Default Request from the Frozen Tundra

It's 25 below zero as I write this . Could some Corvette owners in the warmer climates post some pictures so I might have hope of warmer days ahead ? This is so depressing . Thank you in advance .

Winter fun with the grandson

Damn orca, you folks have got it bad right now. As an old Southern boy I'm quite sure I wouldn't be able to handle that much cold.

Currently 42F in Holly Springs NC. It will reach 70F next week. Our parakeet, Elvis, is molting like crazy indicating an early spring. Pic below was taken today at 2PM EST.

Here is me last summer. It was nice and warm.
In fact the very next day on my way home from MacMulkin it got up to 98 degrees. Hopefully that warms you up.

I drove in with the top off this morning in All area (it was 27 degrees, but I dig the cold).

Nothing wakes you up on the way to work like a BLAST of oxygen!

OP - was just through your city last Saturday. Had to go to Oshkosh to pick up a vehicle for our local RAM dealer. It was about zero when we were there, so glad I didn't stick around for the -25* temps.
