Long Winter's Nap

Recommended Posts

I think those of us in the upper Northeast got shafted and lost almost a month of old car driving this fall.   I've driven my old cars Christmas day before with a trace of snow nowhere.  This year we have had snow for the last 2 weeks and the day time high is barely breaking 32.

We just had 4" to 6" on Long Island, turning to rain tonight. Will have to shovel wet, heavy slush tomorrow. Way too early for this nonsense!

The weatherman said it was the first time ever for freezing rain in November in the forecast for Lexington Kentucky!  But suppose to be back to the 50’s by Saturday, sure beats Chicago weather.

The high next week one day is suppose to be 25 with low 30's at best for most of the rest.   The average low for this time of year is suppose to be 28.  We need something to shift the jetstream before it freezes us to the bone.

The cold does not stop us here, its the rain that dampens our spirits.  Sunny & cold is good driving weather, but cold & wet is awful.    Drove down into Georgia last weekend to see the Miles Through Time Museum in Taccoa.  Nice fall colors and a fun place to visit.

Here in central Wisconsin we got about an INCH of snow about 10 days ago......an INCH........so naturally the county salted everything they could find........ :angry:

Some years I've been lucky enough to drive the old ones well into December but not THIS year....... :(

We had freezing rain the other day here in Ohio and they put the liquid salt down,going to drive the sunliner to Daytona Beach over thanksgiving to a car show and then it will be put away for the winter and hope to not have to deal with snow on the way home. Was hoping to figure out the gas mileage on my 37 Chevy p/u since I got the speedo close to accurate but will probably next spring too.

The yellow twine was to tie the trunk down on the way home, no staged picture here.

 

I don't expect problems with my disregard for winter hibernation.......... but if I need another I know someone is storing a nice replacement for me. Thank you in advance.

it's all about El Nino and how it affects  the jetsream. We have had a very dry fall in the PNW, October and November extremely dry. Now if we could just shift the jetstream closer to California, temporarily of course,  then the rains would put out the fires, and not create mudslides in the burned out areas.
