I got out of Chi-town late last night to avoid the winter storm bearing down It made for a long day, driving up and back with three meetings in between. But a 14 hour day was far preferable to the long day driving through freezing rain an a half foot or more of snow.
This morning I was up at 5:00, I don't know why.
I had to replace the battery in the boy's car this morning. That is what happens when you do not start a car with a five year-old battery for a month. I tried jumping it and charging it, but it was D-E-D dead.
When did car batteries get so expensive? I was thinking a battery for a ten year old Honda Civic would run in the neighborhood of $50. It was about twice that. I blame Obama, just because I can.
