Going to try to keep my new '81 Spider going through the Winter. It's already a little hard to start in the cold, but I'm working on the Spica to make that better. We'll see.

Well I guess you can thank me for the warmish weather, I put the hard top on the Spider a couple weeks ago .

Hopefully the salt holds off....

Lucky, indeed--A decade ago sometimes it would be sparse into January and the games are in February.

I never should have said anything! This arrived last night , only a light one but probably enough for the salt to come out.

Yeah, we got a bit of a dusting as well. About 8 inches worth.

Did you really say 18 feet of snow Subtle !!! at Whistler. God i can only dream of that much snow. We would have been lucky to have had 18cm of snow last winter on the mountains and that would have been skiied on.

How I envy you guys up there in the north to have so much snow. Out here it is time for the surfboard to make a re-appearance and cut down all the long grass in preparation of a long hot summer and the potential risk of fires.

That is 18 feet of fall--it consolidates to less, but it provides a fantastic base.

The snow must have gone right around me; we had what amounted to basically nothing. Still, it's gotten cold enough that I don't foresee top-down driving in the near future.

Took the 115 out for a top-down ride today. Most of the snow is gone. Temps in the 40s with the heat on and a hat made for a really pleasant 45 minute ride. Of course, the snow flurries in the middle of it were interesting.

Just watch for those potholes, they're coming out in force with the warmer temps also.
