Looked like a 2000+, was looking at the SUV. It was on it'* wheels, but you could tell it had just spent a little time not on it'* wheels. Big chunks of sod sticking out of the luggage rack kind of tipped me off as to what happened.

After working a weekend from hell.. (late sat, early sun) I usually come home after my Sunday shift and sleep. Most of the time no matter how much caffeine I have, I just crash when I get home even if I have stuff I want to do.
Well, I guess I had some determination today. Leaving work, I noticed all tires were low on pressure with varying degrees. Tried to stop at a station to get air, but none had a working pump between work and home. So I got home, only to find out my air hose on my own compressor bit the dust. I have my CH 12v powered one, but I'd rather not drag it out unless I have to.
My dad was making a run to another town over for things, so I had him pick me up a new air hose. In the meantime, I put the LeSabre up on ramps and got the oil changed (Mobil 1 synthetic/Purolator Gold), and finished installing and wiring my foglights. Having it up on ramps made getting them mounted up a lot easier, and also not having to be hunched over the engine bay doing the wiring.
Considering I'm usually dozing off, I'd say I got a lot accomplished.

After taking my son to school, I plan to change the thermostat on the truck. Might pull the Bonneville out of the shop and wash it, then put it right back. Forecast is a high of 55* but with rain. Tomorrow a high of 37*
