A Room

We woke up the next morning to find that it had indeed snowed and of course it was already turning to ice.

I thought I was absolutely going to freeze to death standing there as Wally scraped the windows. We found that the drivers side door was frozen shut and of course the windshield wipers were frozen in place. We really had no resources to free them up.

We headed out to the coffee shop for the hot coffee and the much needed restroom. We tried out my computer again. It simply will not start up. The lights come on but it doesn't seem to be getting enough power to start the drives and light the screen.

From there we went to see Dani and to see if we could get a couple of big cups of water from them to get our car door open and free the wipers. (We didn't manage to get the door working yet. It won't open from the outside, but it will from the inside.)

Since it was Sunday and I had no job to go to we were open to do... whatever... and trying to figure out what to do next.

We headed up to Value Village because Wally really needed some shoes. His are full of holes and wet feet in winter weather...well? Need I say more? It was kind of fun to "shop" a little although we were being very careful to find the best shoes for the lowest price. We found a pair for 5 dollars that he's quite pleased with.

We decided to go ahead and get a motel room for the night. We needed to get out of the cold.

We checked on weekly rates but there's just no way... I just think the prices here are outrageous... We did find a room for the night that we could stomach the price of.

I don't think I can tell you how nice it was for us... just having some privacy and a place to relax.. having heat, having a shower, having TV, a bed to stretch out on... after a week of having none of those things, it was like heaven...
