    I once asked a Canadian why does there seem to be a disproportionate amount of C-bodies in Canada over the U.S. considering the difference in population.

    He replied, We need'em for the trunk space to carry the firewood, eh?

    You haven't really seen a Canadian Car until you pass one on any highway in Saskatchewan with running boards on it!

    But we need that in the winter to help protect from the pit run they spread on the roads.

    Double edged sword - cryogenic hibernation for 5-6 months is a great preservative but years of road salt melts more than ice.

    I'm seeing something I haven't seen since I've been down here.
    Long rainy days like Boston in July.

    It's been "cold" and rainy here in Chico for the past four days. Haven't started my Newport in a week, but I did drive the Gremlin to the store and back three days ago in a break of the weather. I'm hoping for a sunny Christmas day.

    The worst part of the weather here right now is the roof blew off our part of our church a week ago. Guys have been up e every day checking the plastic and sandbags to make sure they hold. The good news is the Insurance comeuppance is covering it all except the $1,000 deductible. The bad news is it can't get fixed until January. As much as we need the rain here in California, I wouldn't mind a break for two weeks.

    Welcome to climate change. Why should we have all the miserable weather.
