Almost May, and still snow and cold here in MI. UGH!

I HEAR YA. I live in NE Ohio, and the weather REALLY SUCKS here...it's in the low '40s, has been rainy on and off for a week (even snowflakes threatening!), and I looked outside this afternoon: the f'ing lawn needs mowing! I can ONLY IMAGINE what conditions are like in Michigan!!!

Perfect amount of overcast on a 80 degree day here in beautiful San Antonio!
No wind made it nice to put the top down to boot.

Here in Quebec City we received 6 inches of snow yesterday and today they say about 2 or 3 more. Suck I just put the summer tire on the boxster. Needless to say she is stuck in he snow bank and I left it there for the night and ask for a ride home after work. But today I have to move it back home, cant stay park there. Its going to be a wild ride home!

Take it VERY EASY...I learned (the hard way) about the dangers of driving summer performance tires in cold weather. And I wasn't even having to contend with snow (rainy, low 40s). That rubber gets really hard and loses the vast majority of its grip...NO hard accelerations and NO hard turns at speed!

Northern Illinois isn't much better. We had an 84 degree day a week/half ago, then a couple inches of snow. My home in Wisconsin is sitting under 6-8 inches of new snow this past week. I haven't even considered firing up the Box...perhaps by mid-May.
