I was in Steamboat Colorado about 10 years ago on a field trip. Boeing 757 Fuel problem, no spar valve indication.
It was ski season and there were some newly hired security employees keeping tabs on us out on the ramp.
5 degrees and I don’t know how much snow but it was a lot. I’m a former Yankee so I was dressed appropriately.
These kids they hired were from the Caribbean. Never seen snow, never been in freezing weather.
That look of horror on their faces demanded empathy. I talked to a couple of them. They were hunched over, teeth chattering.
They thought they had died and gone to some frozen hell. They wanted to go home so bad. I must admit,
I’ve become spoiled by the mild winters down here in Texas. It would be hard to go back to Kansas.
Don’t talk to me about August on the ramp though. Everything is give and take.
