81 & Snowy
Quote this message in a reply
Well, ok, not really, but close!

It was 81 last week, and has been above average temp wise about 3 quarters of the winter, so, go figure, we're getting 4" to 8" of snow...on the first day of spring!

WTF?!?!?!

Whiner! Chuckle

Back in 94 I had gotten up for work at 3:00 am to drive to a stone job down in Findlay about 100 miles SW of Cleveland. It was April 23rd and there was 24" of snow on the ground and still snowing heavily. I made it into work before 7:00 am!

We're getting an inch or less on Sunday! NA, NA, NA, NA NA!!!!

That's called WORK ETHIC Yes When you're in the trades and a wall has to go up or you're managing a crew of guys, the contractor doesn't give two shits about snow, rain, or even a typhoon for that matter. Time is money, and the schedule must be met. Not to generalize, but that's why your generation was known for their toughness. Now imagine some 22 year old kid that pecks away on a keyboard all day. He sees a few flakes flying and he calls out sick.

I was never in the trades, but I've been working since I was 18. Strictly commission. If my ass isn't at work, and selling, I don't eat!

I admire work ethic, whether someone pushes a broom, or is the CEO of a fortune 500 company.

Those were the days, Ed. We did what we had to do and thought it was the only way or the right thing - these days are way different.
I can't get my head to really believe we will get a huge snow storm - what a bunch of crap.....
