Tuesday Evening

I would love to tell you are weather is great but that would be a HUGE lie. It's miserable!!!!
Temp. is -3 with a windchill of -17 or so. Oh it is snowing some. We are looking forward to
-13 as a low and am glad I will be under my down comforter!! I don't want to know what the
wind chill will be either.

Weather back east does not look good either..

So I got into my van and did some errands this afternoon. Knowing that I  don't drive far in
the winter I left the van running until it warmed up ( only in SD). Then went to my local
espresso/lunch place (Ward's Store) to say hi and have a nice cup of espresso.

I left after about 20 minutes or so and started the no no and it did not start.
Temp is now dropping & I have very little patience left. I phoned Scott at Palmlund Auto,
my fav person in the whole world, and he was downtown in a flash. Jumped the vehicle
and on my way HOME!!!

So I am in for the duration as Scott ckd. my battery & it's about 47%, me I'm at 10%. So a
battery lasts under 4 yrs now!! Will be saving for that investment now.

I am working on my slippers & watching tv..What a life.

Peace & smiles,


  1. I'm sorry to hear about the problem with your van. I'm glad you were able to call for help and get home. What a day!

  2. Wow that is a bummer about your van and about the weather. The lowest it's gotten where I live is about 48 degrees lol! At least you have cold weather, so you can wear all your hand knits. I get a few months out of the year in California where hand knits are acceptable.
