Well, here it is 11 pm and the temperature is zero. That's right, zero. At least the wind isn't blowing very hard, so the wind chill is only -8 degrees. I had to resort to putting on my housecoat tonight. It's supposed to get cold later this week, so I guess I'll keep it close.

Here's good news. My son-in-law came by today to let me know my car was at a neighboing town's convenience store, because the tranny crapped out. Just dandy. I didn't say anything to him, because I'm too angry. Now I'm out a car, can't drive the truck, and am going to wind up either letting it sit forever or paying a grand to fix the transmission. I know they're not gonna do it. When they get their tax return they're supposed to be getting a car so they don't have to use mine. And now I can't use it either. ACK!! Yes, I realize it wasn't exactly a new car (1991), but it was all I had. I am seriously considering letting it sit. I don't drive that often, though it's nice to know I can. I'm trying to save some money so I can go on a trip this summer.

I guess I have my anger to keep me warm.
