I'm sorry, this is a rant.
It's COLD! I don't mind the cold, but it's flipping COLD out tonight, wind blowing 30mph and 11F degrees.
I went out earlier to start my truck, and RRRRrrrRRRRrrrr...click click...DEAD! It's April for cripes sakes!! Went to start 2 of the 3 tractors and
got the same damn response! How infuriating! We're running good fuel, with winter additives, and it's just so damn cold nothing will start!
Got the big tractor going (she'll start even if it's -100F below zero), and then struggled with the middle tractor. Finally got the truck going,
but had to put a charger on it for a couple hours first. Ran it for an hour and then had to pull it up to the house to plug it in. Seriously??? I
have to plug the truck in...in mid APRIL???? It's spring, for cripes sakes!!! This is ridiculous!!
Got 10" of snow today, and 6" last night. Temps have been in the low teens and single digits. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE SPRING!! DAMMIT!!
It's almost like it's early February right now, and freezing ass COLD, but it's not early February...it's mid-APRIL!!
So tonight I will run tractors, and trucks, all night long just to keep them warm...because it's so freaking COLD out right now! Probably waste tens
of gallons of fuel with stuff just idling because nothing will start tomorrow when the temps drop down to zero or below.
GRRRRRrrrrr!! Sorry, just ranting, but I was going to plant last weekend and this weekend...now, there's no way! All I'm going to do is help
people get unstuck from all the stupid mud, snow, ice and other BS from all this COLD! Unbelievable!
