This morning, Katie's was a case study of a favorite theme of mine - "Will there be a Cars & Coffee this weekend?" Today had many of the features that cause people to stay away:
1.) It was cold... 11 degrees when I arrived at Katie's at 6:15AM. (Yes, I slept in a bit.)
2.) There was a lot of salt on the streets. (Salt is like kryptonite to exotic car owners.)
3.) The forecast threatened snow and freezing rain, as early as 9:00AM.
Regardless of the above three facts, we had a reasonable turnout of people, at Katie's to talk about cars. My shot of the lot at 7:19AM shows that the trucks and SUVs outnumber cars. Still, it doesn't matter what car you drive, it's largely a social gathering.
One thing I have experienced, several times - if we have another week or two of similar conditions, attendance will increase, because people get tired of sitting at home.
