    Hasn't been a good day, but for once I can say I am glad the weather forecast was incorrect and we didn't get any snow. I hooked up the plow last night anticipating snow this morning. My wife got home from work and went to bed around midnight, about 1am she heard a loud popping or bang and woke up to an orange glow from the other side of the garage. She woke me up and I went outside to discover the cab of my truck fully involved with fire. I'm thinking a good wash and wax is not going to fix the problem. Luckly it was far enough from the garage that it didn't catch that on fire.

    Not sure what caused it fire dept said it would be inlikely to ever tell since everything is melted. It is a diesel and I did have it plugged in so I am thinkking it might be something related to the block heater, however the breaker it was plugged into never tripped so I have some doubt about it being that. Never got a recall notice for cruise control, but I never used it either. I did have a new fuel injector wiring harness installed about 4 months ago? Hopefully I will meet with the insurnace adjustor by Friday. It only had 85,500 miles on her and was paid off. I've got good insurance, but I will never get what I could have got for it by selling it and I need to stick with the diesel for towing my camper and flatbed. There is nothing for low mileage diesels in my area that aren't an arm and a leg.
