Graveyard……

Bzzt Bzzt Bzzt…. wha? it’s 10 o’clock?   ALREADY?  &%$#.  Five minutes later the cell phone plays a merry little jingle.  OK now it’s time to get out of bed.  It’s OhDark pm, and time for a Snowcat operator to start the day.  S&%$, shower, shave, pull on some clothes, and out to the truck.  Oh goody, the thermometer says it’s only 32º, just cold enough to freeze.  This could be fun, or not.

1130pm clock in,  eat something, dish out a ration of &^%@ to the poor guy who opened hos mouth at the wrong time.  We’re fun that way.  He does this nearly every night.  1245, out of the yard……  For the next 4 hours it’s up the hill, down the hill.  Push snow up the hill, put pretty parallel lines on it.  Random chatter on the two way, tunes rockin’ the cab.

4 am… NAPTIME!  zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…. 5am, Cell phone plays its happy tune and we’re off again.  Why you ask?  ‘Cause it’s a fine way to be first on the hill.  ‘Cause you get to see some interesting stuff in the dark hours.  Maybe because you have a predisposition to play with sandbox toys and these are the coolest of the lot.  The real reason?  You get to see this at about 6 am every morning…..

Yeah I get paid for this……
