Winter in the
Ships are built in shipyards. When I started working in the shipyard it was a cold winter. We never used to have any heat and many times I would have to shovel the snow out from under me. All the work was outdoors, and where I was working got covered in snow. It snowed a lot, sometimes three or four feet. If snow got on the plates I had to shovel it out, and blow it out with an air hose before I could start working. That is the way I worked all winter.
