I simply had to stop and take some pics when I saw this.
Less than a week after the last snow (in which I did my first donuts), we got another inch or two in Portland last night. So, I went out first thing in the morning to try to find some untouched parking lots and give it another crack.
Interior looks gorgeous too (sorry for the reflection):
Props to Akio Ohtori for the idea.
I’m hoping the NWS forecast starts converging with the European model’s predictions. I’d be able to do so many snownuts!
We got a little snow accumulation in Portland, so I took the truck out to try to figure out how to do donuts.
As a Minnesotan that now lives someplace it hardly ever snows, I have enough mental separation from shoveling snow to unreservedly love the one or two times a year it snows in Portland
I saw this very close to my house the other day. I hope it’s here to stay.
The battery connector on my iPod’s motherboard snapped off after one too many drops. I decided to try re-soldering it myself before rolling the broken iPod eBay dice.
I am a hardcore personal vegan, and I’m not gonna buy no car that means I ride around in some poor animal’s skin for hours at a time. But these all these older European cars that are interesting purport to have leather interiors. Which ones are actually legit? When did synthetic leather start being widespread?
I’m trying to make this a theme song of sorts for me right now
Was amused to find this in the parking lot for the snow hike I did a few weekends ago.
I’m beginning to re-evaluate some of my search parameters. Namely, I think driving comfort on long trips should be more important than engaging-ness.
One that isn’t all busted up this time
Well, it’s gotten to be that time again — the time when I’m checking the vehicles section of CL every day — and I need your help, Oppo! (Repost for the Evening Crowd.)
We had a little frost last Thursday night. When I took my dog out the next morning, I noticed these neat patterns in the ice on top of my truck.
I hope you all have a good one. Or at least a nice day off of work.
