Ok so it 25F after work. The Pk Ave has sat for 10 hours. If feels fairly cold outside and the windshield is well frozen over.
ok so I start the car, I pull the ice scraper out of the trunk, and begin scraping the front windshield.
Of course it is not long before I hear ker-snap and resort to the credit card.
I guess they don't make ice scrapers like they use to.
Now before I get into the car I thought you know the Park Ave is well insulated and wont be that cold in there..so I hop in...
The interior thermometer reads 27F ! I would rather sit in a refrigerator!
Even worse it took 20 minutes of running time to feel heat as the coolant temp finally reads 145F before I pull out.
The first time I grabbed the steering wheel, I thought I was going to get frostbite! So back in the trunk again to get some gloves
With the car ready to go, I back out of my spot at work the steering seems a bit stiff but no big deal, its the rubbing sound that makes me stop and get out...
Wouldn't you know it...The front passenger side tire is almost flat with 10 psi in it. So back in the trunk again, out comes the compressor to fill the tire!
So now I get going and want a smoke, so I go to roll down the driver'* window...NOT..it is frozen solid in the frame. (I give up )
I am use to driving the quiet Pk ave home & on this night all I could hear was the creaking & squeaking bushings & suspension and the compressor still running trying to pump the rear air shocks..let me guess the air is frozen in the lines!
Time to move to Florida!!!
