    So, things were getting a little springish around here. The snow was mostly gone, we've had days in the high 40s and nights just below freezing helping dry the ground out so the mud hasn't been too bad. Decided that yesterday was the day to get my farm truck and the wife's Audi TT out of winter storage, it was sunny and warm, a little breezy. Got the new wheels and tires on the truck, drove it around all day, ran errands, picked up feed, did a couple of burnouts, satisfied my 4 1/2 month long blower whine jones. Mrs. WC145 drove the Audi to work, did her errands, it put a smile on her face, and all was right with the world.
    They predicted a dusting of snow overnight, no big deal, and I was looking forward to taking the truck out for a nice Saturday ride, maybe go to breakfast, scare some old ladies in the parking lot. Just have a fun morning before working on chores.:):joyful::laugh::smug::play::smurggrin::cool2:

    And then night fell and that b!tch Mother Nature hooked up with that codger Old Man Winter and f**cked it all up.:eek1::cry::bawl::cry::bang::rage::punch::finger:

    As much as I love living in Maine, and usually don't even mind the weather, it's times like this I hate it.:mad:

    I hear ya WC! Northern Michigan is much the same way. Snow was gone here, waited for the ground to dry up so I could shoot from the long winter hiatus. Over the last few days, we now have 6" on the ground. I miss shooting the monthly challenges, but until the weather cooperates, I am stuck waiting!

    YUCK! Don't miss that **** one bit. We just moved from Ohio a few months ago to Florida. I'll deal with the heat and the hurricanes. No thanks on the cold and snowy weather. :D

    PS. Badass pickem up you got there Sir. Love that. RWD burnouts FTW. :)

    Moved from Upstate NY to Arizona, snow is just a bad memory at this point. Come to think of it rain is just a memory also.

    I moved from Pittsburgh, PA to Myrtle Beach, SC about 13 years ago. Now that I have young kids, I think about all of the fun I had in the snow as a kid that they haven't experienced yet. My sister recently took her kids on a trip to the mountains to experience snow and I think that's a good idea.

    Moved from Mass to Florida to South Carolina. Could not move back to either Mass or florida. Mass is miserable and Florida has too many snow birds.

    I too used to live in Upstate, NY (Rochester/Webster) and then moved to TN. We really don't get snow. However, with get those things with high speed swirling winds, ever now and again this time of year. I believe they call them "tornadoes". I hear they make an awful mess of things. Hope I never meet one.

    LOL, a basement is one of the things I miss the most about living up north. I had one hell of a man cave/game room down there.

    After my first summer, I got used to the heat. But A/C is definitely a must. The weather has been so crazy lately that I've actually had to use heat and the A/C in the same day.

    I'm with you. I can put on more clothes. When the dewpoint is 78, humidity 90% and it doesn't get below 80 degrees at night, there's no way anyone can enjoy that.

    You should move to Missouri. It’s perfect weather all year around here.



    J/K. It sucks here too. LOL. We had snow on Easter. The good news is we are a tough bunch that powers through.

    Ugh. That's one of the reasons I moved here from NC, the heat and humidity sucked. At least this snow will be gone in a day or two.
