Blowing Snow At 8 Below

Colleague Colin Mulvany explains this shot: “This morning I was grumbling about my working conditions of having to go out in the bitter cold to find a snow feature photo. But seeing these two guys snow blowing bridge sidewalks made me rethink my plight. They were clearing the sidewalks in front of Spokane City Hall when I spotted them. Visually boring and not an interesting enough photo was my first thought. I soon realized the men were going to turn the corner and head over the Monroe Street Bridge. More here.

Question: Which job performed by someone who must be outside on a day like this makes you grateful for your working conditions?
