"...I was a power production guy - Oh, the joy of getting called to the flight line at 3 AM for another power outage.  Just finding the P.O.L. building during an average "white out" was interesting - but not as much fun as informing the duty P.O.L. Sgt that I needed him to drive me around at -56 to refuel my generators!..."
