What a difference a day makes

Yesterday we had a high of 92 and tonight it is supposed to get down to 33 degrees.  As I type this it is 36 degrees but feels like it was 29.  For me that is pretty darn cold.

I drove dad's old car into town today...had driven for about four miles when I reached the first stop light.  It felt like it wanted to die...at the next stop light it did die...but started right back up.  Wonder what is wrong with that crazy car?

Went to Wal-Mart and when I came out...the front had arrived...the wind was blowing like crazy. Bet the temperature dropped at least 25 degrees and of course I did not have my jacket with me. Was going run more errands but decided they could wait and went to Domino's Pizza instead, then headed straight home.

Once more turned on the central heater and it will remain on for at least the next two days.  I do not do cold weather except in Terlingua around a roaring campfire...I sure do miss my favorite desert and my friends :-(

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

  1. If that car is has a carb and is too old to be fuel injected, and the gas has been sitting in it for a few months....it could be the wonderful FedGov enforced ethanol fuel that goes sour after it sits for long. I understand it begins to go bad after 3-4 weeks. Ruins lawn mowers, chain saws, weed eaters and all sorts of small engines.

    IMHO

  3. I am ready to be warm, inside my house and outside. It stays so cold indoors that I have to wear lots of layers. I'll probably be complaining in a few months when we have unbearable heat waves like last year! Glad you got that car started again.

    1. In my house in Houston I have not turned on the heater in about a decade and like yourself just dress in layers.

      My mom is a petite woman and she is always cold so we have to have the heater on at her house and it costs a pretty penny.

      Like yourself I will be complaining during the summer heat waves that in West Texas are the norm :-(
