Buuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Wow, it's only 43 Degrees (feels like 39 deg.) this morning, coldest morning of the fall so far. It feels really weird to be chilly.

I know you guy's in Minnesota are thinking "What a pansy!" but you weren't riding your jetski in 84 degree water just last week either. It's gotten cold here and in a hurry.

With the drought we had this summer and now the quick way it's gone cold, I hope all the leaves drop right off all the trees all at once. One big leaf cleanup, and were done for the year. :blob4:

We are jealous of those still riding the jetskis!

Ive been affected by the cold too, wore the winter gloves yesterday. The only positive is no cooler needed for the lunchs. And not sweating a gallon is also nice when the day ends. I like to wear ear muff hearing protection vs. ear plugs.

As I left the shop today I felt sorry for all of the people who don't have a place to park the trucks inside. I saw a lot of window scraping. It was quite cold for me to when I had to finally get out of the truck and actually do something!

Hummm, right now my thermometer says its 91 degrees outside, thats a nice day here in Texas. Hot is when its around 110 degrees, and anything below 80 is frigid. And its really humid out here to!
