    Well I've been up here in North Dakota for about two months now and I'm finally getting a taste of what cold really is. The high today was negative 20, with 20-30 mph winds. Luckily I only had to work a half day. Tonight its supposed to get down to negative 30 with a wind chill of around negative 60 and more of the same tomorrow... I don't think I've ever missed Texas so much.

    Most people head south for the winter :laughing:


    Why did you move there?

    Haha yeah the guy that hired me said alot of people had just left to go home for the winter.. but I came here for a job.. I've been dating my old lady for about 12 years now on and off and want to ask her to marry me but I couldn't let myself do that knowing I couldn't take care of her with the job I had back home. So i got an opportunity to come up here and get some experience and make some money and I jumped on it.

    I have lived in MN on and off over the years. I know those winters and don't miss them.

    I was in Greeley, CO for three weeks before Christmas. That first week the high was -5º (during the day) and we work outside.

    I feel for you but what are you gonna do?

    I've got a good friend that lives in Rapid City SD who is always trying to get me to move up there, when I get the urge to move there I just check out their weather forecast in the winter........no way!

    That wind makes all the difference in the world. 15-20 degrees with sunshine and no wind isn't bad. Gun metal grey sky and 30 mph wind and it's miserable.

    Stay warm up there! My part of the midwest I left behind has a forecast of -19 (air temp) tonight!

    I'll send you these to remind you of the Southland.

    I'm not sure you could pay me enough to live in -60 wind chill unless I got to dress like an astronaut. If this is your stepping stone to a better life for you and your girl, my hats off to you. But I will say your definition of better is way different than mine.
