    SNOWFLAKE!!! (Did I win? What prize do I win?)

    Snowflake spotted. 37 degrees @ 7:42AM Est on my way to work.

    Do I win anything for being the first snowflake of the year? I'm thinking all those that guessed a time frame of Mid-October should have to pay up for ruling out the cooling power of Northern Michigan.

    Sure did enjoy the extra boost this morning!

    Should we make this a sticky, so the next 425 people who get a snowflake can't say, "I didn't see the last post."? :weirdo:

    I know.

    This might be the earliest snowflake in USA history.

    It was a 104 in Corona yesterday.

    I remember we discussed having a pair of sunglasses icon when it gets over 100. VW messed up on this one.

    I got this loud beep and a Gas pump icon and a Please Refuel message, what does this mean?

    Also, WTF does Bootlid Open mean? I see that every day? Do I need a better exhaust or something?

    They should have a heat stroke icon for when the temp is higher than 100F. Also Geese, you can't tell me you've never seen a snowflake in Tucson? Come on? I see them occasionally on "cold" Phoenix mornings. Doesn't it get a little cooler down there?

    [Bob Barker voice]You win!! Yes, there is a prize...you and your family will spend the next 7 months living in one of the coldest, snowest spots in the continental US! But wait, there's more! You (and your family) will pay outrageous heating bills, spend long hours indoors staring at the TV, and be unable to wash your Passat until next May!! By then, you'll need to look at your old window sticker to tell what color your car really is!! And you'll be doing all of this in....your.....brand new...thinsulate boots and snow parka!!! [/Bob Barker voice] :wink:

    Enjoy your prize - cause a lot of us are going to be in exactly the same boat soon enough (sigh).

    Things that make my day... The wonderful response from Altair 4 regarding the prize that I won.

    Oddly enough, this sounds like the same prize I won last year but I didn't get the snow parka?

    What's a snowflake?



















    yes...obviously, sarcasm. Only get to see mine when I go to NC for my winter getaway...still unfamiliar enough that I get nervous when I first notice a foreign light on my display!

    What else does it chime for? Snowflake, washer fluid, gas. Anything else? I admit it scares the crap out of me each time it goes off.
