There is nothing quite like preflighting an aircraft at 5:30 in the morning when the temperature is -14 degrees celsius, with the wind blowing snow in your face, and forcasters severe windchill warning not to be outside with exposed skin. Especially, when it is first flight of the day so you have to opean all the panels and bay doors for inspection. What makes it even more fun is when it is after a continuous duty overnight, the hotel does not have breakfast that early, and you get the spot with no jetbridge. In fact, it is so much fun that I got to do it twice since we had a mechanical requiring us to deplane, cancel the flight, and get a ferry permit several hours later. Ahhh yes, living the dream... living the dream.
