Default Happiness in the Midwest...in January is....

...A Saturday afternoon drive in 50 degree weather. Damn, I needed that. Anybody else?

You bet, It was 56 here in southern Indiana today. Gave me a great chance to test out my new brake pads. Great to be out and stealing a day from winter.

We have yet to experience a true winter storm this year (fingers crossed). No snow on the ground, frost is out and people have been playing golf here IN THE MIDDLE OF JANUARY !!!

Me thinks global warming (if it even exists) is not necessarily a bad thing for those of us in the middle of the snow belt.

It was 62 degrees here in Kansas City today! But I was on the radio all day and then announced a hockey game tonight. I barely saw the light of day. But I'm getting my Corvette out of storage Sunday and letting her stretch her legs!

I would have liked to take mine out for a quick run, but I was trying to get caught up on a long overdue project.

Was near 60 here today and unfortunately I had to work. Tomorrow is supposed to be about the same so maybe a little cruise will be in order.

Pffft... alley thawing out = muddy. So much salt on the streets they are white and as cars are driving can literally see the salt dust.
I too hate winter. Going to start a petition to ban winter.

Didn't unveil the 'Vette, though it was tempting. It was about 53 yesterday here in Michigan. More importantly, after 8 months, they reopened I-696 freeway as of 5PM. That's a long sigh of relief for those living in Southeastern Michigan.

I just got back from a 5 day trip to Cuba where it was 80-85 every single day, but back home here in Ontario I know that we had a few days this week of close to 50 degrees. It's not going to be that warm today (probably 35 at the most) but it'll be sunny and there isn't any salt on the roads so I'll take mine out for a spin today for sure! It's sure looking like winter isn't taking hold on anyone all that seriously just yet this year.
