Bass Harbor Marsh snowfield
Todays potd: made at 2:04 up the street at the Bass Harbor Marsh- I had grand plans to shoot some of the "pure as the driven snow" snow drifts at a couple of different locations this afternoon but when I went to start my little grocery-getter-diesel it didn't even click, although the radio and lights were working... so that worried me, not typical. It's getting up there in the old mileage department but this was a symptom that I would not expect. So even though I was all geared up to hit it and would have just taken the lady's truck I figured to at least take a look under the hood- and this was what I found:
this should not be here-
So I figured the starter had shorted or something and I set up a hair drier to evaporate the snow that would make it not go, and headed out to shoot for a bit in the lady's truck. Later when I'd gotten back and checked it again it turned over in the weakest of ways so at least nothing was ruined I figure, just gotta give it a jump, so here's what I figure happened: in the 60 knot blizzard winds of the other night snow piled up in the engine compartment and shorted the battery or the starter to the point where it drained it to a trickle- crazy I know, but anybody else have any ideas? Whatever- have a good one champs- Nate!
