Below Zero Temps

     Had to post these from screenshots on my iPhone4 weather... I am NOT complaining, but it is getting a bit "long" this time for the temps to remain so low - this morning my vehicle cranked a couple of times (older 1999 Ford Escort), but turned over. I remember a friend (Allen Houtz) saying that I need to let it sit in neutral for a few minutes to warm up the oil. So, did that! Then, drove to Kenai for two errands and left the car on while I went inside. Came back out and "service engine soon" is "lit on my dashboard." Have a wonderful mechanic who will stop by tonight after work to make sure I can drive. Low low temps and this is just one five day segment!

This has been a cold winter, and we still have a long ways to go!!! Is it just me or are our winters getting colder each year? Oh well, lets just pray for a nice warm chinook wind!!!! I am really looking forward to spring!
Stay warm!!!! Hope your car hangs in there !!!
