This really is too much. It's supposed to be mud season now! And I should be seeing enough warm days to start thinking about putting the insurance back on the Spider. But noooo! And I'm on the Connecticut coast. You guys up farther north must have it even worse. The closest thing I've seen to a sign of spring is sap buckets on trees (and I can't see that it's been warm enough for the sap to be running even). Farg, I'm sick of this.

Very artistic! Speaks for everyone I know. I may have to move to Florida just to get to drive my Alfa once in a while.

Love the art work! Just so you don't feel like your in the boat alone it's the same here in Michigan too! Fresh dusting of more snow this morning and the promise of more freezing temperatures all weekend. It's been too darn cold to even putter around with the toy in the garage!

Regards,
Paul

I don't want to upset anyone, but here in Southern California it's forcasted to be in the mid to upper 70's this weekend.

Just thought you should know.

I'll be picking up houses cheap come the next earthquake...no crying here. For now, I'll just hang out at the beach. I have been going the last two weekends...it's been nice.

Brrrrrrrr !

70!!!!!!
It's not even 70 in my house!!
I did see on channel 4 (WBZ) this morning that, even though it's been snowing like every 5 days(my personal casual observation), this is only the 4th snowiest winter in Boston.
And it was like 12 degrees on the way to work this morning!
I've only driven the spider twice since October.....

I spent the first quarter century of my life in CT and i don't miss the winters (and excessive old car rust ) one bit. Early this winter, my parents were telling me how beautiful the snow was; lately they've been BEGGING for Spring-type weather.

A mere 25 today in the sun with 5" of snow coming tonight.

The skiing has been great. Off to Montana end of the month for more skiing. Then it will be mud season with an eye toward taking the car out in May.

The Spider remains asleep ......

Being my first winter under alfa ownership, I caved in.
