I thought I was ready for winter. Sure, I had plenty of wood. Yes, I had my bag of Winter Melt and the shovel handy. I had the truck inspected and prepped for everything, almost.
The one thing I forgot to do was lube the rubber seals in the car door. Whoops.
Last Thursday night, when we got our first winter weather, I ended up banging on the door with my little lunch cooler to break the ice, and it worked. Needless to say, I sprayed the rubber the next day with olive oil. Standing outside, in the wind and snow is not my idea of a good time.
