Some people hate being stuck indoors.
Some people hate the cold.
Some people (like the Pres) hate it when their truck breaks down 1/2 away from their home....especially when their wife told him to let it warm up a while before heading out. The old woman had heard on the news that in this sub zero weather, frozen gas lines are common because of condensation ( which is why in extreme cold weather, it's always best to have a full tank of gas).
But, some people (the Pres) sure are grateful to the unknown passerby...a stranger...who offered to tow the old, big, red and black, Dodge diesel home.
Can you see the thick, white tow line strapped to the Pres' diesel near the driver's side tire?
Unfortunately, the front wheel drive on the stranger's red Jeep Cherokee was broken, making the weight of the Dodge too heavy to make it up the hill on the firmly packed snow and ice from our recent storm.
After giving the young man $35.00 for his kindness and time, the Pres used all our extension cords to connect the charger to the dead batteries.
Tomorrow will be better.
Yes, and so it was Saturday, January 4th, 2014.
