    Well its clear to say that alot of us is going to get hit by this big storm over the next few days. I figured this would be a good place to share our pictures and stories. Its supposed to start about 6 pm tonight here. I hope everyone stays safe as we buckle down and take on mother nature.

    It has happened quite often for us this winter. Than the weathermen scramble for an excuse as to why we didn't get it. But, you never know what this weather is going to do. It changes so often. I would hate to be in charge of predicting this crazy weather.

    Hard to stay outside for very long in those cold temps. Hope you are bundled up good.

    We dont wear much just a pair of bibs and a parka. It hard to find good clothes since all our clothes have to be fire retardent. But we are out side for at least 2hrs at a time or longer

    2 hours is still a long time. It don't take much to get frost bite.

    No not at all you can get frostbite in 10 min on exposed skin we also have hoodies that cover most of our faces. But it a 2mill job we are doing right now. If every thing goes good it will take 30hrs
