My car is back on the road for the time being. A friend bought me some power steering fluid and it was still leaking so I took it to the mechanics. Three big guys pushed a truck out of the bay so they could get my car on the lift. Then they fixed it in about 10 minutes and charged me $10.

All it needed was a new clamp on the patch. I am not mechanical, and even after I jacked up one side of the car lying in the snow (on a blanket) trying to seat the clamp on the hose was beyond me. Something about lying down with the car inches over my head made me too claustraphobic to deal with it properly. Definitely worth the $10.

We are under a winterstom watch with snow and ice later. The alert system called and said the kids will be released at noon, no basketball game tonight.

I have 2 cords of wood to stack, groceries to buy, dishes to wash-laundry will have to wait for another day!

Brrr! cold but at least above 0F!
