looks like you may see some interesting cars. I will think of all of you from the ski slopes.

I think Stratton is on the schedule.
The Cruise AV project is very interesting! Good on GM for moving forward to this ... Uber and Lyft are going to go nuts over this in the big metro areas. This is definitely at the top of my list of things to look at this year.

Have a good time on the slopes!

Floor plan is up: https://naias.com/wp-content/uploads...lan-Public.pdf

Volvo and Mitsubishi have been pushed off the show floor. Huh.

No Mazda this year, so we can't ask about the urethra in the CX-5 diesel.

GAC has a bigger booth for their TRUMPCHIS!

Smart got pushed into the Mercedes booth - I mean, they're down to one car left for us, so...

Otherwise, no huge surprises about who's there, I'd say.

What is the weather looking like in Michigan this weekend? Thinking about driving the Golf instead if the snow isn't too much, but need to swap wheels/tires first. I thought I was going to have time this week to fix a couple things on the wagon, but looks like I won't. The bitter cold weather has us pretty busy here.

I'll let the locals comment, but coming from New England it looks like we may catch a break. Temps in the 30s, no snow.

Not bad, we had a heat wave last week that melted everything. We did just get 1-1.5" of snow last night.

NW Indiana / SW Michigan is getting a bit of snow but nothing major. Might get slammed with a band of heavy lake effect snow but hard to predict where that will hit. But that's for right now - not this weekend.

For Ann Arbor Friday looks to be clear, low of 30, high of 35.
Saturday is partly cloudy, low 31, high of 43.
Sunday is chance of rain, low of 39, high of 41.

So we have a bit of a warm up for this weekend - nice! Don't hold me to the above - I'm not a weatherman, merely passing along what I see in the forecast. That said I'm sure anyone coming a distance will be checking the weather conditions expected along their route anyway...

I guess we'll probably bump into each other at the show. Glad you're going to make it, although only for a short time.

The weather models have been going back and forth for the past several days, but it now looks like it will be clear for Friday and Saturday, with the possibility of rain in most of the mid-west on Sunday and Monday. There's the possibility of snow on Sunday and Monday if things change and temperature gets colder.

Noon on Sunday: https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/anal...frzn_us_20.png

Noon on Monday: https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/anal...frzn_us_24.png

(don't mind the way TDIclub abbreviated the links... it stands for analysis )

There really is no real snow here to speak of. Supposed to be 35 to 40 on Friday and Saturday. Weather shouldn't be an issue.
