    Wisconsin boys better get out the long johns

    It's gonna be COLD next week! I got to go stock up on parts again, and get a couple more pair of long underpants, and maybe even break down and get some insulated overalls. I hope I get a bunch of emergency late night calls so I can rake in that OT!

    Out company has already told all the service dept to be ready. I'm not even supposed to leave the office, I'm supposed to remote in and try to handle the issues I can via remote on the control systems.

    Bundle up, have the firewood ready and find someone to warm the bed up for you prior to getting in!

    Gonna be in the single digits here by the end of the week too.
    I routinely wear long johns in the winter, even if I am working inside most of the time.
    But I am getting old so.....

    Thinking about getting a box of those instant heat packets to keep a couple in my pockets while working on the roofs. Crack one and shove my fingers in my pocket to thaw them out. I have a hard time keeping my gloves on, they get in the way too much. But then when your fingers freeze and you put them back in your glove, it seems to take even longer to warm up

    I got my Under Armor Cold Gear laid out to put on first thing in the morning.

    Apparently my crew doesn't want to set units on the roof this week

    Good thing we have a lot of work in the building with temp. heat.
