Top down weather in Houston!

At least today and tomorrow, and then, back in the freezer.

You gotta rub it in huh?! Just kidding...Here in PA we can't get a break from the ice, sleet, rain, nuisance snow, sub freezing weather!! Just glad I'm not further up like in New England..

I'm moving to NC!! (wife won't move to Florida) So we might split the difference..

9 degrees in NJ this morning. But, hey, the sun is out! Hopefully that was the last of the snow and tonight will be the end of the single digits.

Man I so hope this is the end. We certainly have been skating by unlike the Boston area.
I was planning on a nice little drive out to Harrisburg PA tomorrow (2 hr each way) as my last drive before I rebuild front suspension. Don't know if roads will cooperate though after 8-10 inches of the white stuff

I'm sure I will use my best 'Bad' judgment as usual and go for it
At least Sunday I can wash off all the salt

It was -5 in Allentown, PA this morning. Secondary roads were horrible. Route 78 and the turnpike were clear. Keep to the expressways and the trip to Harrisburg should be clear sailing.

Mountainman - Can't wait until the end of May when I'm in your neighborhood for the BRBS. If I can find you, I've got the first round.

It was a very nice drive to Morro Bay this morning, top down and the sunglasses on. About two dozen PCA members showed-up for the meeting, two of which were new. One newbie was driving a 2014 Cayman, the other has a GT3 (could hear it coming two blocks away).

Temperature hit 86 degrees yesterday (record high), it is 83 right now.

True For the most part as long as you are within 25 miles of the coast or up in the mountains. Otherwise CA is hot in August. Born and raised in CA.
