Moved out

Snow snow snow. The weather was not perfect but we managed to move to Abbotsford today. I picked up the U-Haul truck in Abbotsford at 12 o'clock:

I booked a 10 foot truck but they gave me a 14 foot for the same price ($19.95 instead of $29.95) because they didn't want to move trucks around just to get the 10 foot out.

I didn't make it all the way to the driveway because the cul de sac wasn't cleared and the snow was just too much. I thought 5 hours would be plenty to throw all our stuff in and unload it at the new place but we ran out of time. It was 3pm already so I decided to go and come back with the car to get the rest. I hurried up but I didn't make it back to U-Haul in time. 5:25. 25 minutes late... I dropped off the key and came back the next day. That old Dodge 3500 truck is thirsty! I put in gas worth $20 (37km)! So the bill came up to $67.82 ($0.69/km + $19.95 + $15.00 insurance + environmental fee of $1.00 + $3.08 GST and $3.26 PST)
The move cost me about $90 (diesel included).
