Nice and sunny here.  Barrett Jackson cruise last night was packed with 600+ cars, 75 degrees with a light breeze.  Doesn't get any better in January.   I left that snow in Ohio several years ago, had enough, no regrets.  My parents flew out this weekend, left Friday just as that storm was hitting, got off the plane here Friday afternoon, 76 degrees.  They don't want to go back, lol.

This is a normal winter day in Sweden..... ::)
Very true but what made this one a little bitter is it was a Blizzard with 24" of snow with wind. Spent 5 plus hours out in it yesterday trying to keep things from getting out of hand and when I have to use the tractor with a front end bucket to scoop snow to remove its a bear especially with no cab. When I stopped last evening our jockey in front of the stable was able to show some light. :) Yep, think spring!

Glad you guys had fun. On the 23rd I worked in the shop, messed around the yard, went to the stored in my 4 wheel drive. Came home, slipped on the ice 8 feet from the house door and broke my leg. Walking on crutches, cannot drive, have enough screws in my leg to hang a board of sheetrock. Be carefull guys, Most of us are not 25 anymore.

I'm sorry, Kelley! Hope you mend fast!

Thanks for the thoughts guys. Here in NC they are predicting more winter weather this weekend. I guess it is good I still can,t walk. Might have to let the wife drive my 4 wheel truck. All most as bad a thought of her driving the Z.

Kelly, hang in there. Hopefully by the time the weather is warming up and the roads are clear you will be back on both feet.
