The only snow i have to worry about are the damn snow birds that flock down from the north, driving slow all over town.

Already bought my plane ticket for Barrett-Jackson week in January in anticipation of needing a break from the cold/snow up here. Actually, the real reason is the annual belated Christmas celebration with parents (Sun City...where else?) and sister's family in Scottsdale. Sun City seems to be the epicenter of slow drivers!! Mad

This storage word for which they speak is good...If not, your standards on a minimal rust body lower with every car you see.

Webster's definition of winter storage: New England Version for those of you unfamiliar w/ the term.

A point at which an auto enthusiast begins a panic stricken attempt to keep a vehicle out of the elements that have an adverse effect upon said vehicles aesthetic appearance or structural integrity & ultimate value. See also: Tarpaulins, Garages, Lean-too's, Barns, Caves & Bungee cords.

LOL! Sure wish I had the same perspective....

COURSE ... "winter storage" does keep SOME of the "car expenses" down, so it isn't ALL bad......

Well.....winter in Eastern Mass this year was a joke (I'm not complaining). I think there was less than 10 days since December that the temp fell below 15 degrees. It's been 75+ for the last 4 days in a row and my winter jacket all this season was an insulated zip up hoodie. I think I took the snow blower out once when we got the one "bad" storm...a whopping 6". I could use a few more of these. Thank you Mother Nature!

Same here in MN! I shoveled three times this winter...each snowfall being a paltry 2-3". Was visiting family in Phoenix the only week we had a couple days below zero. We've been setting record highs the past two weeks and wouldn't be surprised to hear the roar of lawn mowers within the week!

Same here in IL.

But, I couldn't take advantage of it. Had to put the MCs away early because of my 11/11/2011 open heart surgery, and we didn't have a major salt-needing snow until JANUARY. Now, we have gorgeous weather ... and I can't justify the expense of getting them out because I'm unemployed. Lovely...LOL!

I HAD winter storage for my Monte Carlo, but it went to my damn Grand Prix when the engine decided to spin a bearing. If all goes well this April, I'll have the GP back on the road and the Monte back in storage.

And speaking of winter, I mowed the lawn yesterday, since the weather has been warm, and today there is snow on it. And there was frost on my windshield today. And tonight it's supposed to be below freezing... again........around here if we don't like the weather, we just wait a few minutes....

Here in Ohio today was warmer than the last few days but still to cold. My brother lives in Houston Texas, and he is constantly harassing me (in text) about "what's the weather like up north". I can't wait for the deep freeze to end. happy bowtie
