Wow, you did get it. Here around Richmond about 3 inches or so.

My wife is in Thailand at the moment, complaining about the 50 degree F night temperature (no heating at the house). I have to send her some knee socks. But her sister is dressed up like Nanook of the North with quilted jacket and other layers, and that's underneath a thick quilt.

I am having a laugh about a bit of snow called a "bomb cyclone" The media will do absolutely anything to promote fear in the population and promote their greenie agenda.

I would like to get a better explanation of the tail pole, sort of a new innovation on your machines. I also note a pile of hoses behind the pole, not sure why, unless the pole is designed to hinge when hoisting it up and thus the slack hoses allow that. but the original path on an Isacson blade setup would not interfere with the pole.

Joey, I like your welding cable extentions.
How long has the mandatory shutdown been in effect?

I don't recall anything like that when I was still working for Saskenergy 10 years ago.

My job was pretty much all outdoors too, and I can recall all too well working in -40C weather on underground leaks and wishing there was such a requirement, although for something like a gas leak, such a requirement would likely get ignored.

Our coldest night here lately would have had Joey feeling right at home; -38C/-36F and our wind chill was -48C/-54.4F. This week-and-a half cold spell has been the longest and coldest around here for quite a few years, and I hope we don't have another for a lot more years.

I cannot imagine living under those conditions.
I wouldn't live where I do if it wasn't "home"

The mandatory bit is likely a corporate deal. Or, it could be an industry thing. I know there is no pipeline welding in temps below -30 due to chilling of the welds or some such.

We have to follow federal OH&S guidelines which is no outside work at -50C with wind chill. I have a chart somewhere that shows the allowable "outside rotation" work schedule with warm up breaks between. The work we typically do is not life threatening or essential service, so the work rotation applies. If it were one of those, the work schedule goes out the window.

Having said that, most of us will push it and continue working through the cold. Since we also tend to work alone, you have to be aware of your situation and condition since you have no partner or buddy to pull you from your bucket when you enter the second stage of hypothermia.

The pushers of rules love to force employees into these rules for liability reasons and insurance purposes.
