Why, Michigan, why??? – Mid-Michigan Chevy Girls

So it snowed on Monday. It’s April. This just shouldn’t happen! Stupid Michigan weather. At some points, it wasn’t so much snowing as it was slushing. Bleah. And I had places to go! So I really hoped that the Cruze would handle well on yucky roads. It passed the test! It even alerted me that the roads might be icy and to be careful. (Aww, thanks Cruze!)

It was great on the road and, as a result, I was able to go out to lunch with a friend, and out for some shopping afterward and the only cursing I had to do was at the yuckiness falling from the sky! The restaurant almost always has a packed parking lot, which stresses me out. Backing up is especially bad because there just never feels like there is enough room to maneuver. The Cruze has sensors in the back that will alert you with beeping if you start to get too close to something! Helpful! It definitely helped with parking lot stress. (See the video below, I recorded a demo later when I wasn’t actually stressed out about backing up. A much better time to do it!)

Later in the day, I went to pick up my grandma to bring her back to my house for a private screening of Killing Kevin. She’s been waiting impatiently for it to be done because she supplied one of the props and she wanted to see it in action. I found her a couple of XM Radio stations that play Classical music so she was happy. Speaking of the XM Radio. There are so many stations! All different kinds of music, plus some talk radio (not my thing, but hey, if you’re into it, it’s there!) So far I’ve been happiest that there’s a 90’s station. Yay!
