Spring started yesterday! At least the calendar says so.

Apparently Mother Nature and Tesla didn't get the memo.

We had our 4th snowstorm in the last 2-3 weeks. My kids had so many snow days that they'll probably be in school until July 4th!

Tesla says "mid 2018" for many new options but they haven't changed their configurator! The current S/X configurators say delivery in June. I don't see why the Model 3 configurators can't open up their lead times similarly. It would help Tesla determine interest levels in various new options!

My calendar says "Spring Begins" on March 20th. We're forecast to get 5-8" of snow Friday night/Saturday morning but I fail to see, at least on my calendar, where it says "Ha ha, just kidding. Winter, beeyatch!" on the 23rd or 24th.

I shouldn't complain... we haven't had those "nor'easters" like you @Brokedoc. I wonder if this one coming for us this weekend is going to head your way next week. A 5th nor'easter?? Not possible, right?

Yeah spring.
And don't they teach people to turn your wheels towards the curb when parallel parking???
Came back out to my car yesterday to find this:

Luckily, my wheels were turned towards the curb, so it just pushed my car into the curb instead of setting off a chain reaction.
(I actually know the owner of the Acura. No worries - we're still friends. :))

You wouldn’t be so forgiving if it was your new Model 3!

I'm glad I got out of New York on Tuesday (originally planned to be there until 5 pm Wednesday). Unfortunately my A/C broke last night and now I'm waiting for a repair (any minute). At least it's in the 70s F here. Could have been sweating to death :mad::mad::mad:

The main problem here is the fact people freak out when they drive in any kind of "rain"
My commute is going to suck because the sky is in fact falling.
