The Beauty Around Us

A No-Go

It got really cold last night. I saw local friends on Facebook recording temperatures as low as -20. At 8:00 am our thermometer read -11.9 degrees.

By noon the temperature had risen to 20 degrees, and I decided to run a couple errands. I put on my winter coat, hat, boots and gloves. I opened the garage door, opened our back door and walked across our partly snow-covered driveway to my car. I opened the driver’s car door and slid behind the steering wheel. I inserted the key into the ignition and turned it. I heard a click and nothing more. A second attempt to start the car yielded no sound at all. I have a dead car battery.  I guess those errands will have to wait!

 

UPDATE:  Well, I am surprised. Bob came home from work. I told him that my car battery was dead. He went out to the garage and tried the ignition. The car started! We did notice, though, that the clock in the car was 2 1/2 hours behind.  I took care of the errands I wanted to do earlier today.  Bob accompanied me.

    Get’s a bit “nippy” over there. Over here the temps have been down in the low 20’s, but not as cold as you guy’s. I must admit that when that “click” happens and you know that the battery is dead, it can be frustrating. I’ve had it happen to me before, and had to replace the battery with a new one. Funny thing is that your car started later on. A dead spot on the starter? Not sure. I would have Bob check the battery and see if it’s going bad. I even had that happen when we used to ride. That was not good. Good Luck.
