keep calm and build a snowman


We've got one of those storms with the sideways blowing snow at the moment. This is getting very tiresome isn't it Red.

Also, its 2:30 a.m. and you are lurking about that questionable shop downtown.... I'm not judging..

How big is your garage? Seems like you should be able to cram both in there.

When my dad would store his summer car in my garage, we bought those wheel dollies (like these http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/80035...FQSg4AodNBIAQQ), so we could put all four wheels on them and basically push the car as far into a corner as possible.

It's pretty small especially because I have a bunch of wood against the wall on one side, could not even put the BBQ in it this year. Can barely walk around it without leaning on the car. Can't wait till summer so I can finish my project I had started in there, building a computer desk. Winter kinda came suddenly and never got a chance to finish it.

If I built a house I'd probably build a garage twice this size.

Here's something really weird, so last night we had that little storm. Maybe a couple inches of snow on the ground and on the cars. I drove home from my night shift, expected to get up with tons of snow to shovel and take off the car... but the car was clear! Most messed up thing ever. It actually warmed up to around 0 and snow started to melt right after the storm. Never seen that before, but it was nice! I still have a few inches to shovel but I might not bother if this hot weather stays.

And those dollys in the link you posted have my inner child suddenly wanting to go down a steep street on one when it's summer. Hold on tight!

Red: I think you have at least a good month before you can think about taking those snowtires off.

Oh those are all seasons, not that great in the snow lol. I will probably get winter ones next year though. Definitely a month+ left of snow covered roads, but we had a few days where it actually melted all the way to the pavement and stayed that way for a day or so. Weather has been so sporadic in the past years.

We got 7 inches of WET snow overnight. It's perfect to build a snow man since it's sticky, but it's also 3x as heavy as regular snow. So much shoveling, it just never ends. I did not even do that great a job, but I just really did not feel like it so I did enough to fit the car that's it! lol

June can't come any faster!
