Frozen solid

RigCrewLast week The Associated Press called over and asked if we had photos of drilling rig crews in the freezing cold. Naturally, the answer was no and even more naturally, I embarked on a journey into 10-below temperatures (about 30-below or colder with wind chill) and hopped up on a rig.

It was cold but I’ve already reached this point where the sub-zero temperatures feel like the 30s. It must be because it’s my second winter in North Dakota or that I finally broke down and bought more warm gear. Either way, it took a few hours to really feel the cold up there.

In this part of the country, I have about four or five more months of this. Good thing I’m used to it and cloudy, dreary days.
