    Heck, we had snow for Christmas in Geneva...guess you missed out.

    Not thrilled about the white stuff falling now, so I'm heading out to Death Valley tomorrow for a week without winter :)

    Should try something less urban that Phoenix to chase away the winter blahs. The real desert is where it's at!

    In the high 60's daytime here. Guess I need to be where Allan Lambo is!
    it's always better someplace else!

    Bad weather especially sucks for car guys! This is enough of a reason
    to move,enjoy your car more ,and complain about 60 degree temps!

    LOL

    Aren't those things loud enough with a tubi?

    I'm busy setting up F1 sims in my house so more than one person can race. Doing silly stuff around the house is about all we can do now. Sigh.

    I posted in the Florida section that I'm on my way next weekend. We gotta get out of this for a while too. It's not so much the snow as it is the dreary skies. We had less than 24 hrs of sunshine in all of January. So far Feb. isn't looking much better.

    Sorry,guys. I'm all better now. It didn't Snow as much as they said it would. And,hey,Feb. is a short month. March will fly by,(right?) and,before we know it,Spring will,uh...Spring!

    I do enjoy the change of seasons, winter and snow is fine with me. It gives me a little time to play with things, I am working on one of the bikes, and plan to do a couple of things to the 365 before driving season. I doesn't bother me to have the car or bike taken apart in the winter, but in the warmer months it always seems that you are going to miss something.

    Interesting point.

    So what is worse: Winter where we can't drive our cars or the midst of the summer, when the A/C isn't cold enough?

    The Air Conditioning on my 308 is Ice Cold,even in the middle of Summer. But,if it didn't work properly,at least I could still drive,but with the Top removed.:) And,yes,I guess that I do have to agree about having Winter as the time to perform service work,repairs,upgrades,and the like. In my present condition,though,I can't do that stuff. Hopefully,after I have my Back Operated on,I'll be back to my old self. Get a lift,and Air Compressor,some Pneumatics tools.....But,need to get a heated garage.Even if my Back gets fixed,I am still left with severe Arthritis.Owww!!!The Cold really aggravates it. I cringe when I think of all the many Years that I used to go Ice Fishing with my Relatives. Standing out on a Frozen Lake all day,or all night. Even,sometimes in an Ice Fishing Shanty,still freezing!! But we did always get alot of Fish.

    Sweating in a Ferrari is better than not-sweating in another car. (8->}
