Work begins for me in about 8 hours when the alarm sounds at about 1 AM. Three miserable days in the cold - 13 or 14 hours each.
I move semi-trailers on lot [spotter, yard dog whatever you want to call it] for a living. Not a bad job in the summer really. But the winter stinks big time. Go to work 7 hours before the sun comes up and get done about the time it sets. Work in slush and snow and ice. Expected to do as much on a December snow-day as on a May spring day.
Sorry to rant. I just am beginning to hate winters so much. Maybe I am tired of my job? Too damn old to move on though.
Sorry to rant and rave - just venting. Pays the bills.
