Silver linings

Today, I was driving into work in my hubby’s truck. It’s his pride and joy. I managed to both get a flat tire and lock my keys inside the truck at a gas station, with my face mask also inside. Oh, and it’s 19 degrees. At least it’s sunny. FML

Pretty sure 19 Fahrenheit feels colder though.

If it's that cold, you likely have something you can cover your face with to be able to go into the gas station, buy a mask and use the phone to call your job to let them know you'll be late and call a lock smith. You can probably wait in the convenience store where it's warm. Once you get into your car, go to the air pump that's at the gas station and put air in the tire if you're able to. You may be able to fill it up enough to either get to work, to a mechanic, or back home. If you're not able to get to work in the truck, take an Uber. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Celsius or Fahrenheit? Those are very different temperatures and depending where you are 19 celsius could feel super cold.

2 Days ago my car wouldn't start because the battery froze and I walked to work only to find out had I had the foresight, I could have asked a coworker to pick me up. It was -19 @ the time and that night went down to -39. The 19° totally brought up memories since mine was -19. Can't wait to move back home...

The good news? You didn't wreck it. IF it's his pride and joy, I think he'd be furious if that had been the case. A flat tire is easy to fix. As for locking the keys in the car? Hopefully using a slim jim or a locksmith won't leave any permanent damage.
