Greetings to all of my Mylot friends. Monday we had snow. We had about two inches and maybe a little more in certain areas of the yard. Most of it has melted. Today we are having harsh winter weather. We have heavy sleet that is steadily coming down. Thank goodness we have no where we need to go. Yesterday was an off day. We had a grocery curbside pickup and neither of our vehicles would start. Our truck is a 1995 Ford and this occasionally happens, but our car is a much newer 2018 and we were surprised to find it dead. We were late for our pickup , but my husband got our car going. Then last night my washer decided not to empty and drain water. Once again my husband got it resolved, but it took awhile. It’s a fairly new washer....a few years old. I don’t need anymore days like that one. How are you all doing ?

@LadyDuck It is a problem, I wonder what they will do? In the really cold parts of the world (like Siberia), even diesel engines won't start or run properly because the diesel becomes too thick so they have to keep them running all the time.

That’s crazy both your cars wouldn’t start especially with one being a 2018. Was the temperature really low so it may have zapped the batteries strength? I’m glad your husband was able to get the car and dishwasher running. Sounds like a very frustrating day!

It's really cold here but thankfully no snow or sleet. Sorry that you had to deal with cars that wouldn't start and a washing machine that decided to act up. At least your hubby was able to get both things fixed. Nothing new happening here except my daughter got a new job and that's exciting.

We had a problem just like you had with the washer. I fixed it. I was surprised I managed to work out how to fix it. Was it just the battery flat on the car or was it something else? One day last.week neither of my bikes would start. 2 flat batteries I think the alarms.were.responsible.so.I disarmed them.and both bikes have been fine since. It's been cold here. Snow was forecast. Weather warnings the lot. But thankfully we haven't seen any of it and I hope it stays that way. Even the snow doesn't want to come here. I wish Covid didn't want to come here. How am I doing. Bored out of my mind to be honest. Too cold for the garden Lockdown with nowhere open except food stores and nothing else to do As.well.as.a.travel ban which means it's risky even going out on one of the bikes. I don't want the sturdy custodians of law and order stopping me and giving me a fine because they don't seem my journey.essential. But motorbikes need to be run a lot which presents me with a dilemma. Tomorrow, motorbike run.
