As you have read in my posts it has been terrifically cold.
When it is this cold your car has a tendency not to want to start if it isn't consistently used.
Yesterday, my 86 y/o mother has a beauty shop appointment and her car won't start.
She calls the garage and the wrecker comes and starts her car.
They tell her to let it run for 45 minutes (so the battery charges) before she could turn it off.
She got to her hair appointment.
It started just fine after that and she got home.
She can't figure out why it didn't start.
When I stopped and saw her on Sunday, I asked if she needed anything from the grocery store.
It was very snowy and windy and the temperature was going to drop.
She said she was fine until Wednesday when she was going to go out, get her hair done and stop at the store.
So when she asked me the question "Why didn't my car start?"
I responded, "Because you have started it since Friday or Saturday: 4 or 5 days."
She now has been arguing with me that she had gone out before Wednesday.
Today, being concerned about her car, she started it.
She has an automatic start button on her key.
Those only turn the car on 10 or 15 minutes to warm up the car then it shuts off.
She couldn't figure out why the car didn't run for 45 minutes like she wanted it too.
"It just shut off."
I explained to her what I just stated above and she argued with me.
She is making me crazy!
I have posted the latest update on Prairie Schooler February.
The needle has been moving pretty fast.
It was much warmer today but, that has come to mean snow.
We got 5-6 inches.
Then the temperature is going to drop.
It won't be quite as cold but, it is still going to be pretty frigid, a high tomorrow of 13.
Hooray, as always tomorrow is Friday.
One of the things I would like to accomplish this weekend is dye a little piece of fabric for the Primitive Hare Freebie Link Here.
This is a wonderful little piece just in time for Valentine's Day.
I will do it in some redish, pinkish overdye.
Hope your week has been wonderful.
Thank you to everyone who stops and takes the time to comment.
Have a great weekend...we are all getting cabin fever in this neck of the woods.
I may need to bake some cookies even though Bob will complain if I do...
Who in their right mind complains about homemade cookies?
Keep on stitching
