Did you hear the "diiing" yet?
 
Well, here it's official.... Driving to work, I heard the "ding", followed by the : 3C warning in the dash......Winter is coming.....
Oh, I hate this sooo much. Did you have the warning yet, or is it still balmy in your neck of woods?

AnotherGeezer 10-03-2012 07:56 AM

I hear my dingbat neighbor all the time.

The 37 degree dinger.....not quite yet.

G-Moussa 10-03-2012 08:11 AM

still above 10C here in Ontario, expecting it to dip soon!!

BentValve 10-03-2012 08:32 AM

Supposed to be 82 today. I'm still wearing shorts and sandals.

Fudman 10-03-2012 08:38 AM

Not here yet but it's coming...

Nervous 10-03-2012 08:41 AM

Still +25...+28C here (at least today), in Maryland.... Anyway, I code that 'ding' out, so, I'd not hear it....

I haven't driven yet today, but, we have snow in the backyard and all over the mountains surounding the valley here in Missoula. So, I suspect that if I was outside my car would be diinging. It beats the smoke, but, I'm glad it didn't snow heavily because the trees are still leafed out and heavy snow would have been a nasty mess of broken branches and closed streets.

doru 10-03-2012 09:37 AM

Yes, it snowed last night here too......Man, I hate the white sh*t......

pleiades 10-03-2012 09:48 AM

How many of you knew what that diiiing was for the first time you heard it?

I didn't. So naturally I was like, "Oh sh*t, what's wrong, wha'd I do?"

jmanyoyoyo 10-03-2012 09:48 AM

Ha not at all! California heat wave :D coastal temps around 80f and inland 100+f

I actually read the owners manual when I purchased the car, and knew right away. :thumbup:

I've come to hate winter also, it takes so much more effort to do anything and driving is right up near the top of the list. I used to ski 30 plus days a year and that helped. But, my knee fell apart, started by a motorcycle accident decades ago, and I need a replacement. So, the last while I haven't been able to ski.

The first time I heard the Ding I'd just topped McDonald Pass over the Continental Divide the temp dropped and I heard the noise. My first thought was, crap, what now?

Chisum 10-03-2012 10:52 AM

I hate the winter too, it's the time of the year when all the snowbirds return to Florida. I have never heard the low temp ding.:D

Reefin' Dude 10-03-2012 11:35 AM

That's hee-larious.

I can't wait until sub-zero February.

Nline6 10-03-2012 01:25 PM

No diinnnggg here yet, was 44*F here this morning. Had a high of 80 on monday. Even though you made this thread, we can all count on a "whats that dinging sound" thread in the near future.

EDIT: I have been enjoying my heated seats on my early morning commute though

radd 10-03-2012 07:34 PM

if this temp drop warning happens here in jakarta, we all in deep sh*t :D

chiefwej 10-03-2012 07:35 PM

It was over 100 yesterday, but only made it up to 97 today. So yep, fall is coming.

doru 10-03-2012 09:44 PM

Shut up Chief....

not yet here but soon it will :(

tmvE39/E53/Z32 10-04-2012 07:56 AM

Still in the upper 70F here in Atlanta. I don't think I would hear the "ding" as often as I used to in Seattle.

BRD1234 10-04-2012 08:12 AM

Miami is never cold enough, the coldest ill see here this year is like 58 degrees F.
