Thumbs up Winter As It -SHOULD- Be !

Very nice indeed ~

For those who don't know Az. yes it gets bugger all cold there but almost never actually snows .

We got 1.9" of rain in downtown Los Angeles in one day this week, I live out of L.A. and had fully loaded wheelie trash bins floating past my house....

The Santa Catalina's to be precise. Mount Lemmon is one of the peaks in the range.

Yea I don't miss the snow and cold-we have only had frost one day here and most days are about 55deg in winter. The weather was a big part of why we moved here. Lots of rain though but I like it.

Post Snow Driving

I can't say I miss the snow much, I left about the time I began to drive so I'm not overly proficient in it .

I was up before sunup raking 100 + gallons of wet leaves and dog poop, easier to do when it's damp & cool out .

I'd hate to be shoveling snow again .

I thought it was bad in Nebraska. Six inches of snow here and eleven degrees.

Warming up today to around 25. It's a good thing. I have a window regulator to change.

Hiya Nate! Was your last post in response to the message I deleted? The comment about 23 degrees Celsius?

Talking Winter Weather

Hiya ! .

Yes, it was .

It's a balmy 45* F here in So. Cal. last night, I've been chasing a hard hot starting issue and think I have it licked (carby floats too low) and had a nice nippy pre dawn ride this morning to test it out .
