Parking the New Car 
14th-Dec-2017 10:41 pm
The entertaining thing about parking the new car is -- not surprisingly! -- figuring out how to get it in and out of the garage. The Edge is built on the same basic platform as the Fusion; it's just a good bit taller. And the Fusion is a smaller car than the old Five Hundred. So it is actually a bit easier to get in and out of the garage, or at least it will be once I get used to exactly where the fenders are.

At the moment, my objective is not to scrape anything. :)

There's also a problem with the garage itself, as the mark on the floor that I use to gauge when I'm far enough into the garage to stop is currently obscured by junk. The solution to that is to clean up the junk. If we can clean up all of the junk, Gretchen can park her car in the garage again.

There is, however, a lot of junk to clean up.

Heh. Many years ago (it may have been before we built the garage), I made it very clear that there would always be overnight space in the garage for my car. (mod repairs to the garage or other very transient events.) My car (which is now 10 years old - how does that happen?) has only spent a very few nights at home outside.

I try very hard not to let cruft build up in the garage, and to keep the stuff that's in the garage sorted, but it still encroaches on my car occasionally.

Well, that has been our objective too, but it all went to heck when we had a pallet of books delivered here for ISFiC Press. For a variety of reasons, it took 18 months to get them out of here and off to the storage locker. During that time, things on that side of the garage have gotten out of control...
