Was 48 at the house this morning before dawn. Made for a brisk drive into work with the top down. That stuff on your car in Kasilof just isn't right.
Your life is so tough.................do you even own more than a light jacket :doh: :P

Wore the leather Navy flight jacket from my deceased brother in law today. (He trained SEALS). I looked sharp, and warm.

That'd be a bit too warm at 48 degrees......... Need more like windbreaker at that temp :D or just a sweater....

48°! ? 8O I would need a long sleeve shirt, long pants, heavy winter coat, a warm hat that covers my ears and gloves! It 's 68° in the office of the warehouse and I am freezing! I may even turn the heater on! Brrrrr!

68? :doh: Heck that's shorts and tanktop weather! Might even break out the sandals at 68.

Supposed to be a high of mid 50's today and I wake up to a head cold and congestion in my chest :x
No way I'm going to try and wear a respirator and I had such high hopes for today. Guess it's house stuff and replacing the door handle on my Avalanche.

Been 0-10f here all week. Dug out the beaver hat and heavy mittens for driving the 4wheeler to work. Still just sweatshirt and heavy windbreaker though, I think my winter coat is in a tote in the shed somewhere. Layers are nicer anyways as we often have to open the hangar door at work.
