The weather predictions said it would be cloudy and -9C (15,8F) here this morning and how wrong they were, The sky was clear and it had fallen down to -19C (-2,2F). That’s not even close!! and like always it was much colder here where I live than anywhere else. One of the car doors is now frozen to the car and can’t be opened at all but the lock works. The other one can be opened and closed but the lock is frozen and I can’t even put the key in it 🙂 This always happens when it rains heavily just before the temperature falls below 0C (32f). It’s a good thing that the door that can be opened is the one I get in to the car 🙂
I also get another problem when the temperature fall this much, the oil pressure in my cars has problems reaching its levels and that is my fault because I haven’t changed the oil this year as I should have. If this had happened in a sitcom we would probably have laughed so much 🙂 The character’s problems are usually normal ones (not always of course) but sort of twisted insanely much. So I came to think of what I have been reading in different blogs about problems we’ve had now when it is cold everywhere.
People in sitcoms usually never have enough money so they try to fix the problems by themselves. In a sitcom I would most likely have tried to warm the old oil in my car by placing an electric heat pad close to the oil and the heat pad would most likely start to burn and set my car on fire 🙂 An alternative would be that there was something wrong with the extension cord and my garage would burn down instead 🙂 But firstly I would have struggled with the doors for a few hours of course 🙂 Cindi had car problems too now when it was as coldest in the US, her alternator broke down. So in a sitcom she most likely would have had all her dogs with her in the car (and they would be bigger than most of those she have. She would most likely have used her dogs like sled dogs so they would pull her home 🙂 An alternative would be that she called a towing company and then have to get all her dogs in to the towing truck to get home again 🙂
Joyce have had freezing problems with her pipes but everything went well but in a sitcom it most likely wouldn’t. I can see how she would try to heat up the pipes with a blowtorch 🙂 A pipe would burst and her home would be flooded or the alternative would be that she set fire to her home 🙂 But like all sitcoms we all would have a happy ending somehow 🙂 Naturally we all would write about our accidents in our blogs so the sitcom could be called Friends by blogging 🙂 To be honest, life in sitcoms seems rather terrible to be honest so I’m very happy life isn’t like that 🙂
Nova looks as me suspiciously every time I call her or comes close to her, she really doesn’t like me right now. To be honest, the other dogs don’t see me as especially nice to be around either. Nova has one of her ear infections again and now I must drop those drops in her ear every day and she really doesn’t like that. The others just have filthy ears so I have cleaned them too and now they all keep their distance to me 🙂
The fire is burning in the stove and will continue to do so all evening. It will snow all night they say and at the moment it’s the same kind of snow we had yesterday so I don’t think we’ll have much on the ground tomorrow. I don’t mind the snow as long as it doesn’t get as cold as it was last night. Now it’s time for a cup of tea and a couple of sandwiches.
Have a great day!
