Waitng for warmer weather

Haven't worked on the truck all winter, too cold in garage but I did drive it out of the garage today since the temperature was just above zero.

Ordered some engine parts so will replace valve covers and install cold air intake this spring. For now am looking at getting the instrument cluster gauges all working.

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.

The heaters might even be on sale now.

Truck is looking real good Tip. Lucky here in the Midwest US. A small nat gas wall heater keeps me in business on all but the coldest nights.

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.

Looks a lot like our yard a couple of weeks ago after we got 32" of snow. Most of it had melted since then but we just got another foot today. So much for an early spring.

Maybe for you guys. Our snow you can watch melt. Today I uncovered my garlic, it's already peeking out of the ground.

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.

We never got more than a skift of snow at any one time, and it melted quickly. Pretty mild winter for us. I like it. Blue skies and sunshine today.

I know it wont last long but its 51 degrees at 9:30 am! Might just have to get the mower ready for the year, walk the dogs, and then finally be able to get somewhere on the truck.
