We need to get the cold air out of here. Bring some big trucks and I will give it to you all the cold air for Free.

-50 F - 45 C here today with the wind chill, about 5 minutes outside is enough good news is that it is supposed to subside in a couple of days.

I'm starting to doubt my career path as a HVAC repairman. Was on a rooftop today for a few minutes and decided that it was intolerable.

Oh well it could be worse at least everything is up and running and I'm home safe and sound.

Why would someone want their A/C fixed in -50? I would think it could have waited, unless it heated also.

Larry- most  often here in WI the rooftops handle both heating and cooling. ( you darn Texan ! )

 

Arti, I sure would not want to be on a rooftop service call today. Brrrrr.....

I wouldn't want to be on a roof or even outside during this cold snap. Finally got it up to 60 in the old shop, 22 outside.

He was on a roof, most likely in   - somthingteens , with the winds blowing, much like it is here in the eastern part of the state. No thanks either, but this is what we do.

its awful here too, no school buses( my kids are home) only joking roads are ice, last year their bus was in a crash thankfully no one was hurt, right now its -25 with wind chill -45 to -50 , no one should be out more than 5 min or risk severe frost bite, my furnace was out this morning (oh no) but i got it back up and running , a plugged ehaust pipe, ice had formed around it and restricted the air flow and a sensor in the furnace shut it down , i did however get some hot air coming off the wife complaining about the house being cold ( DUH) and i should know better and the ever asking question of what am i going to do so this doesn't happen again, my thoughts are i should be in sunny mexico, her in flordia ha ha ha !!!!!!

I'm feeling ya. I'm hoping this is the worst it gets this year, last year I had two calfs born in -5, its-13F now and I'm looking thru the bi-noculars and it sure looks like I'm gonna have to get down in the valley with some warm mollasses and water for one of my mommas.

We have days like that here too, but right now she is out breaking ice for the animals to drink while I came back in to warnm up after feeding in the outer pasture. I'm making her hot cocoa so maybe I can get her back out later to pull me outa the valley...
