    Its not that I don't like snow...I have never seen snow EVER. The only snow I have ever seen is that fake stuff. You know the ice that gets chopped up and thrown from a hose from a truck into a field? Of course that was when I was alot younger.

    I have never seen snow fall, but I did see old snow in Flagstaff Arizona. I thought it was going to be all nice a fluffy, and i jumped into it ass first...it really hurt. No one ever told me that old snow would harden and turn into ice. hehe, I guess that is what you get for being born and raised in a tropical climate! hehe:laugh:

    I had a pretty cold job about 30yr ago. I worked night shift (10pm-10am) maintanence at a ski resort. We pumped water from a river up the slopes for the snow machines. One night a valve broke in a connections pit, and it filled waist high with water. It was well below freezing and we were making snow. I had to climb into the pit and fix the valve. When I got out I could only take a few steps before my (thoroughly soaked) insulated coveralls froze solid from the waist down. I had a big, two-fisted screwdriver that I beat on my knees enough to break the ice enough so I could get on my ATV and get back to the maint. shack. Another time I had to climb a chair lift tower in a blizzard to fix a cable that jumped off. Couldn't stay up there more than 10 min at a time with the wind packing snow in my ears and nose. I would stay up until my hands couldn't hold the wrench anymore. When I'd drop the wrench, it was time to climb down and warm up. All my drinking buddies back then used to piss me off by calling me "snowman" all of the time because of my job.
