Default "Snow" Powers

Couldn't resist taking & posting some winter pics on my day off.
Sure glad I'm not an oil man when the weather is like this (or a dairy farmer, truck driver, contractor, lumberman, fireman, etc)

I used to plow snow for the state Bill. Being retired now, so nice to just enjoy the simple beauty of it.

This picture brings back memories of the winters i had to go out into the oil field and start these hit and miss natural gas engines they did not have snow on them because i kept the engine houses in good shape to keep the weather off the engines they would not give me to much problems until the temps got down to 20 degrees and lower they would get pretty stiff but i had some tricks up my sleeves to warm them up some and then they would fire when i kicked the spokes and away they would go put put put BOOM and the smoke would fly out the big exhaust pipes be nice if i could rewind my life and go back and start over i enjoyed those days
