The Twin Cities gets 20" of fresh snow, and what am I doing?

No, not skiing, because my car is broken down and I've been stranded at home since friday. I'll be lucky if I can get it to the shop tomorrow.

So a few weeks ago, I fixed my car to the tune of $2400. I drove my car to Iowa at 55mph to have the lowest bidder replace my transmission.

Well, there's been some new vibrations emanating from my car, which turn out to be a bad axle. The other one isn't far behind. The wobbly axle created damage on another component, so I'm looking at another $800 to keep driving my car.

Including the diagnostic fees, after this week, I'll have spend nearly $4000 within the scope of less than 2 months on my car.

Fuck. Say Goodbye to that trip to Norway.
