Thanks for creating the thread.

It's hard to believe that Christmas is less than three days away and the beginning of 2016 isn't too far away after that.

I share your sentiments and hope that everyone reading this message has a great holiday season with safe travels.

Wow, that's pretty toasty weather for the Midwest.

Another cold front is headed down from the North and the high temperature for Phoenix on Christmas day is only expected to be 55.

Thankfully Santa is prepared for the cooler weather.

That is warmer than I would have thought.

I read the other day that the weather experts believe that El Nino has altered the weather patterns this winter and made the historic hot spots cooler and the historic cold spots warmer.

That said, 26 is still too damn cold for me. I don't know how you can survive the winters up North.

"Weather Experts", OH, you mean "the anointed one" speaking from Pennsylvania Avenue?

There is a saying we have it goes something like this:

What does a South Dakotan do when it gets to 0?

Puts on a coat.

What does a South Dakotan do when it gets 20 below?

Merry Christmas Steve, XDCX, and all the members! What a year. We made it, but I don't know how. Anyway, I'm still here, and will head into 2016!

Thanks for the Christmas wishes - it's great to see you on the forum.

Sorry to hear that 2015 has been a struggle but that seems to be the case for the majority of the OLDCO dealers. It's hard to keep a business viable when you're still faced with the overhead that came with running a new car operation.

Best wishes for the Holiday Season for you and your family and I hope the New Year brings happiness and prosperity.

It's also cool to have you and possum post in the same thread - in the old days it was common to see both of you online at the same time.

Thanks for the New Year's wishes - I hope you and your family has a happy and prosperous New Year.
