Sorry to hear about your predicament. I can't help but wonder what became of the putt putt mobile. I noticed at the last meeting you were driving around in your father's BMW. If I wasn't still debating my own appearance at the meeting, I'd offer you a ride. Best of luck.

Ahh darn. Aren't car troubles the worst? I've had my fair share of them with my clunker. I hope your car can be fixed monday!

Hmmm, Got a 'check engine' on my wife's car this afternoon after digging it up from the pile of snow (it's about time, right?) and starting it... Not a good time/season for cars I guess

Yep, the Honda I drive is also giving me problems. It won't go into gear when it is initially turned on. I've had to turn it off, shift, turn on, drive a bit, repeat... several times to get the gears working.

Well, the good news is, my car is now fixed. Only needed to have 3 pulleys and 2 belts replaced So I will be at the meeting after all.

On the other hand, I talked to Kristina, and she won't be making it to this meeting. Instead, she'll be road tripping back home from Texas... I told her she had to go ditch collecting while she was there.

Actually, we sold the putt putt - my father insisted that it was a waste to have 4 cars and 3 drivers. Naturally, the minute we sold the spare, the one I was using broke... but anyway, the BMW is mine now

LOL, most of our cars always have the 'check engine' lights on. After a car reaches a certain age, I think something in those circuits just malfunctions and it lights up when there's no problem.... 99 times out of 100, they mean nothing. I hope that's the case for your wife's car, too.

Maybe the engine is just complaining about the snow.

o_O that does sound like a problem... you might need a new transmission. Good luck if that's the case - it might be cheaper to just buy a new car.

I'm sure this is not news to anyone, but we'll be looking at more snow for Friday. It's supposed to die down by nighttime, so it's likely to get cleared by Saturday. That's not going to do much for the temps though, it'll likely be in the mid 20's with wind chills in the single digits.

I've had it with snow. I'm starting a petition to start spring early... but I doubt the weather will listen Ugh...

Ah, well, maybe they'll cancel Friday's classes... I hate my Friday class, it's a 5-hour studio pain-in-the-rear. My attention span lasts 1 hour, maybe 2, but 5? I can't deal with that. Obviously I will never hold down a job with regular working hours.

I am so going to drop out of school and become an aquatic farmer one of these days. I swear.

Haha, I know exactly what you mean Amanda.

If we are expecting snow on friday I think it might be a good idea to use that snow date we talked about (next weekend). They don't always have the roads clean enough to be very safe the next day. What do you all think?

I second... Our baby sitter just bailed out on us this Saturday because of the snow :/... If it's going to be next Saturday, I'll be there for 95% sure... 5% is just for any unforeseen circumstances that may occur

The snow tonight/tomorrow is supposed to be over by late morning, and only 3-6 inches. I suspect the roads will be clean by Sat. afternoon. But I'll abide by the decisions of the group if we vote to meet next weekend instead

On the other hand, darn, I wanted to see if anyone had new plants to swap/sell me this weekend. I'm supposed to be getting in some of the new German hybrid swords (Kleiner Prinz, Tanzende Feuerfeder, Altlandsberg, Rose, and Franz Stoffels) either tomorrow or Saturday, and if I'm going to be getting out the potting supplies to pot those for my emersed tank, I might as well screw around with some of my other tanks as well :P

'Course, I also have to put together a pile of plants to fill an order from PurrFect Pets this Sunday - they're starting a couple big tanks to expand their planted tank offerings and decided to hire me to consult on plant choices, setup, tank design, and all that jazz. From the perspective of the club, this is a good thing, as I can push for the aquisition of species we might want to buy that aren't so common in pet stores. So... if there's any planted tank product you want to see a reasonably priced store in Milford offer, bring it to my attention.
