[travel] You know it's cold when...

You know it's cold when they have to tow your aircraft into the hangar and spend two hours thawing it. Not de-icing it, thawing it.

You know it's cold when the rental car company won't give you the keyless remote because, "It's too cold and the batteries die on those things."

You know it's cold when your nostril hairs freeze walking the sixty feet from the parking space to the doors of the hotel.

Living la vida larga here in Omaha, baby.
