Someone Tell Me Winter Is Cool

As the sky turns grey and the winds start howling in Michigan to rid the trees of their last pretty leaf, I am becomming depressed that for the next 9 months, it will be a challenge to keep my car clean and a challenge to keep cabin fever at bay. We live in a pancake state with no Mountains or hills to play on, just pancake fields that offer no resistance to constant drifting snow that we must drive through with our Adamized rides. I'm going to try a new trick and haul out the leaf blower to clear the driveway this year in lieu of the shovel. We'll see how that works out. I also need a snow and ice melt "system" for the sloping driveway, so that I can wash my car below 32* without creating a bobsled track in the process.:lolsmack:

I love winter. nice cool 75 degree days, 55 degree nights. I can wash/wax the cars or work out in the yard without sweating like a swamp monster.

 

It's great!

 

+1 It's finally almost cool enough here for me to be able to start detailing again. First weekend in November is usually when I do a full detail since it's cool enough out that the my American isn't liquid while sitting in the garage. :glasses:

Thats what i miss about Arizona:(

 

Now i have to deal with cold temps and lots of snow this winter. Im expecting the first snow any time now, most of the time we get it on Holloween, then it will snow on and off for 6 months straight. I wont be able to detail my truck again till May so i better get it ready for winter really soon

Rick that just isn't funny. (ok yes it is). Here in Denver we are under a winter storm warming and could get up to a foot of snow tonight. And it was 80 degrees yesterday.

Man it seems like all the trees lost there leafs today! From color to drab in 12 hrs. Let the snowing begin, My Prelude will go through anything!:D<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" /><o:p></o:p>

I love the change of seasons and winters. In fact, I'd go psychotic living in the 365 day a year sameness of a place like Florida. :cheers:

 

Suuure Rich, keep deluding yourself with that. Hope that thought keeps you warm while shoveling snow this winter. I'll send some pics of me BBQing and sitting by the pool in February. :jester:

Only upside to Winter is no yard work! With the spare time I will heat up the garage and do some polishing on my car.

Before this finding this forum, I thought clean and waxed meant done. My paint would have been fine as is. Now the swirl marks really bug me.

That doesn't bother me at all. It is a little backwards that we look forward to winter so we can do stuff. haha.

 

Now what does bother me is that the state is flatter than Kate Moss. It's so boring at times, but then I love the mountains and being that I'm into photography, biking and hunting/shooting I would really like to have some decent bumps.

Yea, actually I think the flatness is what would really kill me about FL. I once drove my Vette to Florida and i felt so bad for all you sports car guys that live down there... no windy roads to enjoy! Just 90 degree turn after 90 degree turn... :lol:

this winter is gunna piss me off, between school and no spring break planned to warm areas i might lose my mind. haha, ill just have to hope i get some nice Adams christmas products so i can look forward to the spring and bringing the jeep back to life. Poor jeep

 

 

you need to buy a beater for winter.

 

 

Not that I need it for winter, but I think I'm finally going to replace mine with another Jeep (Wrangler this time) next year. If I didn't spend so much on house stuff in the last few months I'd buy it sooner. haha.

If you get something like I have (not sure how much snow you all really get up there in Michigan) you can probably find a decent civic for $3K with under 100K miles on it. Mine has 85K and the last time it was in getting it's oil changes and other regular maint stuff, the guy said it's in amazing shape. I know many people that have had civics run for 200K and more. Plus you'll have something that gets great mpg if you want to offset that 11mpg the Jeep gets. :D
