Are you on the list?No, I am not talking about the upcoming season of Heroes. Though I can't wait for that show to return to NBC in the fall.
On Saturday, I attended Green Fest in Elmhurst's Wilder Park. It was a small event with eco-friendly vendors displaying their products, tips and tricks. As we walked up the street, I noticed that Elmhurst Toyota had a few vehicles lined up on Prospect Avenue. One of the cars was a red Prius, the exact color I was looking for.
Back in an April blog, I mentioned that I had my eyes on a red Prius. After a brief discussion, I added my name to the waitlist for a new 2009 vehicle. The downside is that the waiting period is three to four months. The upside is that it could be as little as one month.
By Christmas 2008, I will increase my mileage from 13 to 14 miles per gallon, to 45. Consider my carbon footprint lowered again.
