Default How cold is it where you are?

Here is a picture of the car temperature gauge when I pulled it out of the garage today, just to start it up. It's been sitting for a few weeks. We will have a windchill of -20 tonight. Just wondering how cold it is where some of you guys and gal live.

Default Cooler than normal !

Lovely sunny day at 11C/51F with a light breeze.

Snuck in some more painting in the dappled afternoon sun on the patio today instead of looking at snow through a Rangie's windscreen...

Going below freezing again tonight

Take the ME location out of your profile then, real Mainers brave the winters in tshirts! I kid, I kid.. but I am excited to see someone on here from the same state! I don't suppose you are in the Scarborough/Portland area and have a VCDS do you?

Currently 32F with 90% humidity and 70% chance of parcipitation here in Portland. Not too awful, but things were a little frosty this morning.

I do brave the winters in a T-Shirt, just not in Maine!

I am up around Damariscotta and do have a VAG cable, but don't plan on being back up there until May. The S8 stays in FL, but I can certainly bring the cable up....

Thanks for the offer but I will need it before then.

Damariscotta huh!? Since you spend time around boats I am sure you know lots of the riff raff around South Bristol, especially if you have spent any time at Coveside! I have lots of good friends from up that way.
