Out of the Blue

Seems like the unusual actual autumn we've experienced around these parts may have come to an abrupt conclusion... it's in the 20s today, and I imagine there's a good chance we won't see a thaw again until the spring. The good news is the recent work the plumber did to abate the flooding here has fixed the flow of heat to the second floor. The bad news is that the little baseboard radiators in my office still don't do much of anything, so the space heater is now working overtime.

Why don't you go knock and see if he needs a hand getting going this morning.....

That, or fly to the top of the Blue Tower, rappel to the roof, cut a hole in the skylight, steal the Blue Server, and post today's news from your NSA-secure wireless satellite uplink on the "nin Airball 1"....

A garage will go a long way towards keeping the ice away as well.

I've got a F-150 extra cab with the long bed - it doesn't fit in our garage....

Yeah. Figures that one of our garage doors would break (cable snapped; knew it was going to happen, but hadn't gotten around to fixing it. Oops. At least nobody was hurt.) the week it gets well below freezing at night. And I couldn't find my ice scraper this morning -- it's probably in the garage somewhere.

Hopefully I'll have time to fix it this weekend.

Of course the way to combat that is to warm your car up in the morning before you leave - which is illegal here in Washington! Well, it's illegal to leave a running vehicle unattended anyway, even in your own driveway with the doors locked like I do it. But I do it anyway because I'm a rebel.

I'm stuck with a diesel F-250. When it's cold I plug it in an d it never has any ice on it at all.

A garage will go a long way towards keeping the ice away as well.

Why would I go and do something like that? I like watching ice literally spread across my windshield in seconds like I'm in goddamn The Day After Tomorrow.

( it was 10* below 0 F ) well by the end of the day his VW bug was ENTOMBED in ice ! then at 4:30 when he left we locked the doors and watched out the window as he struggled to open the drivers side door with a borrowed ice scraper....tooo funny !

we drove on the PA turnpike with my head out the window to tell her how to steer because the washer fluid froze on the windshield.

Oh yeah, that's always fun. In the summer I don't mind using the cheap washer fluid but for winter driving the good stuff is worth every penny.

My favorite is when it's so cold you start getting frost on the windows inside the car. Nothing like driving down the road while scraping a peekhole in your windshield.

Of course the way to combat that is to warm your car up in the morning before you leave - which is illegal here in Washington! Well, it's illegal to leave a running vehicle unattended anyway, even in your own driveway with the doors locked like I do it. But I do it anyway because I'm a rebel.

45-60 degrees is winter?! Temps like those let you know when late spring has arrived, that's t-shirt weather!

I don't know how you crazies can go a whole year without snow or even freezing rain. Aside from the recreational benefits it adds a certain edge to any kind of travel you have planned. There's nothing like dodging sliding semis in white out conditions to let you know you're alive!

I drove across the country (CA to Silver Springs, MD) with my GF (at the time) in Jan 1994 during that nasty cold spell - we drove on the PA turnpike with my head out the window to tell her how to steer because the washer fluid froze on the windshield. Shit, that was scary. All kinds of places were shut down due to ice, snow, and cold. No thanks. You can keep it. If I want snow, I'll drive 2 hours to Lake Tahoe/Truckee, stay for the day, and come home.
