If my notes are correct, tomorrow will be our 6-month anniversary of being car-free. Hooray!
I knew that January would be the test of my resolve, and this January was one fine test. But I’m still happy with our decision not to keep a car around.
There was one day, one icy slippery-sidewalk day, when I thought twice about it as I flailed my way to the bus stop. (And then kept on thinking twice as I flailed my way back from the bus stop, having forgotten about holiday schedule changes. That day stunk.) But one grouchy day in six months is not worth having a car for. I thought the rain and cold might do me in, but in fact, I kind of like short bike rides in the rain, and I have yet to meet a cold day that my balaclava can’t handle just fine.
By and large, life’s been more fun without a car.
