39º this morning, but sunny. TR3 didn't want to start, but always does, eventually. Once warmed up, it loves the cold weather, must be the dense air:

I love driving in the cold, sans top and curtains, but no more this winter. Roads are covered with salt after the ice storm yesterday, and more snow and freezing rain on the way. Fagin is safely in the shop until spring getting some more "adjustments" to make next year's driving even better.

15" of snow here and no relief until mid week with warmer temps. Into the 30's, I hope!

I just hooked up my new CTEK charger for my Optima battery. It's 16 degrees outside and tomorrow will be colder with more wind. Wind chills to be near zero all day.

envy, that looks great! 25 with 2-3 inches fresh snow here so went xc sking and then to waubeek (1 bar, no gas stations, 45 residents) for french cabbage stew. 10 below tomorrow morning with 35 mph winds. that’s ok, i have a bunch of reference material printed out, mainly from this forum, so sit inside with a 3 hole punch and a couple of binders and organize for when it get a little warmer in the shop.
go again tomorrow and post another pict for those of us inside. wind just came up so gotta go clean the new snow off before it gets cold.

Sail-

I forget - old age setting in I'm afraid.

Is Iowa a souther provence of Canada or was it
ceded to America during some past war or something?
I've worked in 46 states but never came across Iowa.
Is it near Nebraska? I was in Nebraska twice.

Does Iowa have things like cities? indoor pumbing? Phones?
Asphalt streets, schools with more than one classroom? etc.

AH Ha!! Now I remenber- Your grow corn!!
Gazillions of ton of corn. And yer womenfolk have creamy
white skin and tons of freckles.

Merry Christmas Sail!! Be safe, keep warm.

Just great! I just saw the weather and we're getting 4-6 inches more AND rain in between, so it will be impossible to shovel.

But it will be in the 50's by the end of the week.

I got 8" of sun on my back deck. Paul....you got it way worse then we did. Tomorrow should be even more fun with snow, ice and rain. In my 61 years of living in snow country I had a first last night while snow blowing the driveway......Thunder and a bolt of lightning that made me jump..........and it was still snowing like crazy.

I wish that is all I had. I just shoveled mine early this afternoon and will have to try to clear it again before the rain packs it down. I have another 1-2 inches from this morning out there over the past six hours.

Hey - great picks guys.

Kevin - good to see you working the TR3!

I've actually noticed that the cars feel stronger when is it cool (notice I didn't say <span style="font-weight: bold">cold</span> guys....) as well.

You need to crank up that hot tub ASAP.

Yup. Rough rule of thumb is 1% more power for each 10 degree F drop in intake air temp.

-8F this morning. High today of 6 and low tonight of -20F., thankfully no wind. Need to hear from the folks in Wisconsin, their weather always makes me feel better about living on the plains.
