Looking for a Weather Window

Looking for a Weather Window

As Cavallino approaches in January, I’m making preparations to get my car to Florida. We’ve had an exceptionally mild winter so far here in Upstate New York, but I know things can turn nasty very quickly. I decided to try and take my 330 America to Maryland and park it in Radcliffe Motorcars where my friend Richard Garre can look after it until I drive it the rest of the way to Palm Beach in the third week in January. Getting my car out of the Northeast will avoid the majority of the sloppy stuff, and with some luck, the drive down in January will have less weather drama.

I’ve been watching the weather closely for the past week or so, trying to coordinate a good time to drive down and catch a train back home. The problem is weather forecasting seems to be getting worse, not better! There doesn’t seem to be any more reliability in the forecasts further than 24 hours out. With each passing week I got closer to getting snowfall, so I had to commit to something soon. I decided to choose Monday the 7th of December to make my journey, but driving down with clear roads may not happen. On Saturday afternoon, the snow began to fall at my house, and by evening we had 6 inches of snow on the ground! The weather on Monday still looks O.K. to drive, but I hope most of the roads will dry by then.

Wish me luck!

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the Tomyang.net pledge drive so far. Your support lets me know I’m not just doing all this work in vain! I appreciate your pledges, and it always reinvigorates my efforts to building this website for continued enjoyment for us all!

Just a reminder, I’m looking for a new Vintage Ferrari Project. If you have, or know of a restoration project, please let me know. It would be great to restore another car on this website! My E-mail.
