    Wow! Warm, downslope winds, and lots of sun have melted a lot of the Thanksgiving snow in the past couple of days. We're probably still 25% covered, mostly leftovers of the big drifts, and in the shaded areas,...sure have not had to winter-water any little trees!
    Just FYI,...I've learned how to easily repair vintage foam seatbuns. I've never seen anything like it before, and it's terrible simple and cheap to do. Upholstery foam, some contact cement for foam, and an electric turkey-carving knife! Foam 'sands/grinds' with a 40 grit wheel. Repaired all of the Spider's seat bun defects perfectly,...

    Not sure about Camaro/Z28 seat buns, but the Fiat seat buns are not reproduced and cannot be replaced,...!

    COOL INFO!

    Wow! Lots of wind and nearly 60 F,...we're finally doing some serious melting. My driveway is almost clear of snow/ice,...first time since Thanksgiving.
    Fiat upholstery arrives on Tuesday,...YAY!
    Enjoy the weekend! The nice weather ends Monday AM,...

    Man, we almost got rid of all but the big drifts from Thanksgiving! There's an easy 2.5" of fresh snow now, with a lot of cold weather forecast for the next week+,...bummer. Nice to have a taste of the good weather, though. Especially after two months of cold!
    Drive carefully!

    We probably got close to 5" here. I threatened to drive the Z, and drag the hoses out to water last weekend, knew that would change the weather pattern

    Funny, I thought the same about my Camaro! Driveway had just finally cleared,...I wouldn't get it TOO filthy,...
    NOPE! About the time I thought it, the wind began to blow and then the snow came in. Luckily, I DO NOT have to winter water up here (yet),...but glad that you guys got more moisture!
    Busy with Fiat upholstery!

    Started snowing this AM,...we're supposed to get another 2.5", on top of the snow from a day ago, and the remaining drifts from Thanksgiving.
    In my 50 years in Colorado, I have never seen this much snow stay on the ground for this period of time.
    Like I said, no need to winter-water here!
    The cold weather is sure not making Fiat Spider upholstery easy! Oh, well,...it can wait.
