    It was -1 here in Iowa, and my wife's car didn't start. On a positive note, I now know I can push a midsized SUV by myself!

    Got it jumped and even after letting it run for 20 min it wouldn't start again...guess who gets to replace a battery in 0 degree temps tonight!

    Yup we back to winter and snow. Could not even contemplate getting into my shop this weekend. Even with all the heat i can bring to the party it would not have been managable. Rather frustrating. Then to add to it , the Pats go loose.
    cheers

    Well I got the new battery in over lunch...probably set a new record. Couldn't feel my toes or fingers when I came in and there was a nice snotcicle on my nose too! I won't be home til after dark so I had to get it done so I could at least see what I was doing even I I couldn't feel anything. BRRRRRRR

    Allen, you took the words right out of my fingers.

    Of course, we do have a member who moved to Minnesota for the warmer weather - Barry Stratton - but he was living in Alaska before then.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
