Of course, we all know about the weather moving in. This is going to make moving mother out of her house on Thurs and into the new one on Fri kind of tricky. All this snow and wind may be a huge problem and we HAVE to be out by midnight Thurs.
My poor baby sister just can't catch a break. She has her car paid off in Oct, and she pulled into mothers garage and the motor made a couple of knocks, the car jumped, and she dropped all her antifreeze. I told her DON'T turn the car over again to move it out of the garage. She thinks it is a water pump that went out but that knocking noise tells me she may have thrown a rod and lost her motor. Or, perhaps a lifter went out.
Now, we need a way to haul it in Watertown to get it checked out before deciding what to do about repairs and with the ice and snow coming and the move ... I really am reaching breaking point too. Lord, they are under so much stress right now and this weather will be tying my hands too. :(
Today, I am way short on my calories. I just can't eat when stressed.
I got hold of a tow company that wanted to get her car tonight and have made arrangements for it to be dropped at a garage that Kevin and I get our repairs done at. I totally trust this guy. The Tow company did not want to do it tomorrow because of the freezing rain and snow coming into our area. One problem tackled. :(
Now, finally at almost 10 pm...I have to go out to the barn and unload some square bales of hay I just bought today for the horses. Nothing like waiting till the last minute. :)
