WINTER, will it ever end?
#31
That fat rat lied, said we were going to have an early spring. No such luck here. Although we’ll hit around 60 this weekend, it’s supposed to be back down in the 40’s next week.

Yeah, that other Fat Rat "Wiarton Willie" lied too. It seems that now matter what "they" say, it'll be the opposite. cant' trust anybody these days!

Here, in Los Angeles, it's Springtime. Pollen is giving my allergies a workout. There are a few errant clouds rolling through threatening a light shower here and there, but, after having a good and wet winter ( appx 110% of average, after years of drought ), the ever bombastic Network News on the TV, will say " when will the showers end?" Be awfully carefull what you wish for. I'm happy for all the rain we got this year, and the snowpack in the mountain resort areas hasn't even started to melt off yet, bringing more water to the lowland reservoirs.
It will be summer soon enough, and then the news people will be saying " another triple digit temp day tomorrow, when will it end?"
There's no use in griping about weather, only the Man upstairs controls such things.

I hear you all! The weather is one thing we have no control over...……… or do we? Its' "global warming" !!! Hmmmm.
We did not (yet) get snow today as forecast, but i's damn cold again. Up and down like a toilet seat (or other things that go up and down regularly)
Why do people complain so much, it's too cold, it's too hot, it's too...……….
Yeah, I know, I complained first about the winter never ending.
Happy Spring to all,
Geoff.

Today I declare Winter officially over!! Now it's "Rainy Season"

I finally took the Mustang out today for a spin primarily to check out the newly rebuilt shifter and have to report it works waaay better than before. It's a treat to finally be able to change gears without having to yank on the lever, so job done! The car ran great after a long winter's sleep.

Good job Geoff, I bet it felt great. Mine is still about a year from being driven and I can't wait. Glad the weather is better there, where I am, we usually only get winter temps for a couple months and even then, it only goes in the mid-20s, today was in the 80s or so, all I know is it was hot working on my project.

 Tom, 80's! I wish. We barely got above 50 today with a cool breeze, but at least the sun was out. And yes, it was nice to get the old girl going again.
Next weeks forecast is rain most of the time so if nothing else, it will wash the rest of any remaining salt off. So not looking like I'll be driving the Mustang for a while.

Glad to hear you got it out for a drive and no problems. I bet it’s nice to have that shifter working better too.
Wish I could agree with you about the end of winter as we have more snow in the forecast. I think it’s going to be mostly rain, but a high of 40 tomorrow. I still don’t have my car back yet anyway, but jeez, enough. And I think where my car is they are forecasting 2” or so. Another crummy spring. Huh
