Practice event, so I got about 15 runs in. So. Much. Water. Fun to practice keeping momentum through the muck.
Drove my wife to work for a while today. Somehow, I found ways to entertain myself until her meetings were done.
The STI is a beast in the snow, able to get through anything and willing to play whenever asked. It’s misleading seeing other cars spinning their wheels and not moving at intersections and being able to pull away like normal. I’ve got “performance” winter tires on it, so not all-out snow tires, but they’re perfect for…
This is a news photo from Snowpocageddon, and there are not one, but two Saabs among the sea of trucks and SUVs.
Someone in a Dodge Charger with bald tires was stuck in the snow in my neighborhood. He had been idling so long to stay warm and charge his phone that he ran out of gas. I filled up a gas canister for him and right after I was done helping him, these two older guys in an Audi Q5 drove by.

It was awful. But my reward is a “poster” (a JPEG) that says “I’m not adding numbers I’m ADDING VALUE”
They're delicious. Definitely in the top 5 best "meat inside a bread pocket" foods.
12 runs, and no cone-shagging required. Any PNW oppos ever go there? It’s in Monroe, WA.
Growing up, my brother played baseball, and my parents were heavily involved in that. They knew all of the other high school athletes and their parents. I know, #notallathletes, but at least 90% of the baseball, football, and basketball players at my high school were scummy assholes. At least half were outright…
“The car lurched backward...”
To save you some reading, he says you should take Uber instead. I think it’s a slim margin of people for whom this makes sense. And for all of those people, public transit makes more sense. For me, Uber would cost at least $2,000 a month for just my commute.
I got 1st in Stock FWD!
