That typhoon really fucked the jet stream for the rest of us.
A 15F cold snap wouldn't have been so bad if it weren't for the constant 20mph wind that turned the oil into molasses, broke the air dryer, and froze the wiring apart. Got it towed because a rookie on what should have been a routine jump start road call decided the cab of the truck was a good ground (it's actually insulated by suspension, and the ground for the cab frame was up front, so nothing was making it back to the batteries), and then changed his mind and decided the ECM ground wire would be even better. Thank fuck I've got mostly breakers in the fuse panel, since he blew damn near every fuse before the ECM fuse took a shit. Enough breakers popped back over to give it a crank, and the engine actually bounced backwards, at which point I called the wrecker. They knocked $400 off the bill because the kid fucked up, but I didn't get to leave until my wallet was $1400 lighter.
As always, ask a truck driver anything. We have drivers and O/O's in these threads from around the world, so don't shy away from asking region specific questions, but be sure to mention what region you're asking about.
