Feeling superhero-y

Who's an amazing tough Alaskan kick-ass gal who can change a really flat tire at 30 below? Me!

Roawr!

Two people stopped and offered their help, but I wasn't really interested in standing around watching them do what I could do, so I thanked them and sent them along. I had a cheater bar, so loosening the nuts was no trouble, and I've already put the car up on the jack several times now, and I have an amazing cold weather coat and fur hat, so I didn't even really get cold.

My phone, however, was not as tough as I am, and stops recognizing my SIM card when it gets too cold.

It was Sunday evening, so no one was open to take a tire to, so I put on the donut and took the car out of AWD (which requires moving a fuse under the hood) and limped home with my hazards on.

My car handles like crap with a donut and 2WD, but we got home safely.

I think I'd be curled up in a ball shivering with your SIM card at 30 below. Maybe 10 below, and some of that windchill, is about the coldest I've been out in, and that was plenty cold.

Glad you got home safe!
