Back in the day I had a Buick GS convertible that was my toy car. my goal was to always have it out of storage and on the road by April 1st. I put the battery in the wagon and started driving it this week. I still have what I think is a blend door issue with the defrost, but I live with it.

Today I get this crap.






And while getting online its now a freekin blizzard out there.

Laughing

the old joke about why women are bad with distance, they are always told that "this is eight inches"


FWIW it stopped snowing.
thing is it was 60 yesterday.
My son has his first lacrosse game of the season next Saturday and we have not had much proper practice outside due to the cold. it is supposed to be 33 on Monday so we need to rent the indoor arena.

We have to travel a lot for lacrosse and the wagon is great for the road trips. I will have had the car 2 years on July 4th and despite only driving it 7 month a year I have put 28K miles on it so far.

It snowed in my area too, nothing stuck but still, odd for this far south in Ohio. I've put just over 5K on my wagon last year, non-paid internship and part time jobs really has put a limit on how much I drive.

woke up to a fresh inch of snow on the ground and it has been over a week since I drove the wagon.

Frustrated by VT weather as well.
Drove the wagon last winter and loved it, but the rust from the salt was noticeable.
This winter I put the Roadie up, then had very little snow.
Now spring, but just enough snow to deter me from getting the roadie out, yet not enough to ski on.
I think it has been the worst of both worlds.
Took the Buick for a drive today, and am hoping for the weather to just make a decision, one way or another.
As much as I actually like winter, I sometimes envy the guys down south for the environmental predictability.

As much as I always used to like Michigan winters I to am starting to think of how nice it would be to winter down south.
