I could have been +/- OK had my last update on weather been the full story.
However more ice and wet snow dumped on us the rest of Sunday.
looks more forlorn in the deepening snow and is pining for warmer climes.
I had an appointment at 08:00 with a new physician this morning so DW and I shoveled snow and ice and I fired up the snow thrower to clear as much as we quickly were able. The underlying layer of frozen snow and ice meant our Flex almost could not make it up and out. We wanted All-wheel drive but the only option in Georgia when we had to replace the Freestyle was FWD. Limited slip did not help much and once I was able to spin the alternate front wheels enough to melt down to pavement I was able to crawl onto the main road.
That was a skating rink so I very carefully backed up and headed back down to the garage. Very very carefully I avoided bob sledding down, but it was almost like Skeleton sledding for one short nano second as Flexi tilted about 5 degrees from straight and began sliding then achieved grip and pulled straight.
Phew. Nice morning adrenalin rush. So now parked safely in the garage to wait for later in the week ~Thursday or Friday when temps will rise albeit briefly, above freezing.
Perhaps I needed to call…
So now with some “extra” time, I will go back to working on our Escape
I cannot use the phrase “Make hay while the sun shines” as we ain’t gonna be seeing the sun for the rest of the week.
Likely will see about new shoes for Flexi next week. Perhaps with more tread, I would have had an easier time crawling out?
