How warm is it?

Warm enough to grill. Brother's cleaning out the Cougar, behind me.
Cooked some steak, brats, chicken, and hot dogs. Used Excalibur steak rub. Good eatin'!

Question How warm is it?

Warm enough for freezing rain and a little snow mixed in!

Should be in the 40's though right through the weekend, so maybe I can fire the grill up!

I have never let weather stop my grilling, but where I live now, that isn't saying much.

Standing in front of a grill (natural gas, don't have the patience for charcoal, I grill 3 or 4 times a week) when it is 110 degrees outside it gets a little hot, but right now with it being a chilly 75 degrees it is nice to be around the flame.

Chilly 75 degrees??? You have got to be kidding me man :p I would be in t-shirt and shorts if it was 75 degrees here. I sure wish it was 75 degrees over here in Ohio. This morning when I got in the car it was about 34 outside.

Ohio's weather is all out of wack. One day it was in the fortys, next day we had snow on the ground, then the very next day it was 55 degrees outside. It was been doing this all threw January.

Yesterday, and the past few days, I had to scrape frost off the window. Today I went outside without a jacket. Still a little chilly, but not near as much as it has been before. Only snowed here about 3 days. I just hope summer isn't hotter. Maybe it'll be colder? (I hope.)

Yeah I got a cold the first week of January. The cold part has gone away but my ear is still clogged or something. It is driving me crazy lol.

I hope it does not even think about snowing anytime after the first of April. It would suck to try to autocross in the snow

Yay for accelerants!!!

i'm hoping to do a little grilling this weekend for the superbowl. IMO, nothing is better than something fresh off the grill. Steak, chicken, brats, burgers, hot dogs, porkchops, etc.

At home, during the summer, we usually grill for dinner around 3-5 times a week. Just easier to do that than heat up the house with the oven.

I could wear shorts at work. Gas stations don't care, as long as they're decent. Some nice cargo shorts. Also could wear them at the cinema, except Friday and Saturday late shows. Now I can wear basically anything I want, because I just enter info for Career Services.

I may be getting a 90 Camry V6 or a 97 Contour I4 in the future. Mom's gonna move to Montana, and grandma can't drive very well. So I should be getting one of their cars. Hope it's the Camry. It's clean. Has some rust on the back 1/4 on the driver's side, but it's minimal. Also need to fix the fender and dent trim, and sunroof is off track, but the Contour is probably worth the same price. Gets great gas mileage, though, but Camry has under 90k.

Had an injector go bad. Got it fixed, though. But my bro does auto body and some engine repair, so if anything should happen, he should be able to fix it. Out of class he's done an engine swap on a Civic, replaced his head on his Cavalier, and done some engine work. Done a lot of other stuff, too. I'm in electronics and can fix quite a bit of stuff, too. I would like to learn more about engine swaps and the like if possible. Probably not gonna happen if I move up to Montana.
