sliding glass dining room door. More specifically... the INSIDE of our glass dining room door. Which should paint a pretty frosty picture of just how cold - 49 C with the windchill is.
Nah, "cold" is not nearly descriptive enough.
And because of Mother Nature's demented sense of humour, we endured not one, not two, no... not even three excursions into the Arctic blast. We ventured outside on four trips to the mall yesterday.
The first was at 10:00 am when Daughter and I went Christmas shopping. I took my van and Daughter took her car, since she had a six hour shift at Starbucks after shopping.
The second trip came at about 7:30 pm when Daughter called home after her shift to inform us her car wouldn't start. And since the mall was still open, the parking lot was way too crammed to even get close enough to boost her. So I simply picked her up and brought her home until the mall closed at 9:30.
The third trip occured at 10ish to hopefully find her little car accessible (luckily parked far enough away from the 24 hour Wal*Mart lot). But even though we could drive up nose to nose, her now Ice Cube On Wheels couldn't be persuaded to turn over even with a boost from the van.
Trip number four was taken at well past midnight to finally meet CAA who were running nearly three hours late. Sadly, even THEY couldn't get the poor thing going... so off it was towed to our local Canadian Tire.
Yep, it was quite a Saturday night alright...
And it's not even WINTER yet.
