Out of storage

I was crazy enough to put my car away for storage during that early October storm and it never came back out. We are having such a mild winter that I could have been driving it all this time. Yesterday, I had enough and took it out. I should have done this months ago.

I wish every winter was like this.

I finally figured I better put snow tires on in late January, and have yet to drive it in the snow (my car sat in the garage freshly washed for that freak October snow).

I think I've hand washed my car once a week all winter.

Between the October snow and nothing during the winter proper, I'm worried about another April 1st blizzard like the one in 1997 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_F...s_Day_Blizzard), where we had 3 feet in the north suburbs.

With my luck, it will snow now. but I will drive it until then.

I did the same thing. Put her away in October and just couldn't resist last weekend. Lets hope we won't have a repeat of 97!

still waiting myself. i have a share in a ski house up in killington, where there's still barely any snow but the threat lasts longer, so i'm gonna try and hold off for a few more weeks

probably will bring the m3 out sooner so i can start getting her ready for the AX/track season, WHICH STARTS IN 5 WEEKS BABY WOO WOOOOOOO
