Them and the 'possums. Light sprinkles now, I'm going to guess it's over for me. Maybe now they will take off the burn ban.

Re: Rain in Texas

Lot's of road kill coming to work today. Ditches are full.
Thought I saw a dead fox on the road.
Steady rain and idiots still go 80-100 mph on the Westpark Tollway.

Monty, did you lube your shifter linkage yet? You will probably need new felt/BMW seals. Homemade are fine.

Trip to Boston took all my time. I've got stuff together to change the oil, and replace the headlight with HID bulb.

Now the felt seal thing has me confused. I thought seals were made from seals, not felt.

Sounds like weather an LT can handle, as long as you don't need a snorkel....
