Why I enjoy my Drive or Job

Winter is not so bad. The view is nice and so is the drive. After several months driving on this you get used to it and it is pleasent to do. My view all most home and I get paid for this. I could sure think of a few other jobs I would not want to do in the winter. Nice hot cup of coffie to sip and the radio on my station. It will be all muddy for a week in a few months then it will green up again and get hot. Making winter not so bad. Mark H.

I envy you for those kind of moments everyday. That much extreme weather is like a visit to the city for me. A nice place to visit but I don't think I could live there. My old bones hurt too much.

Good Morning Mark, That scene reminds me of when I was a boy. We didn't get nearly as much snow in Tn. as they did further north. But, whenever we did, we were as jubilent as children could get. All my school chums would get together and sleigh ride down the steep hill near my house until our faces turned a bright red and our lips turned blue. usually, we would go into the house for hot choculate and cookies while we warmed up before the wood burning, (are you ready for this)?, heatrola. (Just an in-word for the time that described a wood burning heating stove). Often times we would take our shoes off and our wet sock would steam like a tea kettle.
Ahhhhhhhh.....blessed are the memories. HAGL gfp

I get to warm up the toes once in a while by the wood stove. It is a nice place to leave the boots to warm up befor putting them on to go outside. Mark H.

Couldn't agree more, Mark. The views and scenery winter provides is absolutely spectacular. I love any seat time in my 8N, but it makes pushing the white stuff around almost tolerable while it is -5 out.

Yikes! When it gets that bad here, we just tend to stay home and hibernate.
