It’s not even been three days since I put my Mini into winter storage, and I already miss it.

I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that it wasn’t running for the past few weeks. Of course, there was snow and salt on the road and I wouldn’t have driven it anyway, but I took advantage of the few unseasonably warm days we’ve had to get it running again and put it into storage. At least it saved me a month’s worth of storage fees. But I just want to go for one more drive...

Also awesome: The reaction at the shop I’m storing it. “When you said ‘an old Mini’ I thought you meant like 2002 or 2003! We’ll make room for it in the showroom.”

See you in spring, friend.
