There ain't nothing like -40 degree weather to bring out the problems in a car. When you got numerous cars.... yeah.

Don't even ask.

I might tell you when I'm in a better mood.

Not sure I even know all the problems yet to rear their ugly head.

Well, since you asked. [Rant] Power steering. Won't start, needs towed. Another won't start (wife's car) (great) (hopeful it will start at warmer temps). AWD is now a FWD. Blower motor. Dead battery in a car that you need a set of tools, a shop, 3 hours, and a degree in cursing just to get to the battery. Another power steering..... something else.... and something else.... I forget.

I'm already $900 into it and the AWD fix alone will be $1300.

Oh. And that's just mechanical problems. That ain't even the whole story.[/rant]

Here's wishing you had a good Thanksgiving.

I don't drink much. But I am running out of R&R, and have no way to get to the liquor store.... car won't start.

Lots of ammo though.... Hmmmmm. Don't even know where I'm going with that.

Hmmm. Lots of ammo. Frustrating, non-functioning cars sitting outside. I think I know where I'd be going with it....

But seriously, sorry to hear about the car troubles. And certainly not the time of year up there you want to be experiencing them. Good luck!

I see in the news that the cold is headed south.

It's only -10 (-20C) at the moment. I'll pass the play by play weather report off to mabby.

I was watching a documentary about modern day Antarctica, and the melting Ross Ice Shelf, and the people on screen were complaining about the -15 C weather.
I was about to yell "pussies!!" at the screen when I remembered that with all of their humidity --and the 90km/hr winds-- -15 would feel a lot worse than it does on a sunny day around here.

-11 C in town yesterday, and it was definitely shivery.
-2 C today (28F) and people are walking around with their coats open.

When life dishes you ice, make snow cones.
Everyone smiles when they get a snow cone... With two or three flavors.

It all depends on what you're used to. If it's the first cold day of winter, and was recently warm, 32 feels cold to me too. But after a couple of days near zero degrees or worse, a jump back up to 32F feels like balmy tropical weather.

I feel your pain. So far this year we had:

A 6 yr old washing machine go out
The breaker box on our house deep fry itself into oblivion.
My 7th kidney stone.
The transmission on my van go out three days prior to loading up 300+ games to haul to Dallas for BGG con. Had to rent a van for that trip because everything wouldn't fit in a Honda Accord.

My wife has referred to 2016 as "The year the bank bled out"
