Old Man Winter rear's his ugly head!!!

Well, it's official. We have snow. 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.

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

Chickie.

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.

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

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.

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. hehehe

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

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

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.

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 had some fun on the huge church parking lot though, now I understand them drifters
