Cold weather?
All of us share a common-bond with our M/Minors but we have such diverse weather-conditions to cope with. For those who are in moderate climates and can use their M/M year-round can consider themselves fortunate.
For Ray Costa in Illinoi the weather inhibits his M/M use from November due to the cold and a foot of snow. I can empathise with him, my M/M was 'parked' in October.
However, there is a foot of snow here too and it will be here ( and accumulating more as winter progresses ) until things start to melt in April 2019. It might even take longer as this mornings temperature was minus 33 degrees celcius. Such is life-on-the-prairies, and why we look forward so much to summer and favourable conditions for driving our M/Minors.
Happy New Year fellow M/M Forum members,

You are right Ray,
Those of us in temperate areas are lucky to be able to get out and do stuff in the old classics. I believe that you have to make the most of what you've got, which is why I like to use both my Midget and Moggy all year and appreciate how lucky I am. As I said to the other Ray roll on the Spring and for both of you may it come early.

Not been to Saskatchewan, I know it's winters are hard as the wife's uncle and aunty lived there when they first emigrated, but if its as beautiful as Alberta & BC in the good weather you're a lucky man.

Happy New Year Johnnysmileys with beer

To all of us, Happy New Year! Our Minors get a bit older every year, but we never change, do we? We've been to half the provinces of Canada, but not Alberta and Saskatchewan. I'll put that on my bucket list, but I'll wait for good weather. I doubt SWMBO would want to drive that far in Miss Marple, and certainly not in Mr. Toad, our green '52 MG TD. Even so, we've been to B.C.,Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes, but never across the Canadian Rockies. Sounds like a good idea to me.

Hi Pete and a happy new year,
The Albatros is a former Dutch cargo ship built in 1899 as a North Sea clipper. She is one of the oldest sailing ships still afloat.

All the best Johnny

hi there,
Thank you John for your reply.
A most interesting ship indeed with a chequered career and still floating and being used every day. A joy to see her in her splendor.
A vessel much like the Thames sailing barges used so many years ago, using exactly the same skills to construct them, as the "Albabtros".

Thank you Peter,
If you hadn't asked about the Albatros, I wouldn't have researched a little and would have been none the wiser myself. It's typical, when you have past something by for years, you just accept it and it takes someone from afar to really notice it.

All the best Johnny

Well lucky enough to get the car out again this evening and go to the local car club only myself and another guy in our classics, but a good meeting as always.
Weather a bit better than my trip yesterday in the Midget to the printers to collect the club magazines to. Sun was out briefly then. Then it turned to liquid sunshine.

All the best Johnny

Well the heavy rain last night washed all the salt away. I needed to go check on the old folks the other side of the county, so a great chance for me and Anne to set out in Boris the Morris.

So off to the Royal Estate villages with Anne on the look out for Range Rovers, high viz and battle gear at the ready.

All the best Johnny

What a great trip! It was minus 9F when I walked the dog yesterday morning, and we had six inches of fresh snow this morning. I used the snow blower to clear the driveway, but there is no way I'm taking Miss Marple out in this stuff. There's salt everywhere. She's ready to go, though. All I have to do is reconnect the lead to the battery. The tank is full and the oil is fresh. I'm having a knee replaced in mid-February, and I'm hoping that by the end of March Miss Marple and I will be able to hit the highways together again. My wife admits that while she prefers the Traveller to my MG TD, she would rather have a more comfortable car. In the U.S. there aren't too many old British saloon cars. Rovers are rare, and I've had my share of Jaguars. One was enough. Maybe a Rolls Royce or a Bentley? They are plentiful and not expensive. I could sell my Traveller, buy one, and have money left over. Imagine that.

Sounds a plan Ray,

Hope the salt goes quick and the knee op goes well

Here are a couple more from yesterday and look forward to seeing shots of Gurnee.

Cheers Johnnysmileys with beer
