    Flash 55, Take 21

    The cold leaped out and bit her flesh as she jumped out of the work truck. It was another day of working in the bitter cold.

    She knew when she signed up for this job that it would be tough, but she hadn't considered frigid Northern temperatures.

    The only consolation was all the construction workers.

    I'm working outside again today for the 3rd day in a row. The wind chill is 1 degree right now and not supposed to get much better. The wind is howling 25-30 mph. Burrr.... We are working at a hospital and they are moving the emergency room for the 3rd and final time. Our job is to make sure that the public can find help easily.

    I swear that I saw Paul Bunyan yesterday. He was built like a shit brick house. He wasn't too burly, just big. I have to admit to being slightly turned on by his physical prowess. So, today won't be all bad.

    Ah yes, well then there's the summer when they will have to remove shirts in order to cool off! Won't that be fun? So save some of that work for the hotter weather!

    Don't the construction workers have any 55 gallon drums lit so they can warm themselves from time to time. I think you need to go join them.

    I feel for you. Today the temp is bad enough but add that wind... wowee it is cold. I hope you survive today and don't have to work much over the weekend. It is going to be insane.

    G-Man~ I like my term better. I like to shit bricks, hehe!

    Lime~ Today was a good day despite the cold ;)

    Pissy~ That's funny because I've always said it that way. How blonde am I?

    Sal~ Where's Babe?

    S~ Woo hoo for warmer weather!!!

    Barman~ I've yet to see anyone with a 55 gallon drum lit. I guess they just go into the hospital to get warm.

    Akelamalu~ I have no idea but I'm glad they are!

    FlyinFox~ I used to easily be able to handle the cold when I weighed a lot more.
