Default Is it Spring yet? How is the weather in your neck of the woods?

I know..I know..3 months away...but here in Virginia having a great day for December weather:
  • 7 am woke up to 40 degree weather and "hot water bucket "washed the Z51
  • 8 30 am 46 degrees and started at it for a few moments
  • 900 am following my son to the Hyundai dealer for his 1st oil change 52 degrees and I opened her up full throttle...yeah!
  • 930 am met a guy on the f150 forum and sold him some used all weather mats ..holding at 52 degrees
  • 10 am did a little light shopping 55 degrees
  • 12 pm stopped at the beach and snapped some glamour shots 56 degrees
can we make it to 62 today?

how is the weather where you are?

It's not as nice as down there, but it's currently 32 degrees here and the roads are dry and free of salt so I had my C7 out for a 40 mile run this morning. It looks like I will have more opportunities to drive it during the next week too. I'm hopeful that there won't be any long periods of time that I can't drive my C7 this winter, it's generally dry enough here that I don't go longer than a week or two in between drives. I could not handle a solid 3-4 month period of time without driving it, but that kind of winter here would be extremely rare.

Unusually warm here in southeastern Washington (mid 40's-mid 50's).
​​​​Took TORCHRD out yesterday for a drive. I want snow, though, this warm weather trend is just not good. Doesn't even feel like Christmas.

Cold (0C, 32F) today but clear and dry.

I've had my Z out of storage since Thursday morning. Drove it to work Thursday and Friday, took my Boss and another employee for a couple quick cruises around the area, drove it to the gym and back today. No issues. Just gotta go easy on the skinny pedal.

Pretty nice actually, especially the last week or so. We don't have any snow for xmas which is pretty rare here. Got some in November but none in December. Not complaining. No snow blowing and not freezing my *** off. That's always nice.

70 degrees, no wind. Perfect. Favorite time of the year. Wish it was ALWAYS winter!
