After a very moderate October, we are finally starting to get the "dry cold" that many prefer. I heard many comments like "It's about time we got some decent weather" this morning at the coffee place. It's not that everyone likes the cold but many people, me included, don't care for the wet snow that we have been getting the last couple of storms.
There was a temperature inversion this morning as it was only about 0°F at our home but much colder as you headed toward town and lower elevations. Today was one of those days when I should have worn a fleece liner over the heated liner as I was feeling the cold on my chest by the time I got home. A lot of air gets by the Ural windshield. I had other errands to run this morning that needed the truck so I dropped the plow in front of the garage and headed to get groceries... lots of groceries. Tomorrow evening and Saturday morning I will be preparing snacks and breakfast for around 150 people. Hopefully I guessed right on the quantities.
About an hour after my last post where I mentioned that I had just received an email from Aerostitch with a tracking number, FedEx dropped a box off at our door. Pretty speedy shipping, eh? The reality is that they had mentioned last week that it should be shipped by the end of the week. For all of the good things about Aerostitch, communication doesn't seem to be one of their strengths.
