I know exactly how you feel. Preparing for yet another major snow storm tomorrow night. Misery loves company!

I am so done with it, and it's a hell of a lot warmer here.

More snow storm warnings for tomorrow! I cannot recall this many below zero days. Further, once a winter we would get a random 40 or 50 degree in Chicago and we have had none this year. One day i saw -22 on my SUV (without windchill)!

I hear you! We were planning to go indoor go-karting last weekend but since Chicago got hit hard Friday night/Saturday we had to cancel! ...I mean come on! All of our drives this past summer got rained on/ruined and now the weather is managing to ruin INDOOR events for me! I quit!

On that same vein, I have told myself that I would go run outside as long as the temps are above 20 degrees... Normally that would rule out a week or two all winter. This year I have been able to run TWICE since the beginning of December! I have never remembered a winter so harsh! It is either -10, 30+ mph winds, snowing 4+ inches, or all of the above! It is sad when the north pole is warmer than the midwest...

First time I have seriously considered moving out of this hell hole.

The only good news is that is has prevented any spending on the car, saving money! Instead I just spend all my money on alcohol now (It is a Wisconsin thing)...

Okay I am officially tired of winter and ready to drive my Lotus.
I may have to go and drive a turbocharged Subaru. Saturn doesn't have a lot of go-power in this stuff, and the Burb is just too damned big.

You know not only can you drive year round in Texas, you also don't have to pay a state income tax which equals more Mod money :shift: Sorry guys I used to live in Canada and snow is exactly why I'm here :coolnana: I "used " to feel your pain....

I was in Costa Rica on business and when I came back I wanted to be done. Might be part of the cause.

I do see a black lotus Elise driven year round at the Citgo refinery in Lemont. Damn impressive.

There have been a few people in the chicagoland area who used to DD their Elise, but that was before your time here, noob. :)
Seems many of the original Chicago crowd just kind of disappeared.

Ok. It got down to -10F in Denver last night, so I broke down and ordered the severe weather kit for my Elise.

Its on its way from England as I type this
