I'm not used to working in the cold...

I'm not used to working in the cold...  After working outside most of the day today, that is becoming quite obvious :)  It's been between 23°F and 38°F all day today.  For part of the late morning it was sunny, and when that lovely fusion-powered orb was showing, I was plenty warm.  When I was shoveling this morning, I was also warm.  But most of the day I've been using my tractor's backhoe to dig trenches – and the wind is blowing, and the sun is hiding behind clouds, and I got cold!  I've had to retreat to the warmth of the house on several occasions, to allow my fingers and toes to regain feeling.  As I type this, my feet still feel like frozen blocks of ice, though my fingers seem to be functioning ok.

And it's not even winter yet!

Yikes!  I need to find some warm winter wear, that's for sure...
