I bought snow tires for the first time this year, after last year’s roads were so treacherous. So, this season? So far, no snow. And definitely not the bitterly cold spell being experienced in so many places. We’ve been enjoying daytime temps of 7 C or 45 F and not even our usual rain!
The rodent population still seems to think it is very cold, though. A couple of weeks ago, the dashboard lights on my car went wacky. And then I found myself going slowly and dangerously through an intersection, not being able to accelerate. The cause? Chewed wires that cost me around $400 in repairs! We could see that the rat (presumably) had brought branches in and was building a nest on top of the warm engine. Did you know that many auto manufacturers are now using soy-based insulating materials for wiring? So, not only is my car a warm haven, but even the meals are provided!
Hope you too have a warm haven and good food in stock!
