I don’t know about you, but I’m about done with this snow thing. Not only did the snow come too early and too deep, but I was unable to move my MG into shelter before all this cold white stuff appeared.

Let me explain. I intended to move my MG into an almost cleared out side of the garage. Then we were hit with freezing rain. Well, my car cover was wet and it froze to the car! I couldn’t get into the driver’s seat to move the car. I waited a few more days for a thaw but it rained more and froze. I now have an ice cube in my driveway. Then the snow… Well, you can guess the rest. The car is now bonnet-deep in snow and ice.

I wonder if this is what happened to the mastodons centuries ago. They wanted to move to a warmer shelter and wham! Ice and snow. Well I hope I don’t have to wait for an archeological team to excavate my driveway and find my relic MGB.

Check out these and all the upcoming events and activities. See you on the road…

In this month’s issue:
> Holiday Party and Driving Event awards. See pages 4 & 7.
> What Is It Like To DRIVE An MGA? See page 8.

Don’t Forget—Membership Dues are DUE!!
