Hopefully, the snow is gone for the year...

Temps climbed from the mid teens last week to the mid 60s this weekend, so it was time to get the salt off the cars. (I know, you southern guys are all like, "snow? Salt? What's that?"). Pressure washed the undersides to get the salt off, as well. Now they are black again, instead of off-white, like they have been for the past month or so...





Anybody else in the snow belt getting a chance to dig out and clean up yet?

Needs more rear sway bar, I forgot to adjust it before the race

It's pretty warm here right now. I think it got to about 50-ish here today, and I can see grass again. Only issue is the snow banks we had piled up (End of the driveway and by the walkway to the front door) were taller than me (6ft. roughly) in mid-January. So, yeah. The temps look warm for the next 10 days, highs in the mid 40's until Friday and Saturday when it will be high 30s, then back up to mid 40s again. Supposedly more snow Friday and Sunday, but not accumulating, or atleast not much.

Today was about 70 and it is supposed to be above 60 all week.... but I suspect that it will be back to normal temps soon which are usually in the mid 50s.

And yes I am very glad I do not have to deal with the snow. We typically only get one good snow fall per year.

might give the car a good wash and wax tomorrow, supposed to get into the 60's here, but I got the feeling that we still are going to get another good snow before the winter is over, after all, it is still only February.

Yep perfect time to give the f150 a bath to make it red again. I hate having a white truck.
