My day so far
 
My brand new Jeep with 3600 miles on it wont start so I cant go to work. I cant go to work, so I cant bring the baby to day care. Since I cant bring the baby to day care, I have to stay home. Since its snowing out, I cant get a signal on tv because the dish is out.
All this before 7.30 this morning
Awesome

Sorry to hear that....not a great way to start the day! Please let us know what the problem was once you get it fixed.

I never have a problem with the snow taking down my DirectTV signal only during real big thunder storms and that usually only for about 5 minutes, is the dish on the roof? If you have a DVR its time to get caught up on stuff you recorded and Fios does rock (not that the company gives me paychecks or anything :whistling: ) !

Yeah, we usually dont have a weather related outage, but its that thick, sticky snow so its like an inch thick on the dish. Yeah, I do have a DVR and its chuck full, so Ill be able to take care of some shows I have saved up. Or just troll around WF all day :wavey:

Not sure whats wrong with the Heep though. It starts up but runs real rough and dies when I put it into gear. MIL light is on so Ill just let the dealer deal with it. AAA is on its way to tow it up there

sounds like the iac has some crap on it,,,,, idle air control motor.

I'm SO sorry about your Jeep. Hearing this stuff terrifies me! Let us know what happened!

I also have Directv on my roof and if it gets a lot of heavy wet snow it goes out as well. Rain is the worst though.

Hope the baby doesn't puke or poop on you! That will just be the cherry

I agree - especially with that whole paycheck thing!:whistling:

I thought I was the only one in the company that drove a Wrangler.

Got the Heep back last night. The tech said that when they got it, the thing fired right up. Checked for codes and it was a misfiring cylinder. They reflashed something and took it for a drive around without any issues. They opened some sort of database track for it to see if it is any know issues about. I took it home and drove it to work today with no issues. Hope this isnt a recurring thing. We shall see
I think the thing that annoyed me the most was this was the first snow weve gotten since I got my new tires on and I wasnt able to play around in it
