKAVELI Well-Known Member

    Those jobs couldn't pay me enough to live out there. Besides, the oil industry isn't exactly stable at moment.

    Sub zero here tonight. I WANT them to try to say something to me about wearing a facemask tomorrow. Today it was 7 degrees not counting the windchill factor (10 mph sustained winds) and my face felt like it was going to fall off.

    Remember the good old days when the truck stayed running and warm? Darn you telematics!

    Why would Hockey Goalie attire keep you warm?

    I don't know. Clearing 2k a week sounds pretty nice.

    We've had wind chills in the -20 to -30 range for a few days now. center manager told us to wear what we needed to stay warm. I asked him if I could leave the truck running all day and he was not amused.

    looks like a great opprutunity for some construction companies.

    You would think, right? You got to ask yourself why housing and infrastructure hasn't boomed as well?

    Honestly mostly because all of the guys that would do those jobs are in the oil fields.

    The housing crisis really wouldn't be near as bad if it had not been for all the houses destroyed by the floods just as the boom started.

    All the more reason for me to stay in California. The economy is bouncing back, real estate coming back up, and unemployment going down. I don't need to clear 2k a week to be happy here. Would be nice but not necessary.
