Yeow!
Atlanta had a little winter storm come through this past weekend. It was COLD and windy. I got cabin fever and put on a ski jacket, light gloves and a hat and took the Boxster out - with the top down! I needed that. And it wasn't bad - I ended up not needing the hat. I wished someone could have taken a pic for me.

I wish I could be more encouraging and tell you those pics look nice, but they look absolutely miserable.

I am a total cold wuss, and I give you guys credit for being able to handle -10. Hopefully, I will never know what that is like.

That's nothing. You should have seen my car after I came back from spending a week in/around Buffalo. With the help of the Blizzaks and traction control, the car actually performed well, much to the surprise of the locals.
