Waiting on another severe thunderstorm.  Need to raise the dock because of lake level rising. 

Waiting on parts to fix G8.  AAMCO determined Flex Plate bolts to crank were loose and Flex Plate needs replacing.

May go to VFW for $1. beer for happy hour.

Hoping there's no truth to the idea that a tsunami hit the East Coast causing the rainy weather ...

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

I bought one of these yesterday!
http://www.ebay.com/itm/400482546567?item=400482546567&viewitem=&sspagename=ADME:L:OU:US:3160&vxp=mtr

It's on it's way, just in time because I talked to Andy@Squash Performance and he's going to send out a new billet "hat" for me to try in place of the stock fuel pump, if that fits then he'll make my setup SOON!!!

I finally broke down and washed the Brick.  Front wheels were so bad from Stop Tech brake pads, that I didn't recognize them clean!

Watching and waiting for more thunderstorms...this weather has raised water levels so there's no diving going on and the weather won't allow for detailing the car....ahh, but it's still better then 20 degrees, windy, and snow!

It has finally been nice out here.  The last report showed pretty good weather through the weekend.  You usually get your weather the day after us so, keep your chin up.  It's coming!

Right now were getting a front coming from the south, and it's supposed to rain every day through the week=end.  We are under flash flood watch and some counties have already experienced flooding.

Your dealing with that crap too? We had flooding about 5 minutes from where I live at over the weekend, while I was in Jersey for a wedding. They even had a funnel cloud touch down near Elkton, MD!

Yes, we've been lucky (so far) most of the worst has went either east or west of us.  I know that Philadelphia and Jersey look like they are getting it and also to our northwest has some heavy weather.

Got the plasti dip done on my SHO but I now have blisters on 2 fingers because I was rubbing down the overspray off the paint. I also had plain to finish a bit of painting in the house but with them stupid blisters i might have to wait a couple of days.
