Too Cold to Drive
#11
I'll just swirl the ice round my drink again while I read about 'cold'.
Now I'll just pressure wash this engine bay and wait five minutes while it drys off in the sun while I sip my ice cool drink. 578254 Icon_tongue Biggrin

When we were kids we shoveled every driveway and sidewalk on the street for a buck for or two....nowadays, these guys with plows charge $40 - $50 and the quality of their work is...well let me stop here before I get in trouble! And I understand what it cost to get insurance for plowing.

I was farther south for a few days and was out in the heat of the whole day sweating profusely. I was so confused when I got back and spoke with family in Ohio who are dealing with minus degrees and 10" of the white stuff. Then it dawned on me that it was still February.

Thankfully where we live it is neither that awful hot or that terrible cold. 70 degrees currently (8:30 PM) There are a few other serious issues but the weather is good at the moment.

Machonefatherfigure - Enjoy that cold drink. We have cars with right hand steering wheels here in the states too, but we just use them to deliver mail, especially on cold days.

gxr, Yep, I had a LHD Cadallic Eldorado ('72) for a few years out here too. Had to drive fairly slow, otherwise people could not see me. Even had the then under age daughter hold a 'ghost' wheel in a mates LHD 'Stang. Now that was a hoot and a half!! All the people only seeing her and not noticing the old bloke with the other wheel! Let me get into the shade now so the warm SUN does not glare too much on the screen. 578254 Drink_to_that

Thought I would share some NE weather with you all. We just picked up another 3-4 inches last night and running out places to put the snow! Also, it is about 35 degrees this morning and comparatively speaking, it's a heat wave! Unfortunately, the warm weather will only last today and back to extreme cold conditions.

Yeah you got a pretty good amount. And I definitely remember days when 35 degrees felt like a heat wave. The Blizzard of "77" when I lived just south of Chicago, we saw 43 honest degrees below zero and "77" degrees below zero windchill. Talk about way to damn cold for my liking! JTS 71 Mach1

Ps No I didn't move south because of the weather, I've got an Ex wife that still lives there, as long as she does I won't.

I find it hard to imagine THAT cold - I'm from England and -2*C is cold there. I'll just stick to the warm here, with a spa (read 'hot tub') for the cooler winter evenings.
