We had the same over here until a few days ago. The Siberian winds have been very cold and people think Mr. Putin has something to do with it. Is the global warming going backwards?

It wasn't luck, it was a choice. After 18 years of this, I'd had enough.

Say what you want, but long winters are responsible for many 928s having low mileage!
We have to thank those prior cold-weather caretakers.

Our middle son lives in Wisconsin Rapids, talked to him yesterday, he said they expected 10 inches of snow. Screw that, it was in the high 70's yesterday, here in Sin City, but windy. I can't figure out what the draw is to living in a deep freezer!

10 commercial roofs collapsed yesterday in Green Bay. This is super wet and compact snow, falling concrete some are calling it.

2nd worst snowstorm in Green Bay history. Now comes the flooding....

It was 35 this morning when I woke up. It's 80 now and climbing. A customer sent me pictures last night of 26" drift in on his patio yesterday, screeeeeew that. I'll deal with a few months of high 90's over that snow crap.

I hear you about bikinis Joe. On the other hand, the snow is a VERY effective flatlander repellent!

And lately you get a fine and a reputation hit for life just taking a second look at the poon tang.......... Sun glasses and a beach spot, FTMFW.....

My daughter lives in Sheboygan, and that's only 1 hour North of me. Yet they got it much worse than we did, like Erik says.

It was pretty bad here in the Bay Area also, we had some rain in the morning but then the sun came out in the afternoon:


Notice my car in the garage on the right. I must admit the weather here is better then when I went to high school in Oscoda, Michigan.
