Whoo-hoo! Home at last

The mechanic called this morning to say that he had the jeep done enough for me to use it until I can get it back to the shop after this icy/snowy weather is done. It still needs a bracket to hold the headlights more secure (right now it's rigged with zip-ties), tie rods, and some other things, but it will get me in and out my county road and I am thrilled. Next week, I'll take it back to get the rest of the work done.

It feels good to be home after camping out at work all week. Good to see my kids!

Right now it's 7*F and getting colder by the hour. Will likely be at or below 0*F tomorrow morning. Brrrr!

at noon today it is 12 deg.F and was 5 deg.F this a.m. and -11 deg. wind chill. which is +1 deg.F now.

It was colder last night than prediction so I hope it closer to prediction or higher tonight, not that a few degrees would make much difference! Glad the vehicle may soon be out of car hospital!

Good to know you made it home! Our pipes are frozen for the second day in a row. We are not used to 9 and 13 degree temps way down here. But at most it is only an inconvenience. Those dirty dishes will just have to wait ;) You certainly have it much worse! Stay warm my friend!
