Worried about GW? Move to Maine...

While some on here are worried about Global Warming I myself am worried about the butt load of snow that is going to hit Maine in the next few months. I've only had my Boxster since October. I've stored a few Miatas over the years. Just throwing this out there for the guys who have to store their toys for the winter. Any hints or tips related to the Boxster I should know about before storing it for a long winters nap? Here's what I've got so far...

Tires up to 60lbs.
Full tank of gas w/ some fuel stabilzer
Remove the battery (not on a concrete floor) and put it on a trickle charger
Leave the hood unlatched (to get the battery back in easier)
A good wash inside and out
box of baking soda in the pass. compartment
Stuff paper towels up the exhaust pipe and any other "orifices"

Anything else???

-Tom

I just 'hibernated' my Boxster today as well. I change the oil prior to hibernation. Also, make sure the emergency brake is not engaged. Other than that you seem to have it covered.

My question is this. How much is a butt load of snow exactly and how do you verify that measurement? Are there varying degrees of butt loads of snow? Like does the weather man say "Tomorrow we're getting a Rosie O'Donnell butt load of snow" and then you know you're completely screwed, as opposed to when he says "We're getting a Jessica Alba butt load of snow" and you become very happy because you're in for a really pleasant day?

Well, I've never related any amount of snow to Jessica Alba. You must not be from the Northeast if you have to ask what a butt load of snow is. I SO badly want to move to California. Convertible season 365 a year...
