and still counting), we're quite comfortable -- about 15'C/60'F. Quite a nice change from my trip to Calgary, Canada two weeks ago where it was about -20'F.
Let me know if can do anything for you at this end.

it i would rather be lucky than good any day of the week but my thinks that luck is something the recruiting gods decide to bestow on us after kicking the crap out of us , poisoning the well, blowing up the camp and shooting the ones trying to hide in the bushes.
By the way folks, Amy has had 52 placements since she took this new job so i think she earned that luck.. When you punch the card that many times one should get a "free One". Talk about a frequent flyer.…
in and race from March to October. I train at least twice a week and race at least once a month. On top of my own team, I also race with other teams as well.
3) Dodgeball - I play dodgeball 20 weeks a year.
4) Soccer - Indoor during the winter and outdoor during the summer
5) Guitar - don't claim to be an expert, I play when I have time
6)Video Game - When the weather is crappy and night is long, Call of duty is my friend.
7) Read - I read when I am tired and when I am injured. …
in different unions and winters are hard for all of them but they get by on unemployment. The automotive industry union has to be the way it is because it's not like they have a lot of options when work runs dry. It's not like there's another car manufacturing plant across the street that has a need for a machinist or something. They would have to go out of town or out of state to get a job to keep working in their trade. These people know their worth. If they didn't have the job bank then how many weeks out of the year would they have no income? How would they survive? It's a necessary part of their union.…
seekers. I would say most keep their applications open all year, but do most of their true review of applications between November and May. Those that have year-round or winter operations, in addition to the busy summer season, utilize their current teams to fill jobs, or as you say above they have their "ideal applicants short listed." It's a wild thing to watch. From no employees or very few to thousands in a week or two come season start. Nice work if you can get it. : )

or visibility, and crazy drivers who seemed unaffected by these conditions. I was more fortunate than several drivers I passed to have arrived home safely with my vehicle and sanity intact.
I have heard stories from friends in London who are facing bitter cold and severe winter weather, as well as those in the Midwest who recently received a lovely gift of two feet of snow and, of course, all over winter is making itself known. That same winter that arrives each year yet somehow we forget and many of us are ill-prepared for the havoc it inevitably wreaks and the change it evokes in our daily lives, at least until spring.
It was just three or four weeks ago, that my own town had record-breaking high temperatures that everyone complained about, too. We face weather with uncertainty because we must - we cannot predict what it will toss our way. The only thing we can do is try to be prepared for, well.., anything. With a little preparation, we can have a bit more confidence to face what we need to face.
But..., there's also something to be said for knowing when to walk away. Knowing when to come in out of the rain, knowing when to concede to the weather and knowing when it's time to drive more safely and look out for others.
I am sure you can see where I could take this and how I would twist in a metaphor but I will leave it with these...
Better safe than sorry.
Know when to fold 'em.
You get the picture...
