    This might help you when you see people outside when it is "Cold"

    A newbie residential appraiser at the Bloomington, IL Assessor's office
    was
    complaining yesterday about having to measure houses in "THIS KIND OF
    WEATHER!?" . . .which was a beautiful day in the 30s. I wasn't
    cutting him
    ANY slack because this is MY "Kind of Weather"!

    Should have seen the poor guy huddled in my garage the other day when I was working on another truck in my driveway. I don't think I could have knocked him away from the propane heater with a lead pipe! Standing no more than 3ft from it, and still shivering! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Just Kidding Brian! But, we'll expect you'll have it under control next year! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
