Our sweet old car just runs and runs and runs, which is a good thing because it’s still not a great time to replace it.

Last Friday, we pulled into the ice skating rink parking lot and turned it off.

The motor was still running.

He hit the Prius’s power button again.

Still running.

It IS in park… What… It took about six tries, with me wondering out loud just what we were going to do if it didn’t before it finally complied.

Is it KitchenAiding us? I asked, stunned.

No problems since. But it’s going into the shop after Christmas.

Meantime, the new mixer made it to the Central Valley this morning and is set to be delivered tomorrow, now that it’s outraced that huge bomb cyclone storm.

You all stay safe out there for me, y’hear? Please? So you can have yourself a Merry Little Christmas, alright now, sounds good. And Happy Hanukkah, too.

Edited to add, especially for those in the storm: a raccoon trying to catch snowflakes.

Merry Christmas. FWIW, this may not be a fatal flaw. We also have electric cars, different manufacturer, different model, but my husband’s 2012 did the same thing a few months ago. It was a battery which caused the problem, and it was a cheap fix. Probably $150 bucks if I remember correctly. Hoping your repair is as simple and cheap.

Electronics are scary. Ours act up regularly. And yeah, I had the microwave turn on when I opened it, also.

Be well.

Son couldn’t get key out of car last night. Locksmith flew by, wiggled the key with his locksmith finger magic, handed him the key and said might be the whole electronic board is blown up, might be the cold. Happy holidays and flew off.

It’s happening everywhere.

Happy Hanukkah, merry Christmas Eve to you. I’ll tell you later about signing up for the once a month make your own chocolate package I got from the Alchemy. Cool!
