RANT: Heat out

Walk in from vacation in vegas, and the bat cave has no heat or hot water.



Perhaps it was lonely, and like misbehaving pet, decided to punish me for my absence.


This is not the coldest I’ve ever been.

USAF Survival School someplace in the pacific northwest Idaho Washington border. Not snowing; that would have been warmer. Wet from rain on the hour as demanded by the trainers; it was survival school. Temperature was 100 below, or felt that way. And, we weren’t allowed to hunker down, but had to move 5 miles a day. Doesn’t sound like a lot, but it was through what they called a “slash forrest”. Every other tree was over on its side. Not cut, but blown. Did I mention the wind? Yeah, it too felt like 100 mph. The phrase “witch’s *** in a brass *** in the middle of January” comes to mind. 

That was cold.

This is merely annoying.

Imagine what TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The World As We Know It) will be like.
