Whenever you're feeling down about the weather, just say to yourself - At least I'm not in Canada!! Lol.. We just had a good solid week of -50 degrees Celsius, its just starting to warm up a bit now (sitting at around -30c now)

That's right, some parts of Canada (like Manitoba, where I'm from) were colder than freakin Mars last week.

Eek! Be careful.

I was in your country in August. It is beautiful up there. Expensive, but beautiful.

I drove my wife's IS 250C with the top down a couple days after Xmas. It was around 65F here (SF Bay Area).

I would trade this nice weather for some rain. We desperately need some rain here (and snow in the Sierras).

I just looked at Weatherbug and it says sunny and 59 Sunday. That would be a little topdown time.

Turn on heated seats, and the heater on full blast then you're good to go!

I bought my car last April 11. Hubby dropped me off at the dealership and I was a while with the salesman as he showed me how to use all my gadgets. I left the dealership about 7ish. It was probably 45 and pitch dark. I rode all the way home with the top down...like you said, heater full blast and seats on full heat. I didn't care. I was so excited to have this car.

When I got home we got in his truck to go out to dinner and he grabbed my hand. It was freezing. When I told him I rode home with the top down he just shook his head.

Some people just don't understand. Cars are not supposed to have roofs.

Sure they are! But it would be nice for it to be optional on all cars lol (ie top on or top off based on your preference that day)
