OMG I HATE SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so my son had dance tonight at 5:45pm and the blizzard we were forecasted to get was not expected to start until 8pm, so I took him. On my way there I noticed my battery light was on, so I called my dad to ask what it meant. (i'm completely and 100% car illiterate, if it weren't for my dad I wouldn't have a working car ever) He said if my car started without an issue and was running fine then I probably had some loose cables, or my alternator was going bad. Either way the battery is brand new, less then a year so he said if I wasn't having any light dimming, and the car wasn't stalling I was fine for the trip I was making and we'd check it after all the weather cleared. So my son's dance class ended, still no snow yet, and I begin driving home. It starts to ice on the way, so I had to go rather slowly on the freeway and it was taking longer then normal. All of a sudden everything in my car just cut off, no warning or anything. Lights, radio, heat, and wipers all stopped working at once. I had an oh shit moment and cut across 2 lanes to get off at the exit I had almost passed. When I applied my brakes as I was getting off on the ramp my engine died, and by the time I came to a stop at the bottom I had no power at all, not even enough to put my hazard lights on. So I was stuck, in the middle of the off ramp, from a very heavily populated freeway. To make matters worse almost as soon as I stopped it started snowing like crazy, along with the ice so there went visibility. I called my dad in tears and he came as soon as he could, 45 minutes later. To make matters even worse my cell phone completely died after I called him, so if anything went wrong I was just 100% screwed. He ended up pushing me to a gas station and a friend came to help tow me home. Turns out my alternator wasn't going bad, it was completely shot. 2.5 hours later, with 5 inches of snow on the ground, 1/4 inch of ice and 40mph wind gusts I finally made it home. And my son was a trooper the entire time, even though I know he was bored out of his mind... I feel better now, thanks for listening!!!
