White Stuff

It's about time! The snow is falling...Be careful out there! Sure am glad I have the GTP or Yukon. It's gettin' a bit ugly out there.

Oh yeah -- Happy New Year!

We got a foot or so last week...and only 1" so far with this storm, despite the "Blizzard Warning" in effect from 10pm last night to 12am Saturday. We are supposed to drive back down Saturday, so hopefully the roads are clear by then.

Be careful! This is our first good snow all season. It is needed! Just hate driving in it!

Be careful if you come down this way. We have to go to my folks in the afternoon & then a wedding reception in the evening on Saturday. You gona be here for the weekend? or just Saturday?

Yeah -- You guys got a beating! It's nice knowing that when it does snow here in the metro area here, it is gone in just a matter of days.

We need it here tho. The mountains are getting lots, but here in the "city", we've been very dry. It is a blessing, as long as you don't have to go out in it!

Take care & be careful out there!

Holy cow, we even got some here in the Phoenix area! A light dusting in some of the valley areas (which is a big deal for us), but they did get quite a bit in northern Arizona.

I believe that many of the club members are going to be there.

I started a Twisted Racing - Colorado facebook page. I have added the club clash dates, the 1st Test & Tech & the Racer's Expo as events on that page. l

If you are on facebook, look it up and request to be added. I will try to use that page along with e-mails to let members know of up-coming events.

....
And as for that white stuff. I think it may finally be going away! Thank goodness! I am ready for the warm up. The upper 40's and 50's are gona be nice!!!!

See ya!
