Work after work

Had to work late because of a little snow storm today.We got about 10 or12 inches today. I just thought I would post a few PIC's of me cleaning the driveway so all in the warm weather could get a taste of winter in the Nort Woods. Here goes nothing hope they come through. Jim

Really don't want to make you feel too bad but this morning I had to make a big choice, do I put on long pants or shorts. Primarily I wanted to say "GO NINERS".

You haven't really lived until you have operated an auto repair shop in snow country. When it snows, you get up an hour early to dig out your own car. Then when you arrive at work you get to spend 2 to 4 hours digging out customer's cars and moving the cars around the lot so the snow plow can work the lot.

Now the best part: You get to go inside where it's warm.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention - While working under the cars inside, you are treated to a constant cold shower as the remaining snow and ice melts off the car above you.

Invigorating!!


Oh, one last thing: Go home and clean the roof.





No need to join a gym for excercise...................





Why else would anyone hug a cactus???

I just thought the PIC's would let you remember what you're missing. Oh did I mention that today it was 10 degrees for the high and suppose to be -12 tonight, no bugs though. Jim

I changed the transmission on my 73 Polara in the snow once... Many other times doing repairs on vehicles that Had to be done,,,,,, outside... Now I'm trying to figure if I want to change coil springs myself in my new unheated garage, (on the MH) , or find the $$ to pay to have it done... Slow season now in my buisness,, but it will be done before our next trip out west.... grrrrrrr
