Talking Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

went with the 3L soda bottle idea yesterday... was all of 4F when i left the house at bout 3pm... wind gusts between 25-30mph... made the 5 mile trip over to home depot for a job interview, and could still feel my fingers when i got there!
was supposed to take a 26m road trip (one way) today, but when it was still only 0F at noon, i decided i'd wait till tomorrow when it's supposed to be at least in the 20's... (snow showers)

Best of luck with the interview!! I'm starting my 8th year wearing the apron. My Sis has been with 'em 23 years. Lots of opportunity there if you look in the right places.
