No hate... In fact, why don't you drive a mile or so for me!

Actually the temperature is only half the battle. After it warms up we still have to wait for a couple of heavy rain storms to wash the salt off of the road.:eek:

In the mean time we remind ourselves that "patience is a virtue.":stupid:

Your cars look great, Randy! I had the '72 out of the garage and on the driveway a little earlier this afternoon to let her run for a while (no license plates, so she's not street legal yet). It's 51 degrees and sunny here in the south metro Denver area, but there's a chance of snow in the forecast for tomorrow.

As one of the southern-most folk on the board, I grimaced today as thunderboomers rolled through. Temps a balmy high 60s to low 70s (F) but wet. I drove the Z on Thursday, saw 90, got my fix. Reminded myself that April 6 is next track day and backed off.

I really sympathize with you folks up north. Spent 18 months in Minnehelpless and discovered that -50 ain't for this suthern boy. Froze a new battery brick solid. I moved to Texas before the next freeze season. Never regretted it.:stupid:

C'mon down.

"not as good as sitting in the seat and driving a Z-but close!" One of these and a warm fire is the best we can hope for.:(

hey! i had one of those! i don't think it had an emblem on it though.

With 71 degrees, why weren't you driving the TR-6 Randy? :classic: I drove Lime Z in the AM and then took "The B" out for a spin with the Mrs. in the afternoon. Yellow Z is at the Dr. at the moment, or I would of took it out too!

Being orginally from Minnesota, I had enough cold weather growing up there to last a lifetime! Can't beat the warm weather down here in the South!!

Nice new avatar photo Randy!

Thanks Doug,

The TR is also at the Dr's.......should be back next week.

A little off topic, but the 356 is finally media blasted and body work should start soon, hopefully she will be back by April. (Here's a photo)

After a day like yesterday I am so over Winter....(I know, I know, we have really mild Winter's, but it's still Winter) and I'm ready for the time change.

Cheers,

Hey Randy,

Just for the counterpoint. Here are a couple of shots of downtown Disraeli, Quebec. I was sitting in the local pizzeria having lunch after a hockey game when I read your post. These shots are when I walked out the front door from my pizza in disgust.

Hence the minor hate :sick: and the major slashing a guy took the next game :stupid:.

Doesn't help that i've had to dig my 4x4 Tahoe out from getting stuck in the snow twice in the last month.

On that point, the wife said she could learn to appreciate country music. Prepare the extra room. We move in next week. ROFLROFLROFL

It's a balmy 35 on the northcoast, and I still haveat least 2 months of stuff to do on the car. So as long as the kerosene holds out, I"m OK.

But thanks to the old reliable Ohio weather, we'll get those two or three good showers by the end of April, if not by the end of March. I'll have the winter Z parts bills paid off by then.

thxZ

Check out the Tahoe and the Sequoia in front of the garage after one dump...

I can not even imagine having that much snow.......WOW...Tennessee would be closed for a month or longer.

We get upset if the temps drop down to 30 degrees, I don't think I could make it where you guys live.

Here's what's just around the corner though......
