Default A Lesson Lived, is a Lesson Learned..

This so true. This is what I have learned this past week.

- Don't put a car cover on your car in the winter, expecting it to come off until the snow melts

- Hair Dryers aren't as efficient in -4* weather

- Studying for HS exams suck

- There is nothing like seeing your car for the first time in many weeks.

Oh yeah, this is all stems from, me defrosting my car just now. I finally got the car cover off, after 2 hours of pulling, blowing, waiting, and freezing my *** off. All in all, it was worth it. I love my car

Take a picture it'll last longer....



Ah i know what you mean. My car is so covered in salt that i can't see it (heck it looks like yours right now) when i wash it it brings warmth to my heart, and when walking away from it i look at it a lot.

OSG: Some peoples' kids...

Jason: My car is all nice and perty right now. Ran her through the auto-wash on Sunday. But we're finally getting some snow, so she'll be coated in salt again by this weekend...
