Mountain – Nantucket Sleighride
Today’s Quote: “The greater good and individual liberty are not opposites. In fact, nothing which suppresses individual liberty could ever help the greater good. Great accomplishments often are built by groups, but the idea and the vision and the drive always comes from an individual.” — Eolake Stobblehouse
It took me 2 ½ hours to get home this evening. I figured taking I-75 would be absolute insanity so I took the main side streets (Dixie – Stroop – Woodman/Harshman – Brandt). Traffic was heavy but, for the most part, moving and the roads were crappy but passable. The truck handled it well. I had to pull into a couple of parking lots to break the ice off my windshield wipers so I could see where I was going. It was almost like a sauna inside the truck but I didn’t want to turn down the heat or the fan as that was helping keep the windshield clear. I’ll have to buy new wipers soon unless I still have the last pair stashed behind the seat. I don’t usually throw away my wiper blades when I replace them. Too many times I’ve had to put them back on for one reason or another.
I had to jumpstart the van this morning so I was concerned about her getting home. It took her about an hour to drive from Wright-Patt. I’m probably going to have to buy a battery for the van soon. I’m not looking forward to that. I’m not looking forward to installing it either, especially if it’s a cold as it has been lately. It’s got to warm up eventually, right? I think I may need to get new jumper cables soon too. It’s always something.
