I feel your pain though we are somewhat warmer than that....maybe not as you are probably referring to zero celcius, so we are about the same at 32 F.
We did just get back from visiting our daughter on Maui though. Saw a 51 0r 52 green F1 driving down the road there. Looked nice but I could not catch up with it. Someone on this forum maybe? Anyway spring is on the way!!!
Not to hijack the thread, but just had to say hello to blsd49. We were almost neighbours. I have some land in Sagle that I was going to settle on but wound up just over the state line thanks to Sunset magazine. I had it sold, but the buyer gave it back last year, so when the weather warms up (snow goes away) I'll be over there to list it.
So back on topic, it's been 0 or just below at night, but 10 in the day so our snow has been receding. It dropped an inch of fresh yesterday morning, but it melted off by afternoon. Repeated the same today, so it's now mud season.
Yeah wish the winter would be over. Find myself staring at my parts pile everytime I go in the garage. At least reading on here gives me motivation and brain storming ideas so I will be ready come good weather.
Grab one of the 55,000 btu propane heaters and a 100 pound propane bottle. Warms up my oversize 2 car garage to t-shirt comfortable in 30-45 minutes. Best $350 I ever spent. Amazing how much more you get done when it's toasty warm. A carbon monoxide detector is a good idea but mine's only triggered a couple times in the last three years. And always keep the bottle outside.
Took my F1 out last Sunday after a few snow storms during the week. Most of the snow was gone, the heater works great. Our road, gravel, was kind of muddy. My wife said as we fish tailed up the driveway that it needs to be reminded that it's a truck from time to time.
Measure with a micrometer, mark with a crayon, cut with an axe.
Grant that is just sad . I have been working on mine in the shop but I'm waiting for the snow to go so I can sand blast and then summer temperatures so I can paint .
Allan, you gotta get some pic's out there. Today our hockey starts late, so I'm going to start cleaning some small parts for the truck I have in the shed. That way, when the snow's gone, I can get the truck back in the garage and start given'r. Have a great weekend.
