    I Was wondering is there a point when you don't work if it's going to be too cold to be out working, i live in the Kansas City area and they say it's going to be 20 and 30 degree's outside!:(

    It must have been in the high 20s this morning when i first left the house (7am) (normally i dont work on sundays, but with the rain, snow, and bronchitis of the past 2 weeks, i had to play catch-up). There were flurries this morning, but it actually felt way colder when it got windy around noon, but the temp was up to 35-40 almost. The only thing that can stop me is snow or rain, temperature (unless above 110 (which it never gets)) can NOT be an obstacle if I am to keep up.
    BUT DOESNT IT SUCK?

    As long as I can feel my fingers, toes & ears I'm OK. If I'm numb, I'm done. I can't take the occasional, it hurts to breathe cold either. Normally what runs me indoors is the wind. I just can't take it. Cuts right through me.

    Windchill sux!!!

    We have very few of those days around here anymore :)
    I don't miss the cold days until it warms up and the bugs come out thicker:mad:

    -20°F at 3-4 am does get to me in about an hour. But 15 minutes in the truck, and I'm ready for another hour. Haven't found a lower limit in daylight hours yet, but days always warm up above zero here (usually).

    Hope this isn't a thread for just the southern guys. You fellas down there never get to play with the snow. LOL.
