An eye on the sky
This week is crazy-busy! My work schedule is totally packed ... we have lots of social plans (a good thing, but it lends to the sense of busy-ness!) ... and we're constantly keeping an eye on the weather. Why are we so interested in the weather? Simple ... because as of last Saturday, my sweetie's car isn't safe to drive in the rain, because the driver's side windshield wiper mechanism is busticated!! The poor Honda Civic is now about 13 years old & it also needs new CV boots & an air filter & transmission flush ... so, rather than spend $900 to keep it limping along, we've decided to go looking for a new car. We just have to plan around precipitation, which means I'll have to give him a ride to and from work. We dodged a bullet today ... and tomorrow looks clear, and our plan is to look for a car on Saturday! Anyone have any experiences with recent models of Honda Civic Hybrid, Ford Fusion Hybrid, or Toyota Prius? They're at the top of our list to try!
