We're still on the chilly side these days, and will continue to be for a while longer. As I write these, we are just below freezing, and our predicted highs aren't going to be much warmer. It's like that mild weather we had, and my being able to do some clean up in the spruce … Continue reading Still a bit chilly, and unexpected things
Well, my mother's car is now at the garage. It won't be worked on today. The mechanic was missing some information on file to be able to order a new tire. Which is fine. I'm just glad I had my daughter follow me in the van! I talked to him about what happened, and was … Continue reading Moving forward
So this lends weight to the "defective tire" theory. I checked the trail cam files from yesterday. With the one camera, there just isn't a view of that tire, but with the other... I cropped this from a screen cap of the video. It's the best I could get. Even taking into account that the … Continue reading Well, now
You see this? This is why I'm paranoid about tires. Actually, I'm paranoid about vehicle break downs and troubles in general, but especially about tires. My mother's car got all new tires after we didn't hit a deer, a couple of winters ago, and drove through a ditch, instead. With how infrequently my mother's car … Continue reading This is why.
I took my mother's car out to run some errands. This just happened. I am now on the side of the road, waiting for CAA. It was very difficult to explain to the person how to find me. She couldn't even find out little hamlet on Google maps. I have no idea what I hit … Continue reading Really?!?!?
Another day where some things went to plan, and others... not so much! But that's not always a bad thing. 🙂 While today wasn't as warm as yesterday, we were still very mild. For the first time in ages, there was no ice at all on the cats' water bowls! Things are very messy out … Continue reading We have a “baby”!
What a huge difference between yesterday and today! At a time when we were at -28C/-18F yesterday, we were at -8C/17F this morning! When I changed out Potato Beetle's water bowl yesterday, which was up close to the heat bulb, I ended up with a shell of ice. This morning, there was no ice at … Continue reading Well, half the job is done!
Image source Well, I'm back from taking the van to the garage. I should be happy. I really should. As I write this, we are still at -21C/-6F with a wind chill of -30C/-22F. Before heading out, I made a point of starting the van, then headed back inside to give it a good 15 … Continue reading Of course…
Can you believe this??? These are the temperatures, screencapped just minutes before I started this post. That's right. We're at -28C/-18F with a wind chill of -32C/-26F. Actually, the wind chill was reading at -35C/-31F when I did the (short version!) morning rounds! I only saw Potato Beetle when I opened the sun room. Not … Continue reading Welcome to March!
Yesterday, I made a point of running our van and my mother's car for a while, to warm up the engines. The doors to where my mother's car is parked are sagging, so they open on their own unless they are blocked with something heavy. I've been using one of the many tires scattered about … Continue reading Van stuff, and we have emerged… 😀
