I got a nice walk in the rain because my truck overheated yesterday. So today I took it to the mechanic and walked home in the rain. I am happy to report that my snake boots are totally waterproof. I Snow-Sealed them last fall, and this was their first real test. I waked in puddles almost up to my ankles and there was nary a leak. My feet stayed warm and toasty.
So the truck is getting a new water pump for $450.00. Hopefully that will fix him up and he will run for another billion miles with no further problems. Go Nippy go!
