    Well after work today I did get mine out and come to find out the solenoid had gone bad from last year. I installed the spare I had and low and behold it works again.
    I have to work at the shop tomorrow so it will stay on the truck and if I have some time there I will clean it up and give it a good look over

    The forecast hasn't changed much over night here. I'm in Lower bucks right along the I95 corridor. Were right on the line between a coating -2" and 2-4" but it looks as if there will be little accumulation on the pavement, most will be on the grass and trees..

    anyone else in Delco have their blades on? The weather reports dont sound to promising for us but what gets me is how it wasnt supposed to get so cold and switch over to snow till later this evening. Good for us maybe?
