I remember fusion splicing single-mode back in my younger years!
I don't remember seeing anyone while driving past Snag that cared how cold it is... It's a special sort that live north of us here on the coast. I still think Tok is the coldest place in KL7.
I did not mind low temps until about 6 years ago. It's a struggle now. I'm getting old, I guess.
I have a few years to go before retirement, but I already have a warm place to spend my retirement winters. Family will keep me here until Jan 1. I'll be gone after that, until March 31, at least.
Yeah kind of explains why I moved away from Ontario myself. Winters are just too long.
Yes, that's the thing. Give me a day or two at -40, not a problem, but 3/4/5 months at -22 is too much. Oh... and the wind?
Leave home for work at 'night'. Return home from work at 'night'. Not convinced? No windows in the workplace. Do I need to draw it? We actually had 'sun' lights in the office at one point.
I know there are worse places. I don't envy the residents.
Yeah I know exactly what you mean, I lived it myself for a long time.
Things are a little different here. This photo was taken the other day.
That was uncalled-for.
I know, but you wouldn't have believed me if I told you, so I had to have actual proof right?
Actually, I tormented my sister living in Ontario with that photo. She's considering moving to Arizona in the near future, so I just wanted to remind her before she forgets.
I live a mile from Ontario and it is cold enough here.
Yeah, I remember driving over that narrow Grand Island bridge in the middle of a snow storm before.
And when I say "snow" it's not measured in inches, it's measured in feet!
