It sux at work. We have all kinds of things freezing up, and have no choice but to go work on them. Spent most of my 10 hr day on top of a 100' fly ash tank trying to free up the vent valves and associated equipment. Finally got it going around 5pm today.

Dennis, all over the state in my 6 years. Did a lot around Perry and on NW like Jet/Nash area. Drilled one well about this time of year by Ponca City and got snow in at the rig by 14" snow storm and was stuck there for almost a week. The other crews couldn't come in and we couldn't go home. Toolpusher hired a dozer to grade the road into town so we could get food at least. Talk about a fat check, 24 hrs a day for 6 days!!!!

-70 just ain't right!!

I'll bet that was a heck of a paycheck :eek:
Yeah the -70 sucked, but with the wind chill it was worse. We were issued full artic gear to get from the barracks, to operations. About 100 yds. The 4th of July and two days after it got to a balmy 34 degrees. I will say this,the US Army took care of us while up there. Fresh steaks three times a week, and all the trimmings. First run movies every night on a 16 MM projector with a panavision adaptor.Great duty except for being away from the family for 13 months. My first son was 2 weeks old when I had to report for duty.

Went duck hunting to day ;D . Had a great day Honcho and myself limited out. But the lake was still frozen took about an hour to break an opening about 20x5 ft. Then had to walked out or lowed crawled ( thank you combat arms to teach me a proper low crawl ) to retreive the birds. It was a little scary walking on ice and hearing it crack. So like the good retreiving dog that i am i went so Honcho can be safe and dry. ;)
