  2. I left Michigan when I was 18 and moved to Florida. Now that I am retired in Georgia, I am stupid enough to go back every year for the Autorama

    Now I know you are all going to feel sorry for me...67 deg average here...strawberries and artichokes (and ME ) thrive in this coastal microclimate..
    Here is the shocker...85 deg @ Irwindale last week for the Turkey night race (2 days doing tech on a bunch of midgets and sprint cars)...Flew out of lax friday @ noon in shorts and tee shirt. Little rock was ok..in the mid 60's..BUT Amarillo and Flagstaff , snowing like hell..and me still in shorts etc...I40 hammer down, home monday night.

    Wow, that's worse than I expected it to be, Lee! To think some of my Calgary friends laughed at us when we left Alberta for Manitoba! Right now there's barely an inch of the crap on the ground, but it's damn cold here. I really need some heat in my garage. :(

    At least there's no mosquitoes flying around in that shit. Gotta love when the wind packs snow under your hood like a snowball.

    Supposed to get a dusting tonite, then from Monday nite-through Tuesday nite, the big stuff hits. I sit on the line between the 3-5" prediction and the 5-8" prediction, so i figure i'm due for 5" of snow, except this is Kansas so i'll pack the flip flops and sunscreen, too.

    and yeah, my new place has all my tools crammed into a one car garage, so the falcon's outside shiverin'.

    And tornados do suck.

  18. Here's an update, truck is running, and the model A is squeezed into the shop.
    The model A fired up good, the starter was frozen, but the crank start worked, first time i've ever used it.

    I remember working in a cold freezing garage in Chicago..oil burning stove eventually burning your eyes.
    No matter how warm the garage got..that concrete floor was freezing.

    The worst though was when something broke on the DD..and I'd either have to get it into the garage and lose the heat..or work outside.

    And today I stayed inside cause it was 65 and cloudy..worked in the garage..watched football..and remebered that space heater..

    Fondly...

    Ah...Nope...

    sitting in front of the kerosene heater, been miserable cold and rainy here rotten weather to work on anything.
     
  23. this is the first year ive had a garage of my own, i fired up the heater for the first time to see how its gonna work this winter, it ran for a while, i shut it off, looked at the thermostat and could almost watch the temp go down.

    its gonna cost me a fuckin fortune to keep warm. shit i need to insulate! winter costs money like a bitch.

    That's the reason my Dad moved us all to the far left coast from Sudbury Ontario when I was a kid. He got sick of the cold and snow. I'm glad he moved us when I see those pics. It rains a lot here in the winter, and we do sometimes get some snow, but generally only lasts about a week. It has been cold the last few days, around the freezing tempature, but lucky no snow.
    This area is about the warmest winter weather in Canada. I would not want to live "back east" again....
