Jump start time!

And then a new battery.

Assuming it isn't the alternator.

Always assuming that.

It's cold enough this morning it's probably the battery. And hey, it's really easy to find out if it's the alternator.

Sure. I'm just waiting for the manager to get in to try to jump it.

I'd offer to come by and give you a jump... but I'm at work too, and I walked to work. So I have no idea if my car will start either. :)

If you wait long enough, it might warm up enough you'll be able to start the car yourself.

Your car needs a heating pad, it's too cold.

That may be a little premature.

I got my battery tested when it first started to get cold about a month ago, and it was in great shape. But this morning I had trouble starting my car. Took 3 tries, actually. I'm taking that as a sign that it's just too damned cold for things to work right.

I'll sell you my portable jumpstarter for fifty bucks! I don't need it now that I sold my unreliable car.

Did your car ever start? I need to know!

Still at home waiting for the manager to get in to help me find a jump. If that doesn't work, the starter or alternator is dead.
