Well, yesterday, I finished the new redwood upper back deck on the house. The temp was a comfortable 70° and, while a bit breezy, my chickadee visitors enjoyed their water drinks

Aftewards, I connected my boat to the truck and drove it down to Bishop, putting into a winter storage area...

When I woke up this morning...

This is supposed to continue, on & off, all week----guess I'll have to cancel the track days at Willow Springs this coming weekend with the SoCal Cobra group. Damn!

PS - Guess I'll have to break out the long-johns...

I don't see my friends in the picture! I guess the Stellar Jays have migrated farther south to get away from the cold. BTW, how's the downstairs project coming along? :biggrin My sister prays for snow every day now in the hopes of starting the ski season early. She's looking forward to hopefully meeting you for a ski weekend with the family in Mammoth Lakes this winter. :thumbsup Time to put away the GT...

Ralphie, you must be getting old and senile. The new guys don't realize it, but he shows the same pictures every year.

Would you rather I post pictures with the date/time stamps? Say yes, & I will. I hope the St. Louis area stays clear of this weather change, as it put a damper in my desire to track my GT with the SoCal Cobra group. This was my one chance to track the car this year, as I was afraid that Rally attendance would not allow me to get home prior to major snowstorms. I was absolutely correct in this assessment, and while I dearly miss having been able to attend the Rally, I would have never gotten my car home. It's your call, but I wish I could have been with you. A month earlier, and I would have been.

Next year, let's have a little competition on the track - maybe Dave will set up a "group" for the 2 of us, and we can go at each other...

(I hope I don't lap you more than once - you better think about a major power upgrade)

:cheers

How about - if you lose, you have to clear my driveway for the next winter?

Nice work there Ralphie boy on the decking. Did you get a chance to treat it prior to the snow?

We are supposed to get mid to high 80's down here in L.A. in a few days, maybe all that initial snow will disappear in time for you to consider Nov. 4.

Sure hope so.
