Hows Your Weather

I am getting sick of this weather in Michigan its been cold and warm all winter I like winter sports such as ice fishing cross country sking. The weather has been so up and down that the ice around here is not safe and havnt had much snow I would rather have a real winter so I could be doing these things, its really been boring this year. All I got to say I cant wait till spring comes with the sun in my face driving my convertable solstice down the road driving along the Great Lakes shoreline with the waves crashing .Just dreaming

Its a nice 72 degrees on this lovely sunny day. But yet it still has this cool snap in the wind.

Aggressive body, Black top, Black and red seats, Chrome Rims, Metal Petals, A/C, 6-Disk, XM, rubber floor mats, kappasheild, and no antenna. What more do I need?

OO no please don't forget that Texas is a killer in the summer too. My old caddie does not have ac and over summer we thought it would be funny to leave an egg in a frying pan inside the car. Well lets just say it was burned on the bottom.

Here in SW VA, we have had a fairly mild winter, as well. We got our Solstice on Nov. 30 and have had a few top down days, but not very many! We are looking forward to SPRING!

Hot

Sorry to gloat, but we had to turn the air conditioning on last night.

We have about 600 miles on the car and have only had the top up once. That is why we live in Florida.

Where have you been? I've been enjoying my Michigan sol every day since taking delivery Dec. 28. Store it? NO, drive it.

The weather is windy and DUSTY. Hasn't rained in 94 days so it is hard to keep the car clean.

It must be national news, I just heard on my radio that it has been 97 days since it rained where you are.

Dusty Rose is a great name. If you haven't already done so, please post the name over at https://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/s...ead.php?t=6520

Thanks.

Being just over the puddle from you, it's been the same here. I'm a hockey player and my buddies and I usually get out on the ponds...not this year. I'm too wrapped up in anticipation of getting my new car. I cannot WAIT for Spring & my car to arrrive.
