    Ugh... our rains earlier last week cleared that for us. But sure glad we had a good weekend. Sunday was the warmer day and it got warmer still yesterday as the rain came back. Continuing trend thru this afternoon when it's supposed to clear and plummet back to freezing. Yay for Spring weather...

    I cannot wait for the day when I can come on here and say I whipped it out! Antsy is an understatement.

    They haven't run the street sweepers on the side streets yet but,,,,,,,,,,,they did some of the main roads(!) Lilac Ave, which I guess you'd call a frontage road along the freeway, at the end of my street was clean. Whipped it out and took a couple "laps" to a park about a mile south and back. I'd have kept going except it was obvious the sweeper hadn't gone any farther than the park yet. Talk about a major mood enhancer, lol.

    Even more mood enhancing, the brakes stop perfectly straight with no pulling and the steering wheel is dead nuts level, along with it handling better than it has in a LONG time. It's about a 1/4 mile of perfectly straight and level road to the Rib Mt. water dept from my house and I didn't have to touch the wheel once. It'd probably have gone farther except the road curves. That's before doing an alignment even! It must be pretty darn close.

    Upper control arm shims fixed the handling, and the calipers fixed the brakes. I'm a happy camper now, even though I absolutely hate camping,
