WEEK 526: COLD - Olney, MD

Posted on 02/14/2016 1:42:10 PM PST by trooprally

Cold weather finally settled in. After a 70 degree Christmas day, it was welcomed - NOT

BELOW: This is Lurker Jim's temperature reading at 10AM as we got started.

.

But this pales when compared to several Walter Reed FReeps. One time Kburi's gauge read 20 when we started and 12 when we ended. And there was no ambient warmth from the sun on the cold Friday nights. Of course today in Olney there was 20 MPH+ winds which cancelled out any ambient warmth. One gust was so high that we saw gravel and trash being blown along Rte. 108. Lurker Bill had hand warmers for every one. It was too bad he did not have some way to keep his sound system warm (Left side of picture on curb). It pooped out after 10 minutes.

BELOW LEFT: Four brave souls in good spirits. BELOW RIGHT: Flags Unfurled - Note bending of flag poles.



In the pictures, 2nd from left, is Marine LCPL Ed. He was home on leave and joined us. He was given a field promotion to Corporeal due to the cold. .

The others (left to right) are Fraxinus, Lurker Bill (sporting his winter beard) and Lurker Jim. .

BELOW: From the week before, Cindy_True_Supporter and [Mrs] Trooprally. Yes 3DJoy, there is a [Mrs] Trooprally. .

You guys and gals are something!!! Hope you didn’t stay out tooooooooo long, and happy you had the hand warmers.

Now -— who wants to become a millionaire and invent a battery operated full length warmed cape??

We are actually out for an hour with a little set up and take down time.

Maybe Trump will after he becomes president. It will be for the illegals when he ships them up north.

Thanks to the Marine for standing in the cold with you. Jeans don’t give much protection, though it looks like he had a warm Carhartt camo jacket there, so maybe it wasn’t too awful for him. A nice gesture for him to join you. May God bless and protect him and all of you.

Hello my friends.. Mr & Mrs! Surprised but happy to see you are still holding down the fort there... I was only with you once there.. more often at Walter Reed. Haven’t had a DC trip since that last one with you when Walter Reed had its last day. Hugs/love from Ohio
