#6052: The coldest day in two years

Well, the coldest day since the end of 2016. Mid-December we had -3 temps, but then it warmed up, and it didn't get bitter cold again until this past week. Freezing, yes, but not cold like it is now.

There was frost on the latchplate for the front door again last night. That cold.

They say it's supposed to be 15° tomorrow. Maybe it actually will get that warm. I hope so; I'd like to run the Jeep through a car wash to get all the CRAP off it from last week's snowstorms.


Anyway, hit Harbor Freight on my way home, and picked up a 25' drain augur which ought to do the trick. I'll try it out after dinner and see how it goes.

"Shut up, Wesley!" Wil Wheaton's career is based entirely on being Wesley Crusher from ST:TNG. Let's face it--he never did anything else of note, and Wesley Crusher was an annoying, whiny bitch who should have been spaced at the end of "Naked Now" after the way he barricaded the engine room with his stupid science project.

What Hangman teaches kids. Heh.

Last night's roast beef yielded tasty beef sandwiches tonight. We ate them with corn on the cob. Win.

Anyway, having had a nice dinner, now I get to go play with my new toy. This drain augur cost $5 less than the one from Ace, and can be hand-cranked--no need to use a drill to power it. Exactly what I was looking for. And in fact I got the last one they had in the 25' length, so that's good for me. It was $15, but the cashier kindly and on her own initiative rang it up with a 20% off coupon, which saved me a couple bucks on it. Woohoo!
