Default Cold!

Friday was the coldest day I Nashville since 1996 and guess what happened. At 5:30 am on my way to work my truck decides it doesn't want to go to Nashville and quits!!! According to the thermometer at the house it was 11 degrees. The $3.09 a gallon gas I got a couple days ago was full of water and froze. The truck ran for 15 to 20 minutes defrosting in the driveway and it wait till I am on the road to die. It's suppose to be even colder the next couple days in the single digits I hate cold whether!

11*, ouch that hurts!! Hope you get it thawed out.
I think it's suppose to get to 11 for us Monday night and a high of 40 Tuesday. I don't function well in that kind of cold. lol. My little garage is full of winter projects too. You can bet I'll have the truck plugged in every night next week.

I honestly, don't see how people live up north where it's 20 and 30+ below.
I guess mother nature has her way of keeping us separate. She keeps us southerns out of the north with the extreme cold and keeps the Yankees out of the south with the 100* + heat in the summer! lol
