Last winter was rather mild compared to this one. We hire someone to shovel our walk and drive and they have already been to our home more this winter then they were the entire winter last year. In fact March of 2012 we had a record breaking heat wave, which I did not mind one bit. We had temps in the 80s.
This (winter) year not only has it been colder but my car has been down twice. First it was a cam shaft sensor and then the struts so I have been without my car for three weeks. I am already cutting back on my errands because of the weather, but then without a car...I have to wait at the job site looking out the window at the above scenery waiting for hubby. Poor hubby is picking up both Mari and I and giving us rides home. My baby boy works second shift and though they could use a second car, it just is not in the budget yet. Mari left her car in NYC as it would have cost more to get it fixed and bring it. I know she misses her car as I almost hugged mine when I got it back! :-)
1. What kind of transportation do you have access to? We have very limited bus service. It doesn't even cover where her job is, and the hours are limited, then the bus runs every hour, so if you miss it you must wait for the next one, and only till 6 pm. I get out after 6 many evenings.
2. Do you car pool or share a ride to conserve gas/energy?
Thank you for your visit. I sincerely hope you visit Amanda at two questions Thursday and join in the conversation there. It's already buzzing. Take care, stay healthy and God bless!!
