Winter is back

Last night we had freezing drizzle and icy stuff. Today it's just below freezing. You could hear the sand and salt trucks out last night, trying to make certain the cars stay on the road this morning.

The heater in the car went out last night.

It's been that kind of year. With luck, it will just be a fuse. But we all know that Russ and I don't have that kind of luck, especially this year, right? If Russ wasn't driving 140 miles round trip to his job teaching math, I don't think it would even matter much. We don't have the money to go anywhere, after all. (grin)

But, on the good side, I only have 7.5 more chapters to do for the 2YNY2 book. If I really sit down and work, I could have it done today, except for one example that I need to go to a bookstore to do.

Cold car. Hmmmm.....

So.... there's a plan. If not today, then tomorrow. But It will be done, and then I can move on with my life! Yay! Posted by Picasa

I'm reminded of my 1964 Volkswagon Beetle days (remember, they had little or no heat). I carried a blanket in the car and placed it over the lower half of my body in the winter. It helped, and I highly recommend it as an inexpensive temporary measure.

Of course, the defrost feature may be even more critical, because if the heat is out, defrost probably is too. In that case, do you have a 12-volt hair dryer? (not likely, I know.)
