Default Snowpocalypse 2019

[Where's Irv? He usually posts this.] So my car battery is bad and though it has somewhat a charge, it won't start my car. Consulted two mechanic friends who don't think it's the starter or gas line or anything like that. So I can't move my car for the plow. I am going to go out and clear some of the snow off in the middle of the storm to at least give myself some kind of advantage, as my friend is going to come over later and help me change the battery. If not I'll just leave it until the weekend. I took today off and I think I might take the bus a few days if need be. On Wed. it will be really cold so maybe a cab. That's all if the battery doesn't solve the problem.

It may solve your problem, but you should probably also get your alternator checked, too.

Well, the bulk of the snowing has passed my town and now the wind is going to kick it up everywhere. There is only a small mound of snow at the end of my car where I would back out. I was able to kick most of that over with my boots so I know I could drive over it. It's not as bad as that storm last April when the snow was much wetter and heavier.

Kids are off school tomorrow because it could show anywhere from 1-3 inches 😄

This is the deep South though, apparently this city doesn't even own one salt truck.

Some of the schools might be out for days because of the wind chill.

That's what happened here with the last storm. They don't know exactly what we're getting yet; rain, snow, snow turning to sleet/rain, no idea.

The forecast for Wednesday night is -35F here in central MN. That is not the windchill, but the actual temp.

I so wish I were in a warmer place during this.

Dude, and I thought our single digits were nasty. We get the occasional subzero temp here, but usually not that cold. Although sometimes the wind chills are almost that bad. Still....take care!
