    I want to take the "toys" out of the box again. All the roads are covered in salt right now . Yes the "boring" part of winter is upon us. No holidays, just cold and snowy/icy. Blah.

    When is spring going to get here?

    Not effing soon enough. That is all.


    With that said...I remember a 76 degree day here about 3 weeks ago. Two nights later, we had snow. Welcome to Missouri.
    A year ago, we had a tornado, just a few miles from where I am.
    2 years ago, we had a blizzard, worst I have ever seen in person.

    In fact, just the other day, we were under a tornado watch for most of the day.

    It's all Al's (Gore) fault!

    Not a fan of the cold myself, but the winters are pretty mild here, and it rarely ever snows. I def wouldn't be working on my cars right now if I didn't have a climate controlled garage to work in, same during the incredible heat of the summer. They never salt the roads around here, so I get to drive my nice cars all year round, thankfully. Obviously also the main reason why old vehicles last so long, and stay in such rust-free condition here.

    High today in San Antonio was 72. Been in the mid to upper 70s all week. I washed my XR7 after work this afternoon. Got sick of shoveling snow after a career of "Northern Tier" assignments in the Air Force (Alaska, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska) and decided to settle here. Love the weather and threw away the snow shovels and ice scrapers!

    We've had snow pretty much every day this week. They dump salt around here even when we get a half inch. Today we got a mix of freezing rain, rain, sleet, and finally snow with a high of 33*. Miserable weather.

    I know this will sound odd but I only like the 12"+ dumping snow storms. They just look cool as they happen. The little 2" or so everyday snow storms are just depressing. I kinda wish the 20"+ bomb that's going to hit Boston/New England was going to hit Chicago. Then I'd get some time off work. I got two days off with pay when we git a 22" storm here on Ground Hog's day in 2011.
