About 130 miles west, and 50 miles north of Helena. The mountains do make for some spectacular cloud formations, sunrises, and sunsets.

Got my footers poured today, hopefully I can get the forms pulled this afternoon before it rains. Supposed to get above 70F this weekend, first time since last Sept. setting a 100 year record for time between 70F days. Gotta love global warming! Hope to get walls poured, so I can get the 280SL out for its first long drive this year.

The weather has been fantastic the last two days, sunny and in the high 70s low 80s. Great weather for top down driving. I ran all my morning errands in the 107 both days, traveling the longest possible routes between stops to maximize the pleasure. Looks like a day of rain tomorrow and then back to the good driving weather on Friday.

UPDATE!

I still haven't dropped the top for a season starting meaningful drive.

That is all.

That is disappointing, even here in Green Bay Iíve had top down a few times. Granted most times had to wear a jacket but once or twice without. Hereís hoping weather turns around over in Barrie!

I've gone topless three times so far this season and I may do it again today. Wouldn't it be great if people came over to the car at stop lights and put dollar bills under my windshield wipers. Maybe I'll play loud disco music and see what happens?

Nobody gets out of this life alive.

Be careful what you wish for. You might get a surprise.

You've gone topless 3 times so far? I hope you didn't scare the viewing public too bad.....

If you take that 11.5 hour drive to Waukesha in August, you should be able to go most of the way top down.
