I guess summer is over, had to work in the snow today
I was totally unprepared today when I went up in the mountains in sunny Southern California. I was wearing only a hoodie and slip-on shoes. Not only did my feet get soaked but I got hit in the head with a large icicle leaving a pretty good bump. Luckily I had my hard hat with me, because a whole lot more icicles fell on me before I was done.
The cold wet feet thing was too much though. I usually always keep steel toed boots in the truck and only wear them when I need them like when rattlesnakes are out, working with heavy materials and snow. I pulled them out yesterday to make room for other stuff and forgot to put them back in this morning
Anyway each winter it seems to get harder and harder to work in the cold. I used to hate the heat and loved the cold, but now it's the other way around.
Iím a die hard DIY guy. Donít tell me to hire someone for what I can do myself.
