If it's any consolation zt, we've been having crappy weather here in New England as well. There have been thunderstorms nearly every day for the last month, and when it is a good boating day, Im stuck at work! On the flip side, if the weather pattern keeps going like this, I won't have to refill my gas tank again this season...

Funny, I can count on one hand the 'good' days I had on the 'Big Island' nation. sorry to here about the weather 'troubles'.

Over here we have had exceptional weather, even snow in June LOL! Our issue is the extreme snowfall this year resulted in abnormal run-off/melt late in the season. Just Monday they finally closed the dams and now the local lakes/rivers are stabilizing enough to enjoy them. I've only had the boat out once so far, and their was still loads of crap (logs, dogs, crap?).

Crete would be nice. Your 'euro' goes further than mine.

Enjoy.............

Yes it has been rubbish here so far

Most of my interests are weather based motorbikes, car shows and boats so its great, but I have managed to do lots of decorating

We haven't got the Euro here, our pound is weak against the euro but strong against the dollar strange.

I have a couple of Italian bikes and it's cheaper to buy parts from the states and ship them over than buy them from Europe

American car club shows, classic shows, rally days anything really I like my cars too. I've got an Audi UR quattro and a Porsche 928. I was buying a corvette till the missis told me she was pregnant, That's where the 928 comes in (4 Seats but only just)

Cool seen a couple of those. They look like a nice sleeper.

Saw the Rover development car at the NEC classic show they had shoe horned the twin cam cobra version in to one of them, Looked very good apart from the original ignition switch and key for the mustang taped up under the dash They were struggling to get round the mustang immobiliser

Brothers got a Mustang Cobra too 97 version
