Poor-Poor me. My crew has been up in Devils Lake, North Dakota (where the only stories that leave the town are of big fish and bitter cold). Yesterday I had to stand on a flatbed semi trailer directing a back-hoe that was unloading reels of 2" interduct for the start this springs Phase 2 of Devils Lake'* Fiber To The Home project. Windchills were -45*F when we started and by the time we finished it was -55*F windchill factor.
So since the big boss was running the back hoe (reason for using the back-hoe was because the forklift wouldn't start -turned out the in-line fuel filter was plugged) he decided to shut the job site down until Monday so I got to come home last night -WOO-HOO!!!! A little short on hours this week though -26 hrs.
Forecast for today in Devils Lake, ND -30F with windchills exceeding -80*F.
