Worked 224 hours

= 16hrs per day for 14 days straight.

And they say that slavery is abolished !?

But seriously, 16 hours of work MUST result in diminished productivity and inaccuracy.

I was only required to work half of that, the other half was voluntary overtime. And you are correct in your assumption about diminished productivity and inaccuracy. But we double and triple check each other and our work.

Immigrant is that a silo of some sort?
Dis 'n tipe silo. Dis waar ons die produk bleik om 'n sekere graad van "wit" te kry afhangende van die klient se vereistes. Daai is 'n groot menger (5 verdiepings hoog) wat water onder in die silo in pomp om die produk te verdun sodat ons dit kan uit pomp. Elke jaar moet ons die boute inspekteer en torque check.

First snow of the season. It always catches one by surprise. I keep on telling myself “remember to this and that before the snow comes. Don’t let it catch you off guard like last year...” And then BAM!! It’s here.

I was discussing that with guys at work. Surprisingly a lot of people here are watching it on TV. Canada has a lot of great athletes, who sadly all choose to play hockey. If those boys start playing rugby....watch out!  But hockey is their life. Their whole life. Their priorities in life are: Hockey, breathing, hockey, eating, hockey, staying warm in winter, hockey, family, hockey etc. Nothing else in life matters. If it was not for hockey, Canada would never have existed. Because the only reason they would put up with this weather and want to live here is so that they can play hockey.
I have had to sit through numerous hockey games, and if it was not for the beer it would have been absolute torture.

I think you need to clarify you are talking about ICE hockey - not our normal hockey ....  >:D

Sekerlik sal dit beter wil jou ryding binne wees al hoef dit nie n heated garage te wees. By my roes n ding op as hy buite staan. Dit wil my voorkom jul rygoed roes in elke geval op van die sout op die paaie.

Jy is reg, dit roes ook agv die sout op die paaie, maar die smelt, vries, smelt van die sneeu sal die proses vinniger maak. Die ander issue is die sneeu wat in die garage smelt. Dit maak 'n swembad in die garage en die water en humiditeit moet iewers heen gaan. In die winter is die lug baie droog, so dit absorbeer baie water in die garage.Jy kan dit met 'n fan uitblaas, maar daai lug moet jy vervang en verhit. En as jy 2 garage deure 2 keer per dag oop maak, laat jy al daai hitte uit en moet die hele garage weer van -40C verhit na +5C. So jou elektrisieteit/gas rekening gaan baie hoog wees. Self al is dit nie verhit nie, smelt die sneeu om die engine en dan het jy einde van die dag 'n helse blok ys wat op die garage vloer form tot op die punt waar die blok ys die engine raak dit is so hoog. Ek is seker daar is 100 liter sneeu/ water wat sal smelt van die bakkie af - elke dag . Die skade wat die humiditeit aan die garage/ gereedskap/ toerusting aanrig is waarskynlik net so veel, indien nie meer as die slytasie aan die kar. Dis makliker om elke 3-4 jaar 'n kar te koop as om 'n nuwe garage te bou  :peepwall:
