You just drove through Sauk Centre today and didn't call me on another 'snow day' off of work? :(

I thought about it as I passed by. To explain, I'd have to start my very long rant about the gazillion hour trip it'* been the last two days. Just not feeling very sociable today. If you PM me your info, we can hopefully meet up on my way back home.

Yeah, I can about imagine how your trip was. I made a trip 380 miles in the middle of the largest ice storm the upper midwest has seen in the past decade or so. That was in the November of 2005 and damn was that ever a long ride in a side vented former oxygen delivery van.
Not to mention driving home from work yesterday in the storm was abit harrowing the first 5 miles alone.

Snow stayed away/melted before AutoX this morning.

Eh, I could get you testimonial online from instructors if you'd like I got consistent, only a few random concentration issues at the end, but I've been running a wack *** fever/flu thing all weekend.... I barely made it to the Novice class saturday, couldn't keep my eyes focused on the road @ 7:40am.

Towards the end of the day, the eldest instructor, who normally does corvette/american for his seasons said I had nailed it. A forum buddy who was instructing (who'* gf has an 07 GTI w/ DSG he took around for rides @ break) said I had sorted out the track/car pretty damn well.

No seasons SUCK MONKEY ****. I'll quit derailing and make a thread tomorrow

Ohhh man, I woulda been all over that like white on rice. I miss driving in snow SO much. always having traction all the time is getting REALLY boring

I got a call this morning on my way to work from mom who is like, WTF, ITS ALMOST MAY AND ITS SNOWING.

I look up at the thermometer on my rearview and I'm like, huh...91 here

Someone got the whole april showers bring may flowers thing...and then someone in the other department lowered the temp too much
