Let me just say, I would never in a million years make a good pioneer. This weather is disgustingly cold and driving in it is a nightmare. I know I sound whiney but think I have good reason. At least the sun is shining today but even with help from above, the high will only be 5 degrees with a wind chill factor well below zero. The sun is certain to create driving problems for the night shift tonight. It'll work with the cars and salt to create just enough snow and ice melt that will immediately refreeze when the sun goes down again.
There isn't enough wool in my closet to deal with this cold.
