Good day, despite the little "brake" down.

McLean is as you would expect, a lot of mix of crusty/slushy snow and bare dirt/mud in areas that see a lot of sunlight.

The "brake" down was a broken brake line in the middle of an ice puddle. Tried to crimp the line but to no success so I drove from well inside McLean to Haysboro with hand brake and engine braking. The Jeep sure slows down good with engine. Only went through 9 traffic lights. Nearly hit the tool box in my garage though. Thankfully Dave @ Broken Axle had some MC lines in stock and he dropped them to me during their relocation of the shop. Thanks Dave.
If anyone had brake checked me or cut me off they would have had a Jeep symbol embossed in the back of their vehicle.  >:(
