    we drove through PA Monday - Tuesday - had to scrape the ice off the car with a credit card. (it's November we said, we don't need an ice scraper yet we said). Then 6 inches of snow here. Fortunately it is melting as we speak, but, have to get the car back on the road to get her into storage.

    You must be clairvoyant.... I showed that very article to my wife this morning.
    I have come to my senses a long time ago.... for many, many years I have wanted to move south but the roadblock is my better half. She does not do change well.
    Possibly when she is done working we can consider it.
    We both graduated college in Florida.... we should have stayed there!

    At least the mower moves easily, so you can get TR out for a decent day.

    Larry, that was exactly my thought. Its pretty simple to move the tractor if I want to get the car out.

    I've been in Tampa the last month... hard to even tell its November here. Virginia has gotten cold though with snow as well... I brought way too many cold clothes to Tampa, but I'm not complaining for sure.

    Been a little chilly here in North East Oklahoma, 20s during the night, but warms up to the 40s during the day, 61 today. Haven't put the car to bed yet, but I did put the side curtains on.

    we were returning from Myrtle Beach - so I-70 - I -76 - I 79 - I 90 - is any of that near you? Sadly whenever we are in PA we are almost always trying to get somewhere else.

    I-76 is the PA Turnpike that runs East/West. I am about an hour and 20 mins west of Philadelphia and 30 mins from Hershey. You're welcome anytime!

    Re: Put my toys away for the winter

    If I can I try not to put my TR in storage for the winter. Our winter's are so highly variable, we can get a foot of snow one week, and it can be 50 degrees the next. When it warms up and dries off I try to get the car out. Move the fluids, release the clutch, charge the battery. I know storage and weather considerations can be different, and I have had instances where I do have to out the car up for winter. But getting the car out to exercise if possible I'd good for me and the car.
