Straw and garbage

frozen driveway day

We woke up this morning with a frozen driveway.

The truck was frozen too, but once we jump started her she was ready for some trips to the barn.

A few loads of straw and most of our garbage got hauled before the ground thawed.

Hi Mark and Anna,

I FINALLY installed a battery cutoff switch in my old truck.

No more dead battery problems. Unless I forget :).

Works great. Many weeks between uses, no problem.
