Haha, actually I rolled into work the other day with the top down, was 32 degrees outside. Not bad at all with the windows up and heat blowing.

wow close call hope theres no damage

thats why I dont take my car out in this kind of weather if I dont absolutely have too. I am so out of practice driving in snow it makes me nervous, but I learned to drive in PA, used to drive to highschool in snow all the time.

mines been in the garage as i completed my VCG. i'm kinda pissed the last bolt at the last spark plug hole (closest to the firewall) was stripped out i put some lock tite in it and got it back in there as best as possible. Super weird tho. i hope it doesn't leak :-O.

as for that once i finished my VCG and put everything back together i started the car it and ran rough as ****. threw a code for stuck intake switch valve ( or something like that). in the midst of me freaking out i figured id clear the code, pace around and give it one more shot. 3rd time was the time and it started, warmed up and ran fine....i almost had a ****ing heart attack. ran it for like 15 mins in my garage without a hitch :-D.

hits the snow in Tminus 1 hour to adventure back to richmond....maybe some doughnuts on the way.

Well we tried to take my cousin back to the airport to fly out this morning, go there only to find the flight was canceled 10 min before we arrived at the airport, She was headed to Chicago next avaliable flight was Thursday 6:00AM.

My road report:

Norfolk is better at snow cleanup than VA Beach. 64 was mostly clear, they even took the time to clean out the HOV lanes, except they didnt plow the entrances to the HOV 264 was pretty much crap. Why are there sections of 264 plowed and other sections completely covered, I am talking between like go a few blocks on clear road then hit snow covered road (not talking about overpasses). And why is it that every shopping center along First Colonial road can hire someone to plow their parking lots, yet the city cant plow First Colonial Road (where VB General Hospital is).
