What is going on weather wise.? Yesterday, woke up to 3″ of snow. That’s more than we had all winter. Cloudy day but sun came up long enough to melt snow  on sidewalk into puddles.  By  3 PM started turning  cold again . This morning found yesterday’s puddles seduced by ice.  Our morning walk was a slippery,  bone chilling 15  degrees. My  beautiful ,  3 day ago,  blooming magnolia tree although covered with king size sheets, resembles a young fruit tree full of dead mahogany colored peaches.

Am thinking I didn’t quite finish telling you of changes made to make our scooters as  useful but less expensive  than our deluxe scooters. If you are not use to my style of critiquing these vehicles,  I tell it like I see it.  So here goes. If and when you want to resell, you won’t  get as much as  the Deluxe resell prices. But  then  you didn’t pay as much for your Palmer Lite either. When a customer calls us asking year and model of a Serial # we give it out but not the name of owner. That’s a negative if you plan to resell it as our more powerful model. The good news, we continue to supply parts for everything we make as we have these past 44 years. Now you’ve heard the up and downside, here’s an  upbeat item. Tho they don’t have a dash panel, they all have  Battery three color Level Indicator Light so you’ll know an approximation of how much power is left. Some of us don’t pay attention to how far we’ve gone.  Another good point, all Lite vehicles have full suspension and Mag wheels. To confirm these observations, they  had  those of us who scoot around on office chairs all day ride the Lites.  Agreed opinions, seems a bit faster than  our more powerful vehicles. They are not, but reason is they are  lighter.  Also we were told  all the Lite Palmers  are 48 Volt systems. We office mechanics think 48 volts must go faster than the  24 volt scooters.  The younger gals liked the Lites.  We voices of wisdom and experience liked the heavier scooters.

Warning, Warning, Will Rodgers, past word count.
