I see you deleted your "ASS-MAN" license plate.

PG said...

yup. As my 78 year old father always says (well actually he writes it in snow that is stuck to the winshield of his car) "Winter Sux!"

Mitch McDad said...

Wow. It looks just like one of those Corona beach commercials.


Merry Christmas (belated) to you and your family, Jeff.

Dan said...

At least you get snow *grumble*

Gale said...

Two words - block heater... then alls ya gotta do is plug it into the wall every night. Oh yeah! Saves wear and tear on the old battery.

Jeff said...

dave2 - And it doesn't even taste good.

rick - Thanks a lot, I was trying to keep that private. Actually, it's dumb that I even bother to delete the numbers. I've seen other bloggers do it so I figured that's what you're supposed to do, but really, what is someone going to do with my license number?

pg - Wow, he can write all that in the snow? I'm lucky if I can write my name legibly.

mitch - Thanks Mitch, you too. Drinking a Corona would have been my preference over dealing with that crap, that's for sure.

dan - Yeah, we like our snow. For the first few weeks.

gale - Three words. I HAVE ONE. I just didn't plug it in because I haven't had any problems until now. I guess I will now though!

i love my new remote car starter. fight against winter

Just the other day I was saying to my husband, "I can hardly wait until we live in Hawaii". Won't see snow unless I go to the top of a Volcano. :)

The car looks far too clean to be in Minnesota. My forest green wreck is a salty shade of white.

Retire eventually to warmer climes!

Damn that is so true. I think we're biologically designed to think of that first picture every winter so that we don't off ourselves before the snow flys.

You're a rugged people you Minnesotans (is that the right term?).

Brrrrrr.

Heather said...

That's why I park in the garage.

Jeff said...

stepping - Wow, that's too funny. My wife just gave me one for Christmas! I'm bringing my car in to have it installed tomorrow!

carla - Pffftttt!

sornie - Uh, trust me... you're only seeing the front.

windy - You mean like Florida or Arizona? Like OLD people do?

drowseymonkey - Yeah, that fantasy lasts all of one snowstorm.

ve - In my dreams VE, in my dreams.

g - You got it. Minnesotans we are!

heather - Well, I WOULD park in the garage, but it's been consumed by my wife's and my son's cars. Somehow my car got exiled to the frozen tundra.

Thanks for trying to make those of us who live in summerland feel better about lacking seasons.

One year when we lived in Duluth, there was a record number of accumulated snowfall - over eleven feet of the crap. I wanted to sculpt a giant hand with the middle finger extended, in the front yard, but hubby wasn't keen.

booklady said...

So true!!!! I hope the car troubles were just a set-up in the name of a good photo. If not, I hope your car is feeling better soon.

Doozie said...

you forgot about the yellow spots in the snow all around your house?
