Well, so far the great snow storm of the winter has turned out to be a non-event here.  My deck is bare and dry.

Gary, how is that new-car feeling?  6L/100km works out to just under 40 miles per imperial gallon.

Barb, it looks as if we might make it for your appointment after all.

Have a great weekend, Everybody.

Alexander, I'm looking at a glorious sunset and just thinking of what's supposed to be behind it.

I've had a good day.  Made the round trip to Toronto - about 300km - on less than half a tank of gas so my mileage is around 6L/100km.  It's often less than 6 in the summer.  I dropped my '95 Tercel off at the Toyota dealership and went off to have lunch with a friend.  I got a call before we were finished lunch that it was ready to be picked up.  Nothing but routine service maintenance required.  This car has gone through all that 16 Canadian winters can throw at it, and last summer it was ridden hard and put away wet many times while I was moving.  Total cost for the day including gas and lunch, less than $300.  I love my Tercel.
