Old Man Winter rear's his ugly head!!!
Well, it's official. We have snow.:pain: Got about an inch of the white stuff yesterday and more predicted for the rest of the week. Temps aren't too bad, and of course, the kids are thrilled because this means that Santa is coming soon. :eek:

Oh well, guess I'll have to change my avatar as soon as the kids get their snowman built.:D

Yeah, aint that bad yet though.....:pain: but the driving got a bit tricky, never driven in ice yet since I only got my lisence 2 months ago:drunk: :drunk: think I'll be in the ditch today

They are predicting snow here tomorrow south of Chicago. It's supposed to be measurable but the ground hasn't frozen yet, so it will most likely melt right away.

I told you last year to move down here to the "Tropics"....Southern Ontario.

Didn't take my advice, so you can't whine about it now................

poncho62. Not to hi-jack this thread, but I have a quick question. Have you ever heard of a place called....
Showcars Fiberglass & Steel parts unlimited
they are on Hwy. 50 in
Bolton, Ont. ???

I ask because I have a fiberglass front end ordered there. (promised 4-6 weeks). today is day 56 and counting. I'm gettin' the run around. I'm gettin' nervous.

poncho62 11-23-2004 03:43 PM

I know that there was a couple of "Collector Car" sales places up there. Never heard of that company though.
There is a place in Bolton called "Hammersteel" that makes custom body parts from steel. May be related.

I will look in my "Old Autos" paper and see if II can find it.

Bolton is about an hour from me.

it's rained here every day for a week. for over the better part of the day, every day. been under a flood warning for most of that too. If it was frozen here, we'd be missing work and skool for sure. I hope it freezes long enough to kill off some mosquitoes here. that's all the cold we need.:welcome:

No winter here yet, 68 here warmer tomorrow.

RCastle 11-23-2004 04:01 PM

It is weird here,still warm,just came in from the front porch,in a T-shirt and pajama pants.The weather forecaster said that winter will come tomorrow,supposed to drop two or three flurries on Thanksgiving.If this keeps up,the age old tradition of "bumper-riding"will not happen this year!

crazygutgut 11-23-2004 04:13 PM

oh "snow" I have seen pcitures of that..

Its mid 60's today, sun is out and Im wearing shorts rain in site. The "winter" rain storm was last week finally forced my to replace the original wipers on my 96 Civic, that means my wife has 2 years left on the wipers on her 98 Tacoma... I was planning on going to the beach friday I'll make a "sand man" for you east coasters...

It doesn't snow here to much, if it does it doesn't stay for more than a day. I hope it snows here real good this year, it makes it really fun in a big empty parking lot and your foot on the gas. :thumbup: hehehe

tbirdscott 11-23-2004 08:25 PM

A big empty icy parking lot awaits me every night after work :thumbup:

This is my first winter driving too, never really had to before. We have had snow off and on for the last month, up to 5 inches then it rains, snowed an inch tonight but its supposed to stay now.

Need a snowmobile:drool:

lluciano77 11-23-2004 08:29 PM

Nice and warm here in sunny California!

So far I have only had to wipe the dew off my windshield once, first thing in the morning.

It was in the high 50s all day today.

Nightfire 11-23-2004 09:11 PM

Came back from bandpractice at my church and wow it's hard to drive. Not really hard but you gotta drive way slower and you learn soon that your car will slide into an intersection and not stop where it's supposed to:pain: had some fun on the huge church parking lot though, now I understand them drifters:thumbup:
