North Dakota Tough


They're in the middle of a tropical heat wave in North Dakota this week; the high today is going to be 40 f. Normally the average low in January is 4, without the zero, and the high is 24. Shit.


My hard hat is off to you hands up there; you are some tough sumbitches and have my respect. Period.


You'd have to drag me put of my pickup, feet first, my hands clinched to the steering wheel, to get me to work on those elevated rig floors in the photo. In a north wind there is NO amount of clothes to make that shit warm. I could layer up like Wolfcamp benches in the Permian Basin and still be freezing my Texas ass off.


If you feel the need to call me a wuss, please...carry on. I am perfectly fine with that.
