The last 2 weeks mother nature has had some fun here.We have had lows down to 8 and highs the next day of 60.We had a snow storm of talcum powder that packed into ice in an hour.On top of this i got a cold (damn kids )and am on round 2 with it now.
The second cold nite killed my jeep and truck battery less than 2 month ago i had my little trucks battery died.I had been using my daughters battery from her spare car my luck held she decided to take her spare to work and finds out i had stole her battery.Yep it was 24 outside and she wants me to"PUT IT BACK".I knew i should charge her rent.I have 3 vehicle with dead batteries a cold and the high was going to 39.
I make it for a few days by putting my camping battery in the floor of my jeep running jumper cables out the window under the hood to the bad battery.I looked like a real redneck but it worked.I had a good weekend selling BBQ after the snow but 300 dollars for car batteries just wasn't going to be possible.A buddy of mine said try PULL A PART so Monday it was in the 50s i felt better so i went down found 3 for 20$ each they we less than a year old got a set of spark plug wires for the truck and a rotor also.Got home put the batteries in changed the plug wires out and spent less than 75$.The brake rotor will be put on when i have a tire fixed next week the old one has been warped for 3 years no rush.
Now this week we have had a lite icing and up to 3 inches of snow possible tomorrow.If something breaks I wont be surprised it the weather,the season ,and my luck!!
