My first puncture 3/8" sheet metal screw. Should of cut the head off and chilled with it as it was holding pressure. But I couldn't leave it in.

Two spares on my car now.

Ran my Cruze through the car wash at 12°F. Why would I wash my car at 12°F? Because as long as the temperature stays below freezing, the car will stay clean.

And the locks will stay frozen too!

I dunno if a key has ever actually been in the lock. Anyhow, exercised the doors, windows, hood, trunk, and gas cover after I got home to make sure everything still moves freely.

Y’all keep all that frozen tundra stuff up north where it belongs. 75 and raining around New Orleans. 😉
And humid as hell! I just got home from a year in Cenla. Had enough of that humidity.

Filled up with 93 for the first time. Was planning on 91 but the gas station I went to didn't have that. Also went and washed and vacuumed the whole car. Not really all too dirty but I had some bird crap on my hood. Shined the tires. Cleaned the windows. Inside was wiped about 2 weeks ago and still looks spotless.

I need to check all my fluids. Should've done that at the same time. I known I'm not due but it's running on dealership fluids. Oof

Last hand wash for the year for the Cruze (did the Volt last Thursday) - much more convenient now that I don't have to wax it!

Left my car at the body shop.

Got a call while I was sleeping... " We can't get it to shift it into revers."


Oh man manual strikes again. Can't be that holy though my first manual I pushed it out of a parking spot before I found out how to find reverse.

It was still pretty decent out today (was 72 yesterday - 64 today and stayed dry despite the forecast) so I got the Cruze also swapped over to the winter tires (which need to be replaced - two of them came out of the basement at 12 psi while the other two were still at 42), and added 2.5 gallons of DEF because it was at 4% and 120 miles remaining on the countdown.

Last car to change over is my brother's GS, but it won't be nearly as nice out - drops 20 degrees from yesterday and seems to stay there.

I don't even think about winter tires when it's still that warm out. This last fall, it was actively snowing while I was putting mine on 😆
