Yeah...Olde Timer...I took a peek at the forcasted temps here on the Chesapeake Bay of Olde Virginia. It is forcasted to be in he high 20 tonight. Glad I have two hooded coats and thinsulate gloves. Those Thinsulate gloves are very nice and I have bought extra pairs and stored them in my Several BOBs.
This must have been a regular bill of fare temperature wise up in Montanna!!
That Year I spent up in Iceland made me grateful for those thick heavy winter Parkas we were issued ..the ones with the fur lining in the hoods. Stopped the wind nicely too.
That was the first time and place where if you stuck your hands in your pockets and the snowy wind was blowing...you would find yourself with snow in your pockets pushing out your hands when you walked. I also found out what what for were those heavy duty piping type hand rails. So that you did not walk off or get blown off the sidewalks and get lost in the heavy blizzard like windy snows. You could not see far when it got that bad too.
Those had to be a tough people...those Icelanders...to survive those winters. The natives up north in Montana up into Canada and Alaska too.
Also glad to be working now days in a shop instead of down in the bottoms of the Dry Docks as in the olde days. I can still do it but I'll gladly leave that to the younger bucks. No building Rome here in a day.
Gotta shove off olde Timer,
