Good morning guys, -2 degrees this morning. Only 46 days til spring, 16 days til Daytona 500! @drivernumber3, thanks for starting Feb's.

Wife and I went to the Red Wings game on Wednesday, they beat the Sharks 2-1 in the shootout.

Exciting time for Detroit Pistons basketball; they acquired Blake Griffin on trade and last night's game was his debut (first full Pistons game I've watched in a loooong time). They beat the Grizzlies 104-102, Griffin led with 24 points and 10 rebounds. They should have a pretty solid core now with Andre Drummond (C), Reggie Jackson (G) and Blake Griffin (F).

Wow what a change a day makes!?!?! Yesterday I travel west about 90 miles for a meeting, and the sun was out and it was nice hardly needed a jacket in the afternoon.
This Morning another story for sure the snow is blowing and piling up and it is about 15 degrees.


January's winner fort he photo contest was ZIPPY02 and his Red Monte Carlo.


Anyway update on the new photo contest, check the link the theme this month is "Sunshine" because we are all having Cabin Fever.
Check the link for it (if you have a great photo of your ride outside in the Sunshine and you haven't used it in the MCF contest before it will work).

Good morning gang. Its about 40 and raining here. We are making Super Bowl prep... I am looking forward to a close high scoring game.

My divorce and settlement seems to be dragging out forever. She wants to not have to work or support herself...I don't get it. I fully support my kids and am trying to get custody but it probably will not happen. I just don't want to support her too.

When its finally finished I want to replace the engine my Monte. I am debating on SC or turbo! Its fun to plan... just trying to make the dollars line up! Haha

Good morning guys, 0 degrees here. We got about 5" of snow yesterday.

I got a pair of 1938 Michigan plates that are in very good condition and got a steal on a 1954 Michigan plate. My offer was accepted on a 1924 Michigan plate that looks to be in better condition than the one I have.

Superbowl LII was a good one! Philadelphia wins their first Superbowl, defeating New England 41-33.

Good morning guys, -1 degree this morning and we got another 1.5" of snow overnight. We're suppose to get another 2-4" tonight, 3-6" Thursday night and 1-3" Saturday night. Then it finally warms back up above freezing next Tuesday.

My sister and I are going to the Red Wings game tonight.

Last night, Pistons beat the TrailBlazers 111-91 and are on a 4-game win streak since acquiring Blake Griffin.

Good morning MCF! It's snowing again here. I think we have a total of roughly 6 inches on the ground. But that's spread out over the last week. Not all 6 inches at once. Got about 2 inches or so, so far this morning. Made for a slippery drive home from work this morning. The 2 wheel drive RWD in my Silverado made some fun corners. WooHoo.

Good morning guys. Yeah I'm sick of winter, I'd like spring right now. Hell, a couple weeks ago it was warm enough to open the house up... IN JANUARY. There's been some wacky temperature swings this winter.

We got about 3" of snow this morning during rush hour, the commute was slow. Now it's showing another 4-8" for us Thursday night into Friday.

My sister snagged Red Wings tickets for the game last night from a client of hers. We were row 1 right behind the Wings net. They lost 3-2 but still a cool experience being literally right at the action.
