My Buddy Grog up North of me sent me a birthday present too that just got here today and not only am I flabbergasted but the timing was excellent!
A brand new set of Carhartt Insulated Bib Overalls!
He said he has a set of insulated coveralls and these were too long in the leg so he sent them to me!
Thank You Man!
These things are the shit!
Just perfect timing because it’s supposed to get below freezing and stay there for a few days.
Of course it’s nothing like some of the rest of you are trying to endure,another Internet buddy up in Canada sent me a picture of his phone the other day and the temp display was -42 degrees.
I honestly don’t know how people live in that kind of climate, I couldn’t do it.
Being acclimated to the Pacific Northwest, it is unusual for it to get down below freezing and stay there where I am at even if it’s only in the mid 20’s and that is plenty cold enough for me.
That would be downright balmy if it had been down to 40 below I’m sure but my arthritic and busted up fingers can’t take that shit.
Not to mention I am a skinny old fart.
The cold cuts right to the bone where I am concerned and when my hands get cold anymore it feels like someone is shoving huge needles sideways through the joints in my fingers.
Theses new overalls will help keep me nice and toasty. I also go down to Harbor Freight in late Fall and buy a couple of bags of these puppies,
I put those on and then cram on a pair of leather work gloves over the top.
Works pretty good.
The one saving grace about the timing of this cold snap is that today is my Friday and that shit isn’t supposed to hit until about the time I get off work and come home.
Hopefully there won’t be any need for me to venture out in that cold ass shit in the first place.
If the little heater in the garage can keep up then I am in Fat City.
If not then I am just going to sit here on my ass and wait it out.
