I need a morale boost :(

Recommended Posts

Damn winter just keeps hanging on :( it's april 9th and they are predicting like 6 to 8 inches of damn snow this coming weekend :mad: Everytime I think the weather is starting to get nicer I get all fired up to get my Z out soon, then we get more of this sh!t :( It bothers me to still see my poor baby parked. The horrible thought of should I sell actually crossed my mind :finger: Not good. Sorry for coming here to vent, but this weather is really bumming me out :(

Any other northern Z owners here feel free to share your frustrations as well :rolleyes:

Know what you mean. Last two weeks it's been really nice during the work week and windy / cold on the weekends. Keeping me from doing varnish work the boat while I wait for my rolling chassis to get back from the body shop.

This weekend is supposed to be warm and sunny here though. Hang in there! Good weather's coming.

Yea my parents told me about that. Actually my z is supposed to head up there this weekend for paint but cuz of the snow it might not. This crap just reminds me of having to shovel the snow off the field before baseball games back in High School. Global warming my arse!

Same here too, I'm ready to come out of hibernation and Old Man Winter just keeps hanging around. Maybe I can get him to go visit Arkansas. Bill likes visitors!

Whats snow?

Don't listen to 'em Jared. The winter we just had would ruin Arkansas...and you do it every year. It takes a real man to live up north.

Jared - You are not alone....many of us only have pictures of our Zeds to remind us of the good days ahead...

Sit back, crank the volume (to drown out the whine of the snow tires on your DD) and think of warm temperatures, sunshine, and cruising....It's closer than you think. (At least that's what I tell myself...)

The pool's just a little too chilly for me, but my wife had her friends over last week and they all were frolicking in the pool....

I moved to AZ from Alaska where I lived for 29 years so I know what you're going through... cabin fever. Summer's on it's way!

It's been a long, cold, wet winter here in Western Oregon as well. Nothing like what you folks up north are dealing with, but worse than recent years here. But they're claiming it should start to break later today, mid-60s tomorrow and mid-70s on Saturday. I can't wait.

Of course, the rain will probably return next week...

And down here in the Inland Empire temps are supposed to reach the mid 90s this weekend. The joys of Southern Cal. Now I need to start working on the air conditioning in the Z. But, this post is probably not a morale booster for our northern friends.

This weekend it' supposed to finally warm up here as well. Into the low 70's!!!! We have had blizzards the last two fridays , with several inches of snow at a time. I can't freakin wait. Gonna take the ZX out of storage. I keep the z insured all year long but have driven her sparingly this winter, whenever the snow melted.

We don't have the cold here in the North West like you do up in the North country . But we get our share of rain. Global Warming my arse . It has been 10* below normal for the past 3+ months. Although not that cold comparatively like Canada. We haven't seen the sun for several months. Supposed to clear and hit in the 70s this weekend and NorthWest Z is having a cruise and I can't wait. I am getting ''shack nasty''. Right now it is 55 and raining again. I cant keep the damn ducks out of the swimming pool and I have about worn the paint off the Z polishing it. LOL NOT. When my Z was all in pieces for those 3 years I found it hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel then. You guys came through for me. Summer is just around the corner. things are turning around. Gary:cheeky: ROFL

Damn right Zak. Like chris said, we should send old man winters sorry a$$ to Arkansas. Little Bill will find out what snow really is in a hot $^!# minute LOL

Thanks all for your replies.

ggarrard, thats the same with me. The few nice days that we do actually get always comes during the week when I'm stuck at work and can't enjoy it. Then when the weekend rolls around guess what? More shitty weather :mad:

I also found out last weekend that now I need another new freakin battery for my Z. That damn Werker Battery I got from Batteries Plus (Huge Mistake) tested out bad and the bastards won't do a damn thing for me :mad: Whatever you guys do, don't go to batteries plus for a battery. They're products are junk and they don't stand behind anything. But oh well thats another subject to be pissed about :D
