    A busy Thanksgiving weekend at Katie's.

    Default Katie's, 12/02/17

    While this first Saturday in December was chilly, it was well worth getting up so early. On the way to Katie's I saw the amazing near-full moon, and I pulled over and took a crappy picture of it.

    Default Katie's, 12/09/17

    OK, I get it. We're in December, and it's supposed to be at least winter-like. I don't even mind weather in the 30's. I even understand getting a dusting of snow - it makes for a prettier Christmas. What annoys me, though, is our local government deciding that it's up to them to prevent the impending ice age - they sprayed their anti-ice chemical goo on the streets on Thursday night, and put more chemicals down Friday night and Saturday morning. All this for what you could politely call 'light flurries' Saturday morning.

    As a result of all the chemical crap on the roads, most people did not come to Katie's Saturday, and those of us who did, largely brought boring, everyday cars. Still, there were a couple of dozen enthusiasts at Katie's, and (as we do, rain or shine), we talked cars.

    A day at Katie's (even without my fun car, or any fun cars) is still a great time, talking about cars and stuff. There is an astounding amount of knowledge at Katie's. (And, yes, some of their 'beater cars' are far nicer than all my cars put together.)

    Winter Saturdays at Katie's can be different. Locally, we had a light snow from Friday afternoon thru the evening, so the roads were a bit slick Saturday morning. The cars that show up on mornings like this tend toward the utilitarian, so we see AWD, or German cars, or both.

    One of the more interesting vehicles there today was a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. This is a Jeep with the Dodge Hellcat 707hp engine; an interesting combination. Not everybody drives what you expect, though!

    Default Katie's, 12/23/17

    Today was Christmas eve eve. It rained overnight, so it was wet, but warm. It was 45 degrees when I arrived at Katie's, with no winds.

    I think the relatively low turnout this morning was partially the weather, and partially a result of people having left town for Christmas.

    No matter - our group of Katie's regulars celebrated the season with breakfast at Katie's.
