Winter is Costing my Family

9:47 PM Thursday, March 17, 2011

My parents' car in the US has been snowed in half the time this winter... and it's always raining and snowing there still. I'm betting even a Ford Expedition cannot stand to remain outdoors in such snow. It would be dented and frozen and caving in with all the snow!

My sister has to literally dig the car through the snow every two hours or so, otherwise, the snow would turn to ice. It's such tedious work, she says, as opposed to just cleaning the car in the summer with a bucket of soapy water and hosing it down with a water pump. Add to her woes the fact that something seems to be wrong with the car's timing belt too. Oh well.

Is it an upside that gas is so high that they won't be doing much personal/leisure driving to save on costs?
