My Frozen Sunburn
Yep, you read that title right. The weather here is so crazy. Today I woke up at 4 am almost froze to death. I guess I should have been, the house heater has not been turned on yet and it was a whopping 34 degrees outside. That is 2 degrees shy of making soft water hard. There was frost warnings posted on the TV weather forecast and it would not surprise me if some places North and West of me actually hit the freezing mark.
So I head into work, waiting impatiently for the heater to get high enough to warm me up. Well I get sent on a boat that is floating in the harbor. It's an older yacht, 4 years old or so, called the Acadia which hit a rogue wave in heavy seas and bent the bow rail. Anyway I am out there all day straightening the mess out. Now the temp hits 76 degrees, there is a nice warm breeze coming off the water and I get a serious sunburn. You can even see the burn pattern around my sunglasses!
So it sounds ironic, but today I had a frozen sunburn!!
(Here is a pic of that boat I was working on for the yachters on here)
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
