A little story for you.
I was going to post it in The Lounge, but thought I'd put it here for now.
A story about Canadian Winter, a Bonneville, and a pregnant wife.
Lookin' out my front door today, this is what we have. Doing mods seems so far away!
I should point out, that with the wind chill, temps today are -22C, or -8F.
Where we get on topic, is this: My frozen car. It'* mighty cold in Southern Ontario today, and we are experienceing quite a "winter event". Blowing snow, poor visibility, and dropping temperatures.
This is my first winter with this car, and it hasn't let me down yet. She roars to life, no problem. Haven't even had to use the block heater (touch wood).
Ah, inside the car now. We have an important mission today. Not a far trip, but in a blizzard it seems long enough. Here is my ugly mug, with my green touqe. It matches the colour of my car. Do you think my car noticed?
Lets hit the road!
Slippery roads today. Too bad my Traction Control isn't working.
Want another frozen car pic? Okay.
What'* the point of all of this? Well, if you have dealt with having a pregnant significant other, you know how they sometimes NEED certain foods. My wife, Lissa is no different. Today it was cabbage rolls. She had to have 'em.
Mmm. Can't you just taste them?
Hope you liked my little story. Goes to show we can count on our cars to keep us out of trouble.
Oh, as soon as this snow melts, you better believe I am going to clean all of this salt and sand off the car.
By the way, during earlier travels today, I was able to help an elderly man who slipped and fell on the side walk. I picked him up, carried him to my car, and asked him if he needed a hospital. He didn't, so I took him to his retirement apartment. A real nice fellow, and I was glad I could do my good deed for the day.
I deserve a whiskey now!
