One benefit of being poor is the opportunity it gives you to expand your skill set- to learn new things, develop new talents. Such was the case on Wednesday when Timm did the brakes on the Maxima. Previously he had done some brakes on the van with Paul's assistance, but this was his first foray into the world of brakes alone. I was proud. Car repair is sexy.
It's 2 days later and everything's been shut down for the last 2 days. No work for Timm Saturday,church canceled today, tomorrow's still up in the air. We got about 4 inches, but then the wintry mix came down and froze it all. With temperatures still in the teens and 20's the roads are iced over. 2 bits of interesting news in the wake of the storm: human remains found in West Charlotte by some kids playing in the snow and a semi who skidded off I-77 and came within a foot or two of plummeting into Lake Norman. Can you imagine driving that beast?
And that's what's happening in my neck in the woods- back to you.
