Rain clouds all morning and no rain. The guy on the radio this morning reported that skies would become clearer and clearer as the day progressed, as if that was a good thing. Maybe if you were trying to get a tan. Not if you're trying to feed 13 sheep on a dried up pasture. Or have an acre of pumpkin seeds that haven't sprouted. We need a summer storm.
In other news, I'm looking around at used cars right now. And I hate to do it. And I can't seem to find a good mechanic. And I just want a reliable car that will work when it rains and can haul 2 dogs and 50 lb. bags of chicken feed and gets good highway gas mileage. Am I asking for too much?
And I kind of have a deadline. Joey and I are taking a trip up to my parent's beach cottage on Lake Superior on July 12. The trip is more than 500 miles from our house and takes about 12 hours. And I don't think either one of our cars can make the trip. So is it worth it to put $2,000 in repairs into my car that is paid off? Or should I get a new car payment but save money with better gas mileage in a newer car?
