    Default Katie's, 01/07/17

    It was cold when I drove to Katie's early this morning, but it was not snowing. It started snowing lightly after 7:00AM, but did not amount to much. Then, around 8:00AM, it started snowing more heavily. We had a reasonable turnout today, but most people decided to leave shortly after 8:00AM, to beat the worst of the bad roads. The drive home was intense.

    Default Katie's, 01/21/17

    Strange January weather this week... This morning was 47F, overcast, with intermittent very light mist; no rain.
    The salt had been washed away by recent rains, so we had a reasonable turnout at Katie's, though most people arrived a little later than usual.

    A pretty good Saturday at Katie's...

    I actually went for the first time today. I am moving to the College Park MD area for a new job. My Locost 7 will have to wait until I have a new house before it gets moved to MD, I am hoping it will be sooner rather then later but we have to sell the house in Chicago first. I loved the little tiny Crosley microcar that arrived late, it was tough to work out how they got 2 adults in the thing

    Default A Regular

    I'm a regular at Katie's. I pretty much always park my car facing the front door of Katie's. Below are pictures of my two cars - the Caterham and the Elise. Come say hi if you see me. I'm usually wearing a Lotus cap.

    A cold but clear morning at Katie's. I talked to Kevin (LotusMan1951) at Katie's today. His newly-acquired midget racer sounds interesting - can't wait to see it!

    We are enjoying a warm spell for February, though it was only 29F on my way to Katie's this morning. Later this morning, I took a nice drive in the 64F weather...) The start of a three-day weekend meant a really well-attended cars & coffee today. There were two Elises, an Evora (which I never saw), and two Caterhams there today. You can probably guess from the pictures who had Sevens there today.

    What a beautiful morning! Not at all typical of a late February morning - I saw 57F at 5:00AM today. Last Saturday, same time, was 29F. People came out and enjoyed the morning... Michael D's Caterham, with its clamshell fenders, is a nice counterpoint to my Caterham's cycle fenders.
