    Marty,

    Got the 360 out for a spin during the Seahawk's halftime break. At least 2 other 360s were out on the local roads today. I spotted a silver 360 spider that look suspiciously like Dr. Shelbee's. The other one being Thomas_b on this site who took his Stradale out earlier.

    Anyway, glad to hear the weather cleared up for you down there.

    Took a generous (hmmm... whom might that be?) person's 360 spider out today for a few hours. Drove to Magnolia, then across I-90 (love the sound through those tunnels) to Bellevue and then over to Alki. Even had the top down... and no, it was not cold at all with the windows up and heat on. Wicked!

    I'm so jealous! The picture below was taken yesterday (1/3) - *before* the bulk of the snowfall. Today was beautiful, but it took chains (or studs) to get out. Living on a hill at 1100 feet has serious disadvantages sometimes. :-(

    I pulled the 456 out of the garage so I could pull my wife's car in and put studded snow tires on-- does that count?

    There is still quite a bit of snow on my driveway, and plenty of gravel on the roads around here (Cedar Mill area).

    Yep we had a fair bit of snowfall, something around 9" on the ground back on Thursday. Got bogged twice and had to get pushed but all part of the fun with driving on unplowed roads. Today there was not a cloud in the sky here, mild temps tho, got to about 7F, it was lovely to drive around.

    It was an amazing day up here in Seattle also Marty. Spent the afternoon blasting around town and outlying areas. We've got to take advantage of any breaks in the weather living up here.

    Marty, Montecito is close to Fresno, correct?
    I am currently in a 2 year mini-orthodontic residency which meets every month down in Fresno.......How far are you from there?

    I know.....its kind of the arm pit of California. Although some of my colleagues who live there say its getting way better. I suppose we could have picked a better part of California.......lets say San Francisco or San Diego.
