Stay home, make some soup.
Stay home and play the guitar.
I still have one more container of chili left
I get a few minutes at least just about every day. I get terrible cabin fever though. Around noon or so i'm going to be chewing the furniture or something
Well, at least you won't have to worry about driving in the HOV lane for the next couple days.
Here's are some winter car tips from a genuine Canadian:
use a broom to clear snow off your car. it's way better than those little scraper/brush thingies.
when you're driving on snowy roads and no one's around, do a brake test. brake hard and see what happens when it's safe. that way when you need to, you'll know the limits of adhesion.
before it snows, pull your wipers off the windshield. it's easier to clean and scrape your windshield when it doesn't have windshield wipers frozen solid on them
Be warm, be safe, ok?
Ya have an acoustic?
We have power out at least twice every winter
It's been too cold for us to work anyway. We should be ok on Monday
Nope, no acoustics here. I'm on the same power grid as the hospital a block away. So the chances of losing power are pretty low
Got all that stuff covered but t thank you. What really burns me up are the clowns that don't clear the snow off their vehicles before they drive
Ah, a Thursday in January!
All good advise. As for the wipers, I made a pair of 2.5' long covers from a FoodSaver bag roll and I slide them over the wipers at night...good from the freezer to the microwave!
it's supposed to be mid to low 30's F tonight and tomorrow night. Since its mandatory to toss your winter duds when moving down here, everyone looks like homeless when going out.
Where I am from that is a fine. In both Pa. and N.J. you will be pulled over for having snow on your vehicle. If you hit a nice cop,he will just make you clean it off, but it is a motor vehicle offense.
I'm in "The Great White North" and I believe it is mandatory here as well but idiots still drive with a "porthole" in front of them and nothing else cleared. You will get pulled over here if your lic. plate is obscured by snow though.
I do the clean of the car, lights, signals, plates and everything before I go out at this time of year.
I've seen some that attach somehow so they don't blow off. Velcro, zippers maybe ? But we usually only get one good snow a year so no sense going overboard. The thing that is bad is snow removal. They do interstates then major roadways. That's' it. If you live out in the sticks or in a neighborhood you're out of luck. Luckily im right by a hospital and have major roads around my place but I don't live on one. So all I need to do is get maybe a quarter mile to paved, plowed roads
Got me a tarp with soft magnets that goes over the windshield, hood, and locks itself inside the front doors. Brush the snow of, pull the tarp, and it's like it never snowed on the front of the car. Sadly I still have to clean the rest of it off the old fashioned way.
If this storm lives up to the extreme hype of our local news, looks like I'll be on liberal leave tomorrow. Got my beer stocked up just in case,and will be ready to jam the day away.
Also, keep a full tank of gas so that if you get stuck you can keep the engine running to stay warm until the tow truck gets there.
And another way to maintain traction on roads with no curb or shoulder is to drive with the right wheels just off of the pavement so that anything frozen will crunch under the weight of the vehicle and not be packed slick.
Brooms will scratch the snot out of your clear coat. You might look insane, but a leaf blower is pro status.
