Cool Umm, we're getting 15 inches of snow...

...tonight, into tomorrow... that's on top of the 8"-10" last Friday and the 6+ we had Sunday...
Spring seems an eternity away right now.

I love the snow. I love the cold. I love it when it's chilly out. I spend a lot of time outside in the winter.

BUT

I am tired of winter already! lol

I'm so ready for it to be top-down weather. 45 degrees is my cut-off. As soon as it hits that then the Boxster is getting a bath and we are going driving.

Unfortunately I don't see those temperatures in the next few weeks.

When I lived in Maryland my cutoff for having the top down was 40 albeit I was really bundled up.

But now in Florida the cutoff is around 60...the older I get the colder it seems to get.

Speaking of cold, the winter here has been cooler than normal although we are expecting low-mid 80s today - too bad the Boxster S is sitting somewhere in Finland waiting for a boat.

It was 62 Sunday. The box got a bath.

It's going to be 79 today. Guess what I drove to work.

I will say this, I sure picked the right year to take up snowboarding

I have been able to hit the slopes every weekend since Dec 9th !

I sure do miss driving the Boxster though

Sorry to hear that man. Moving south will solve that problem. I drove mine with the top down yesterday.

Come do a long weekend in UT! I was in waist-deep Alta pow yesterday, off to Brighton today. Apres ski will consist of beer and lamenting the loss of the Boxster for another month or so....

Wow, I am glad I got out of there when I did - my flight out of Chicago last night was one of the only ones not canceled. 3 hours late, but hey, I got home.

Enjoy the snow!

I should have worked from home today. I take Metra to the Loop and it was clear this morning.

One would think that being a weatherman I would know better and stay home.... one would think. hahaha

I just hope the BNSF isn't delayed going back to the burbs; and that Pace can get me to my house.

I'm working from home as well...
Here's a shot from earlier. We've had about 6 more inches since. I've already done the drive once.
This photo is looking up into the cul-de-sac from my front door.

This Global Warming is something, huh?

Here in SOCAL, we are having a very wet, very cold winter.

What's up with that?
