Stupid Van

I drove Little Ripples to day care yesterday morning.  The van started just fine.  After being inside the day care for 5 minutes.  I went to leave to take Big Ripples back home and get her on the bus and the van wouldn't start.  The battery looked like it was starting to corrode around where you clamp jumper cables on.  That battery was just under 2 years old. 

Luckily my step-dad was able to come jump the van and we dropped it off at the mechanics right away.  $200 later my van is back in working order.  Hopefully the battery lasts longer this time.

  1. That stinks! Usually car batteries last a good 7 or 8 years. Good thing your stepdad was able to come help you out.
