Pretty dramatic. I think this annual event should replace that silly thing they do with groundhogs on February 2nd every year.

Let me tell you, after 7 mos and 3 days, it is so-o much fun driving my V. Compared to a Chevy Cruze ECO, you just can't imagine.

I can relate here in NH!! My V just got out two weeks ago ... And oddly enough my wife has an SRX and I thought about getting a Cruze for my work car but really wanted AWD so I have a Subaru Legacy.

Mine's gets driven as long as it's not covered in snow :). My garage ain't big enough! (otherwise it too would sleep through the winter)

You probably have more hills than we do, and AWD is a must during the winter. Our "hills" are very gentle in comparison.

You must have A/S tires. I remember driving my V with the original runflats when they were nearly worn out. I had zero traction in 1 inch of snow.

Over here on the Shore we have an event each March 21 - "The Burning Of The Socks". Bonfire lit, Bloody Marys, boat shoes on, socks off and in the fire.

It always amazes me how quickly it starts after so long.
Ease of starting after storage is usually testimony to the storage preparation - and the care and maintenance given to the car on a routine basis.

You must have had yours on a tender, I was treated to an anticlimatic starter click when trying to start mine after winter. :)

Yup. I edited out the part with me fumbling around disconnecting it.


sounds nasty...looks like the dog knew what was up.
Didn't realize he had walked into camera view, but I didn't edit him out. He deserves to be famous.

As soon as the dog saw you go for the drivers door, he vacated...

I've spent a certain amount of time in Detroit and I cringe driving there in the summer...can't image how bad winter would be.

Have fun!

Same as Boston and same as Chicago with small variations. Having four very distinct seasons makes it more interesting.

Variety makes life better. It's all good.

We have hills to spare!! Hell if I can make it up my driveway everything else is easy!

I used a battery tender this years too worlds of difference on the start up
