Snow here. Nothing but snow, snow, snow... wait, scratch that. Add in about two generous helpings of sleet, and you have the weather here. They had been calling for 9-12 inches by today, but with the sleet and all, it's actually about 4-6 here. Still, it's no fun driving on it. Not at all!
Kathy got herself a new car yesterday. It's a 2002 Toyota Prius; you know, one of those electric/gas hybrids. Nice car, but she haggled like a madwoman to get the financing to a suitable rate. Seems she was about 10 points shy of having the rating for a prime rate. In any case, you can read all about it on her blog *points helpfully to my daily reads bar on the right*===>
I guess I should mention that I also got a "new" car out of the deal. We traded in my Chevy POS for the Prius, and Kathy has given me her 1992 Toyota Corrola. I just about cried when we left the dealership yesterday, yet I'm pretty stoked that I have a good little car now. There's a little bit of rust around the rear right wheel well, but otherwise it's bodily sound, and it's got a moon roof. :) Need I mention that the gas mileage is better than the Impaler? All in all, it was a pretty good day, if you leave out the violent arguement with the finance officer and the icily craptastic drive home.
