Winter Storage, feeling the blues

Wish it was that easy just to pick up and move to a warmer climate. My coupe is off the road for the winter. Beginnig to feel the blues, can't wait for spring. As I'm writting this, I'm looking out the window at heavy snow flurries. BC.Boy I'll send you a pesonal message. Looking for some advise. Recently had a post with starting issue. I'm need to do some optispark work. figure I'll do an ignition upgrade. Ooooo boy. looks like this going to be a pain.

Balmy 45 degrees today in Pennsylvania. Last week we almost hit 75 one day. At this rate, my Winter projects will be done before Christmas.

I really like winter projects. I don't feel rushed to getting them done. I also appreciate the warmer weather when I can drive with the top down.

I got a few packages from Corvette America. New door panels in one of them. Thanks God the UPS driver gets to my house before my wife comes home from work. It give me time to unpack and stow (hide) the parts.
