Since we are in a somewhat unique geographical position up here, and I am hoping for a change of seasons, here I will show what all of these seasons are for you folks and how they relate to cars. Also chime in with some of your state's unique seasons. Let's begin:

.

Yup, self explanatory. Even on the backroads you get all of this joy. Most of Portland that lives there hides out during the peak of it and waits for people to go back home to CT, MA, RI, and NY.

It is gorgeous but god damn just let us enjoy it. Miata pic for the people
