When I went outside this morning to warm up the cars it was 30, and it was ******* 62 INSIDE!

I don't know why, but I'm totally dreading winter this year. Normally I don't mind it much, but I think I'm starting to hate it. lol

Time to winterize the jetskis and wax the snowboard!

And put the snow tires on the montero and miata...

And mix antifreeze into the motorcycle...

And swap the miata hood back to stock...

And put the hardtop on...

And...and...and...and....

Cool, I love the winter weather. Maybe it has to do with the fact that we have 105*F summers here.

Guess it's time to drain the straight water/water wetter & dump the coolant mixture back in.

Wasn't too bad this morning, only -3C (= 26F) and no snow. Colder weather and snow is expected later this week.

Miata is in winter-hibernation in the garage. Both the DDs: BMW and Volvo are on studded winter tires.

Studded tires on tarmac = massive road noise = fail.

At least both my DDs can go sideways when the snow comes...

And you left the house?! Screw that I would have stayed home and not risked hypothermia.

The high today is 78. Also, our high for May-Early September is 95-100 with about 80-95% humidity. So we will just call it a wash.

+1 What did you use? For very light frost (which appears to be what got you so upset ), a credit card works OK.
