Good morning, another cloudy day so far but we also passed +6 degrees at 11:30 AM, most of the snow is gone except for a few ice patches and standing water 'cause it has nowhere to go.
Have a great day!

Still have a few more months before spring rolls around and then wait for proper driving conditions.

Good morning, only -7 at 9:00, no sun again along with only rare snow patches...sure is different than the usual but 90.9% of us don't mind it a bit. I am used to having at least 6-8 feet of blown snow on my lawn by now. Oh yeah the snowmobilers mind it although there is more snow in northern NB so they have to drive a few hours.
Have a great day.

Good morning 9 and the standard wind & rain. Theres so much water on the ground its got no where to go and with the warm tropical air we are getting that means snow melt in the mountains which from my memories should be a flood concern. The bulbs are up in the garden seems a bit early maybe not but thats promising.

Good day all. Snow and -2 here. We will only get around 10cm. so it shouldn't be to bad, although people seem to forget how to drive when the white stuff falls, took an extra 1/2 hour to get home from work today.
Enjoy the rest of your day.

Funny what snow does to some persons driving....slow and steady wins the race. The hardest thing people don't understand is the slow part, some people even think all season tires are made for winter...SURPRISE!

We really don’t get enough snow in the Toronto area to justify buying snow tires. Although one of my cars has them and the other doesn’t. The big problem is the Morons, that don’t slow down and drive for the conditions. I’ve never had snow tires in my life, but I drive for the conditions, not like it’s a sunny day in June every day.

Experience behind the wheel counts a whole lot when driving in snow.

Good morning, got 20 cm of light snow between yesterday afternoon and 2-3 o'clock this morning, been out snow blowing snow since before breakfast, stopped for breakfast for almost 1 hour though. The wind is blowing and it is about 9 so the wind chill is like -25 or more. If you happen to face the wind it sure is cold on the face. I should have used my ski mask. Ah well the sun is shinning!!
Have a great day and try to imagine that spring might show up some day.

Good evening. This forgetting to post is getting to be a bit of a trend. Mommas back in TO so double triple duty for me especially getting the dogs up and fed in the morning. Rain total for January as of yesterday 221 mm, it will be a bit more as you guessed it its still pissing down.
Going to get my new to me 68 hood Saturday and my next car sofa jod too. This one is for a disabled lady who`s first car was a 65 Falcon so we are doing the front end this time to give her more room incase she wants to lay down and sleep. Not sure if its a 65 but its a 60 something for sure. I got my oem scoops and they are primed and wet sanded need to fill a few imperfections and re spray. I am doing body colour hood body colour scoops and I found a set of scoop emblems for them too. OEM 360 Four Barrel scoop emblems in the box on a shelf in Texas never installed, I can`t wait to see those. I know they are from a Cuda but half my car is from another year anyway and I personally don`t care. I built this the way I would have if I got this car in my teens which is when I first got the Mopar itch and loved me a Dart. Stay tuned there may also be some frame connectors in that box too! Hmmmm car parts, mommas out of town coincidence I think not!
Have a great rest of your day

Reg if you mean sub frame connectors and if you are like me, you will not notice much at first but the more you drive it the more you notice like your doors will close easier, your rear end will follow the front end for a change, better handling and much less body twisting. In other words better all around. If you don't have torque boxes I suggest to get some too, some people do the four corners but the rear ones especially are the ones which work the hardest. If you know somebody who has a welding shop I would go see them instead of buying some somewhere(much cheaper). These get welded in anyway...Triangles is all they are.

Great advice JG. I have no friken welding skill at all but have friends who are quite good so will for sure use that expertise. My car is pretty tight almost unbelievably tight and I want it to stay that way.

Good morning, -4 this morning, and heading for the plus side later, very light snow and clouds, should get maybe 1-2 cm today, rain tomorrow.

Oh and Reg have your sub frame connectors spot welded to the floor every two feet or so if you can and if you do, make sure there is no carpet under the front seats...Ideally no seats or carpet at all.
