This is me "making the rounds." Every day I tromp over snow drifts to 10 buildings to make sure the furnaces are running and that there isn't a fuel leak. The fuel here is jet fuel, but other than that and the constant monitoring, the furnaces and controls are quite ordinary.
In the background is the medical center. It's a typical building, built decades ago of corrugated metal. The doors are freezer-type. They open inward so the wind doesn't catch them.
I'm wearing "big red." Everyone is issued one of these parkas, along with lots of other cold weather clothes. Big red is very heavy, but perfect for the climate. No wind gets through! And the hood is big enough to shelter even the face.
