Yeah, hibernation time in Ontario... it bites.
Hey M31, is your car Meridian or Arctic Silver?


Patiently waiting until April

What is that white stuff? It comes from the sky? Weird.

Anyway, it was 91F here yesterday with cooling to the high 80's today...

Thank you for letting me know how nice it is down there…I appreciate that!
We have our own heat wave moving in this weekend with +11C forecast!
All the white stuff will be gone and I can enjoy one final road trip before winter storage next week...

I'm also stuck in dead-boring summer all year long place (lowest 10-15degree Dec~March here). I could trade this for the good old Canadian winter and SNOW anytime! Really missing snow, skiing, snowboarding, skating, trekking, motorcycle ice racing, ice fishing, etc etc etc to name a few

Wouldn't complain if I were you! Enjoy the white stuff

Grew up in Michigan, moved to Houston. Skiing is enough winter for me!

That's heartbreaking to see a Boxster parked outside under a blanket of snow!
I have mine parked in a heated workshop (under a blanket) in Exeter.
PS - no snow here in Simcoe, ON yet.

You forgot:
Shovelling
Slush
Dirty snow
Yellow snow
Frozen locks
Frozen gas line
Frozen water pipes
Square tires
Salted roads
Nighttime at 4:30
And power outages ...

By this time Monday mine will also be hibernating under a blanket inside a secure heated workshop so at least one of us will happy...

Also:

Scraping windshields
Frozen leather seats
Snowplow drifts you have to get through (or over)
Blown windshield wiper fuses
Wheel wells made of ice
Dead batteries

Nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there again!
