That'* depressing.

I drove to work too. Told the boss i have next Friday off, he pointed out the Monday after we have off and then I have the Friday after that off. Good start to the year. 5 day week, 4 day week, 3 day week.

Meanwhile I cranked the stereo this morning (still can't go past a little over half. Showed off the 1 mile range starter to a coworker

Drove to the doc this morning. (Day off) In a blizzard. 4" on the car, and we just got warned for another anywhere from 5-10" by tomorrow morning. Going down my hill there was like skating. Getting back up the hill was only made possible by the traction control. On my way home, almost got run over by some truck driver in a hurry. Decided to pass (in an uphill passing lane) that hadn't been plowed or sanded yet, and quickly found himself sliding into my lane.
Then I got home, played with the wiring and the door switch to the seat heater again. Nothing lose that I can tell. The module just clicks, and the switch seems to get stuck on HI.
Then came in and put icyhot on my back and took some advil. I'm so used to having heated seats the last couple years, even year-round they help my back out so much when I'm driving. Not having them really sucks.

I just looked at mine. All the snow melted off to have about 4 inches return on it last night. Maybe tomorrow I should remember to hit the remote starter and let it push the oil around. Prolly two more months before it comes out to play.

loaded up the 02 hd to go ice fishing .started down the road truck was draging difs and frame in the hard packed snow . the road was blocked by a ford pu high centered they were shoveling so hooked on the rope and took three tries and they were free then had to back all the way back out . but was blocked in by a dodge pu that was stuck also so pulled him out also i was able to get past him after he got out of the tracks and got stuck again so hooked on again and this time drug him all the way back out to the black top. i couldnt believe it the ford owner said it took a chevy to pull out a ford and a dodge. oh fishing sucked no bites and didnt even see one on the fishfinders
