Every big or decent size city has the two Interstate highway interchange, possibly having a high overfly ramp / exit.

We do and that is where my radiator blew on the way home last night during rush hour. Pulled over to the right side. Luckily traffic was bad and cars were going slow. VDOT road assist came by, I had already called the insurance company and a truck was dispatched. He left, said they see me on the cameras.

2 hours later, no tow truck, one stops, offers a tow for $50.00, I got home. Didn't bother calling the org tow company, asswipes.

Need to call the Insurance company and get my $$$ back.
This sure isn't the best time^h^h^h^h weather to be changing out a radiator. Well, except if you've just lost one...

Enjoy!

The Governor has declared a state of emergency here for tomorrow at 12:00 noon. If only I could be sure that no idiots would be on the roads, I'd be driving all over the place.

Yep - radiator did go boom. Crack in the plastic tank on passenger side (input from the motor). This is a replacement radiator that I changed out back in 2007. So now - radiator number 3 is in the car with 180K.

I took 1/2 a day off yesterday to fix it before the snow comes. We gonna get hit (at least for this area)

Are you all electric Ron? Was there an old heat pump story I missed?

Nothing here yet. There was some weather action mostly south of here though.

What a rip, we got 1/8 inch of ice and not even a 1/2 inch of snow. Weatherman is a lying sack of ****. Said Raleigh up to Norfolk was supposed to get the worst. My ass. :sneaky2:

On the streets, it's solid ice under that snow.

Va Beach has 480,000 people and 34 snow trucks. Most of those "snow trucks" are regular trucks converted with front plows.
