    This, among other reasons, is why I left Connecticut for California.

    It was 75º and sunny today. Just some little fluffy clouds....
  14. It got down to a chilly 82 degrees today here :)

    Wish you could send some our way. The Cascade mountains didn't get enough snow for the ski resorts to open. Think water shortage this summer.

    well growing up in Milford i saw some wicked winters. one year we had a snow storm blow in and it started snowing and continued for almost three days. when we finally dug out at home we went downtown where he had his optical shop on 23 river st. when we got there my eyes about popped out of my head. the snow had drifted up against the front of the buildings from the railroad bridge to the intersection where the cops stood in the big trash can to direct traffic. it took the city about two or 3 days to get things cleaned up enough so we and other businesses on the street could get in and finish cleaning and open our doors.

    don't complain the days off from school were the best part. i made good money shoveling snow. this was about 1963 or 1963. it was also so cold the Milford harbor froze over all the way down to the yacht club.

    We don't have snow flakes that gang up on you, but we do have fire ants. At least the snow is pretty.

    Always kind of wanted to live in a snow area, it looks so serene, cozy and romantic. Am I only thinking of the up side?

  23. It's going to be about 65 to 70 here in southern Colorado today and my family in Tennessee thinks were freezing to death out here. I'll be out finishing up the radiator on the '47 in short sleeves.

    If this comes out, sounding personal, just say to you self, I can't be the only one who has summer all year.

    But wtf, just ain't fair. We have a mild winter over here, that means freezing at night and just above freezing at day time.
    In teens that means wind is blowing, half the days it rains, the other part we battle in the mud to make it know where slow.
    The sum comes up around 8 in the morning, sun goes down at 5. So dark when I leave home, dark when I return, shitty when at work and dark and shitty when I'm home.

    Please re-introduce snow to me again, never thought I miss that stuff.

    I hope you summer dudes, @Race 39, @HRP @prewarcars4me, fest a slight sun burn I February while I struggle to not loose my last broken marbels.

    Snow sucks... A couple yrs back I was on a hunting trip, I received a text from the boy, it read..."Big storm coming. What should I do?"
    I text back, "Stick a snow shovel up your ass and run down the driveway backwards.".........
    Then I found out the wife had borrowed the boys phone.

    dirty old man

    Well, I'm way down here in GA and I'm damned tired of the weather up there. I flew to Akron, Ohio last week and bought a super nice '40 Ford Deluxe coupe in nearby Massillon, OH. flew back home , got Hagerty ins. on it, and all of this week I've been watching weather forecasts from here to there while I got a couple other obligations cleared up. The extended forecast forecast up I-77 to there keeps changing every day.
    Can any of yall up there tell me if I should get some sort of fuel additive for my Chev. Duramax diesel so as to help it start in the extreme cold up there?

    Well we peaked at 8 above today it started below 0. Just out stacking a little wood and we have over 7 FT so far this month and a little snow coming ( 14"/18" ) it has been coming down pretty regular the last 2 weeks. I think the people that stay in the north use winter for building and maintaining!
