You know it is cold out if your Lips stick to the window when you are giving kisses to the girls inside at the aerobics class! True Story!! Have no idea who it would have been!

When you don't get passed the first vowel in your name as you "mark" your territory in snow.

Opened the cooler to get something to drink before hitting the road again and everything in it had frozen..
I got a better one. I stayed in the terminal yard in Gary Indiana one night when I drove for Swift, had a coil to deliver at Arcilor Mitel a few miles away the next morning. Left my 08 Frieghtliner running, flipped cruise to set to over ride the auto shutdown system, turned on the deisel fueled heater under the bunk and climbed into bed. Outside temp was zero, the term is next to the Gary airport, not far from Lake Michigan.

Went to sleep and slept like a baby til 3 AM. Woke up freezing and realized within a second the truck wasnt running. It had developed an issue with the D.P.F. and the computer went into engine protect mode and triggered a shutdown. It was only 6 degrees in the sleeper berth when I woke up. Btw I sleep in my boxers. No matter what I did it wouldnt stay running. The shop didnt open back up till 6 am so I had to deal with it till then. I got out my electric fleece blanket and wool blanket in addition to the cotton comforter that was already on my bunk. I was able to stay warm enough to get some sleep til 6 am. I ended up driving a loaner truck that morning to deliver my load.

a 16 gallon beer keg freezes solid in the trunk of your car...happened about a dozen years ago to us on new years eve.

around here, you know it's getting cool when all the out of state construction workers start telling you "your crazy to work in this" & start leaving. it usually gets cold a couple months after that
All I've had today is like 6 gummi bears & some scotch
