Ran out of gas...

Well, hello again. What a day. I ran out of gas on my way home for lunch. I know, I know...We had blizzard conditions when the light came on last night and it was below 0'F so I decided to wait and look where it got me. So I walked to the gas station, (mind you it was 20'F, with 8 " of snow on the ground and it was still snowing and the sidewalk was a sheet of ice). Well they do not lend out gas cans any longer because people do not bring them back, soooo I had to buy a 1 gallon plastic can for $9.99 and then fill it with the gallon of gas it would hold. So then I walk back to the car and much to my dismay the funnel that comes out of the can will not allow for the gas to come out so it is pouring out around the rim of the funnel. Well, my hands were freezing and wet from all of the gasoline, so I just hurried up and finished putting in what I could and then wiped the side of the car off with the snow and the paper towels the lady at the station so graciously gave me and loaded the can into the car and drove straight to the station to fill er' up. $46.77 it took. Yikes!

So I drive home and guess what, the darn snowplow made a mound in front of my driveway so that now I have to jump this darn thing but I guess my car didn't have it in her so I got stuck. Yep, I was wreaking of gas, cold, wet and hungry and now my car was stuck. So that is how part of my day went. How about you? :-) The rest of the day was fine, so I am thankful for that.


  1. That really sucks and I feel your pain. I almost ran out of gas on the highway in bumper to bumper traffic. The only thing I can say is God was looking out for me that day. I hate Winter - needed to say that.

  2. Wow, I guess I should feel blessed not to have been in the midst of a slew of traffic. lol I second the hating winter part.


Thank you for stopping in and saying hello. You have made my day! Enjoy yours!
