It's tolerable, and I dress accordingly. New job might be interesting though, I start Jan 2 with the City of Pierre Water Department.
Good luck with the new job Leonard! I have heard that Pierre public works is a bit better to work for than Rapid City. I'm a wastewater tech for 14 years now in Rapid City. Mainly repair broken and worn out infrastructure at the plant east of town. We both have to deal with frozen water as part of our jobs and it ain't no fun sometimes! I have worked outside in the winter darn near all my working life so I don't go play in it in my off time! Carhartt's went on last week and no end in sight to take 'em off!
