We didn't get any calls until 7:00 pm so we're headed out to Geneva Road again tonight to start at 9:00. The call came through Strategic Staffing so it will be at the better rate. Forecast for tonight is lows near 20, but the hourly forecast doesn't show us getting that low until 6:00 am and by then we should be home and in bed.
We ran out to Walmart and picked up some hand warmers so our hands and feet should be be taken care of tonight. I'm debating whether to wear my ski mask instead of my beanie to try to keep my nose warm. I've been carrying the ski mask in the pocket of my snowsuit but haven't been uncomfortable enough to put it on, but it hasn't been as cold as tonight's forecast. Not sure how it will fit with my safety glasses -- or how they will fit with it on. I'll have to give it a try and see.
We talked with the foreman the other night when we were sent home because they were closing down the site for the night about taking a break when his guys take theirs and he agreed that would be OK. At least we can look forward to getting off our feet and into a warm car at least once during the shift. And we have a thermos of hot chocolate for nutrition, hydration, and warmth once we get to the car.
Better go get ready....
