Default How bad I hate Winter!

Let me be the first to say Winter S%*ks. Last week in NJ we hit 77 deg. Yesterday an today we get hit with a Noreaster 32 deg freezing everything in site. I get up go outside figure I better start the Suburban (wont start) battery dead! Nice, I don't use the truck unless I tow or there is snow on the ground. So I go over to my Pontiac Solstice (Big Mistake) go to open the door and rip the door handle right off (Nice lets make the handle out of plastic so when it freezes it will snap) go to the passenger side get in start the car let her warm. Well let me tell you I found a car thats worst then my older Corvette on Ice, the car slid to work. Come to work and Typhoon Performance Marine looks like a skate park, maybe instead of selling boats I should put up a sign $5 all day skating arena (I CAN'T WAIT FOR SPRING?) I would hate to be further North were they got hit with 12" of snow. As I look in the showroom and see all the brand new boats all I can do is fantasize of boating and warm weather ahead.

Tell me about those temp swings. We were 82 on Thursday and today it is only going to hit 69.

Frankie I feel for you, I really do. I feel about as sorry for you as you did for me when you phoned me from the Miami show when it was -25 at home.
We're headed to Bonita Bill's for St. Paddy's Day, I'll ask the server to throw ice at me so I can feel your pain ......
