Should you have changed/repaired something on your car? Is it something that people usually do with their cars at the end of winter?

Did you make a relevant journey in your car? And if yes:
Without procrastination, would you still have made this journey in the car? Was it already bad weather when you started the journey?

Did your procrastination concern the maintenance of the car?

Is shoveling relevant?
Is ice-breaking relevant?
Is scraping ice from the car windows relevant?
Is brushing snow off the car relevant?
Is parking relevant? (sometimes it's harder to find a parking spot with snow)

Was your procrastination longer than one day?
Was is less than 4 hours? Less than 2 hours?

Are tire chains relevant? Did you have chains on for the winter, and then put off removing them? which meant that you still had them on when you encountered snow in the spring?

This one hasn't gone anywhere.

****SPOILER****

At the beginning of the semester, I bought a couple cinder blocks to make a bookshelf in my room, but procrastinated and left them in the trunk of my car (until this morning, when I realized I might need to actually use the car trunk). When bad snow and ice storms hit, the extra weight improved traction.
