    Hah. Yeah right. Its 25 degrees here. My truck is literally frozen. The silver looks kinda cool with a sheet of ice on it. :eek:

    Anyway, I just wanted to rant aobut the cold. Dont know how you folks up North survive. Anyone else notice how much our trucks HATE cold weather? Takes the truck forever to start up...

    Yup its cold
    Do they sell warm clothes in Florida?
    Agree its probably a shocker to your normally toasty warm 05. Mine is forever covered in salt, sitting in a snowbank until at least Easter.
    Hope it gets more seasonal for ya!

    It is supposed to be almost 70 tomorrow for the high. You always leave the house with a jacket over the short sleeve shirt this time of year. Freeze in the morning and sweat in the afternoon.

    Right now it's mid 20's in Erie, PA and it feels like shorts weather compared to weather we had previous to today. It's awesome!

    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    It stays almost the same temp year-round out here in Northern Cali: 50-65 degrees. But every once in awhile we get a cold morning and some puddles freeze over, which makes everyone freak out. Thunderstorms are rare too and when one occurs, it makes the top story for the evening news.

    I lived in MA for 2 years. That was brutal. One year it was -20 for a week. Can't deal with that kind of cold hence I have a mental line drawn across sections of the US I will never live in. Basically anything above say- North Carolina is off limits.
