Quiet winter so far

It’s been a pretty quiet winter so far – no crazy snow (yet), but there have been a couple of ridiculously warm days that had me tempted to unplug Mia from the battery tender and take her for a ride. Now we’re back to weather that more resembles a proper Midwest winter, and we’ve got a winter storm warning for this weekend – which means it’s proper Subaru weather, haha. I might have to find an excuse to drive Lapis somewhere this weekend, just to see how she handles in proper snow. (Don’t worry, though, if we’ve got a blizzard, nobody’s going anywhere. Better safe than sorry!)

So, yeah. Not much in the adventure realm for either of my girls, so instead of rambling about places I’ve been, I’ll share one of my favorite pictures of Mia from her first winter.  I dragged her out on a snowy afternoon to get some pictures of her in the snow, and this one turned out rather well. (It’s a rare picture of her before she had the black swirly decals on her! Which I’ll probably replace this year, I miss them.)

Lapis’s odometer reading: 3554 miles, approximately
Mia’s odometer reading: still sitting at 7792.7 miles

Lappy’s first snow!

Yep, I woke up to a snow-covered Lapis this morning – her first snow ever! (Speaking of which, I’m much less nervous about driving Lapis in the snow than I was when it came to driving the old car in the snow – hooray all-wheel drive!)

I’m glad I no longer have to ride around on Mia in this weather – pretty sure neither of us enjoyed it, heh.

Lapis’s odometer reading: 2765 miles, I’m pretty sure
Mia’s odometer reading: same as last time, she’s in hibernation for the winter
