80 Degrees F Today.

FINALLY A NICE DAY IN THE NE!

It was great, first time i fully enjoyed my car in a long time. Keep in mind ive been driving this car for all of winter, and it has gotten quite frustrating about how little it takes to make this car go out.

Finally got the top down, without blasting heat or heat seaters. Even got to put the windows down while the top was too!

I dunno im just half venting, half jumping in joy about the weather today. Im restraining myself from going out and just wasting my whole tank of gas just driving and enjoying it.

Nice, it's 60F sunny here today, didn't get to drive it unfortunately, had to babysit the kid. It's going to rain the next couple of days, so no top down driving. Enjoy it while you can.

Weathers been nice up in NE England to the last couple of down, which gave me some nice top down action.

Nothing better to relieve a stressful day at work than driving past all the hot students on the way home, with top down and music screaming out!

Woke up this morning to five inches of snow and 29F, everything was white, as much as I hate snow, it was a beautiful site.

Actually I work Tues 1:30pm to 9:30pm. I get 5 1/2 hrs sleep and on the road at 4am for my 16 hr day. Then I get another 5 1/2 hrs sleep and work 16 more hours.

Then I'm off for 4 1/2 days over the weekend! since I do not have to be back to work till Tues afternoon.

It works for me.

Not far at all - Probs about a 20mins Drive if the roads are quiet. I'm actually a Man U fan but do love Newcastle (I always want them to win..unless of course there playing man u!). Shearer is a legend around newcastle for sure.
