School opening was delayed until 10:00 AM. On a normal day it takes me about 17 minutes to get to school. Went to my car at 9:00 and started it. It sounded funny, but I thought "it's just cold(9 degrees, actually). Funny sound continued. Got out to scrape ice, left car running. Sound changed, sounded more normal for a bit and then the dash lights flickered and it went off and won't come back on.
Oh. And there's a smell. Nearly an hour later I can still smell the smell on my hands-- I'm praying I haven't burned up another engine.
I KNEW I shouldn't try to make it in for that 50 minutes of lecture - school opening was delayed to 10 AM. My street looks like solid ice.
But the professor is a tyrant and talks smack to the class and to other classes about anyone who doesn't risk life and limb to get there for whatever paltry time is allowed.
I am worried sick. :(
