we ended up with about 8 inches, but the sleet pushed it down to a really heavy 5 inches on top of about an inch of ice already there. I work midnight tonight and I'll be the guy making the rounds to 34 buildings and hangars on my Navy base.
It is dropping below freezing right now, gonna be in the low 20s when I start making rounds - should be a slick night ahead.
I got a promotion awhile back, took a long time to get it official (typical military SNAFU paperwork) and we now have more operators than we do boiler workers (my old job) so I'm standing in as worker until we fill my old billet. So I get a great promotion and still end up doing the same job - at least I'm making the bigger bucks for it.
the 34 buildings are over s 18 mile route, I'm out of the truck more than in it, and it takes about 2.5 hours to make the rounds. I'll be on my butt at least twice, that's a given - hopefully the ice will break my fall - lol.
