I'll give you a dollar...

Post  Remaggib on Mon Jan 21, 2013 10:36 pm

... if you come and install my new battery tomorrow morning so I can work. Also, the connectors are shot, so they have to be replaced too. Which involves cutting the cables and working from there. Why am I not looking forward to this? The SUV is in the garage, blocked by this non-running van. I have no way of moving said van otherwise, and where it's sitting outside is right where the wind likes to kick into high gear. The wind comes between the apartment buildings, and cuts right along the front of my garage. And the weather? Well let's see...





Yeah, not looking forward to tomorrow morning.

Put it in neutral, get a buddy or two, and push that paperweight.

That weather pattern looks all too familiar, except it's missing 45 mph wind gusts.

I'm debating pushing it with the Blazer but am kind of afraid to. Considering the rear bumper cover was falling off and I had to drive screws through it and the body to hold it on, I'm afraid it's going to come off. But chances are I'll risk it, I have a 70,000 BTU heater in the garage if I can back the van in... It's pulled up to the garage now though, and the only person I could ask for help to push it around is... unreliable at best. Time to see what 1 person can do lol

Heated ones???? What kinda fancy pants kind contraption has that? No lol ours were the ones with no front door (anymore) and the mesh sides and back. So it was double thermals and a nice insulated jumpsuit while crossing your fingers it was warm enough. Yea one day I drove into work while it was wind chill of -35 to -45 and nobody was there. Probably for the better... Freakin sucked diggin holes in that cat when it was below freezing... One day it took 10 hours to dig 11 holes 42 inchs deep with a 18 inch bit. So I built a snowman with a hard hat and wooden marking planks as arms. Had to use black paint in place of the coal bits but he turned out pretty legit.

We may hit 70 today, but it's dropping to 46 on the beach tonight, WTF!

Rem, there is not enough ca$h in Squid's account to put me in temps under 40, EVER AGAIN! Smashing your cold hands on the frozen frame, nose running, ears numb, F-That Shiza!


Yesterday the wife, the dog and I went for a walk.

What was real slick, was that once I got the battery installed and started the van, the temp readout said -15.
