I'd never considered a Subaru, but that really might be something to look into! I'll definitely have to hit Zoom up about it soon
Snow tires will. And I'll sell you my truck, except. . . I like it.

We need to hang out sometime!!

My parents get it turned on in November when the cold weather rule goes into effect, don't pay their bill, and get it turned off in March. So March-October we don't have hot water (which is a MAJOR reason I have a Plant Fitness membership! $10 a month for hot showers? HELL YEAH!). Except now they owe something like $5000 and have to pay almost $500 to get it turned on for the winter, and nobody here has $500 to get it turned on. So no heat, and no hot water.

But I just posted in the good news thread that my mom is starting to give way, and told me to TRY a space heater for a bit and see if the outlet gets hot (?)...if I move the smoke detector to the other side of my bedroom door. I'm really in shock. I think it's because I made her break ice in the dog's water bowls when she fed them lunch while I was at work (I love the 83F warm animal room at work right now...).
Well at least you two have come to some kind of compromise ???

Is their a law in areas where it gets below a certain temperature that they can't leave you without heat, regardless of your lack of money?

It depends on where you live. There is here, and we also have the option of donating on our heating bill to a heating assistance fund as well.

There just isn't enough coffee in the world.

And, I get to watch the first hour of the lions game at work, but I don't have anywhere to see the end.

Vent: why does holiday shopping bring out the worst in ppl? Also why can parents leave their kids at home when they are christmas shopping? A babysitter can't be that expensive can it? I feel sorry for the kids that have to be dragged around all day ... It's got to be very tiring and boring for them

The law here is that from November 1st to March 1st or until it's not freezing anymore, you cannot get gas or electric turned off for non-payment. But, if it's already off, you have to make a payment agreement and pay 1/12th of the balance to get it turned on. If you can't come up with 1/12 of the bill, you're out of luck.

It's a toasty 64F in my bed area right now

Been looking forward all day to curling up in bed with Rick tonight... finally go to lay down with him.

Wide. Awake. FIFTY BILLION THOUGHTS. ALL AT ONCE. The phone is dead so I can't even curl up with him and surf the web.
