You Think It’s Cold

If you think that your commute to work, or other regular tasks have been difficult over this time, imagine if you were working outside. On a roof. Carrying shingles.

I asked if I could take a few photos and they said yes, not sure why I would want to.

I say, “Way to work it, gentlemen!”

I can’t imagine how good that end of day cup of something warm feels when you’re done.

Keep warm, all. And consider the crossing guards, mail carriers, construction workers, garbage and recycling collectors and other folks who have been out in that cold getting things done.

May the rest of the winter be more forgiving.
