im happy to say the snow has temporarily stopped here. but pushing that single stage snowblower into the the icy snow 30 times a min did a number on my wrists. good thing i have good powersteering cause im basically steering with my index fingers lol. gotta get a piece of cardboard for the grille though. turns out at 2 degrees my car doesnt get hot enough for the thermostat to open. cold defrost sucks.

lol. im not even sure how it broke to be honest. i clipped it on my belt loop, left the car running with the other ring while i jumped my dads car (he left the interior light on) while it was blizzarding, went to get back in the car and nothing there. hopefully when that pile eventually melts 3 months from now they'll be laying there lol

What'* wrong with putting keys into a pocket? Works well for me all the time.

It'* been sunny and clear here for a few days. Only a couple small flurries in the forecast. The snow is melting even on the cold days. The piles are shrinking and soon I may be able to see what'* coming down the street as a try to get out fo the driveway. The town decided to wing plow my side of the road this time. Hopefully that'lll keep all the snow from going over the bank into the sidewalk. So far it'* worked well in the last storm. Yeah..banks are that high.

as for the keys, its just wasier to clip them to ur belt. espically in winter, carheartt overalls wintercoats pants you can never remember which pocket theyre in lol. i guess its also a habit from riding harleys with my dad. pocket keys+ 70mph vibrating harley= lots of missing keys lol.

heres a -5F -20c cold start of my car this morning. not plugged in, facing into the wind. (i know im dumb for doing that but i didnt think it would be -5)
