You guys in Syracuse- Utica area, north are getting your share, and it's not even winter yet. You won't be able to ride your bike till July the way things are going.

We have around 40 inches of snow that has fell here so far. The past week has been -30 without wind chill. Today it was almost up to zero.. 32 for the yanks and I was scrambling to find a guy to plow out my driveway. Buddy came over with his tractor and bailed me out. Tomorrow he will haul enough snow away for me to be able to see when backing out of my driveway. Roughly six feet of the white stuff is beside the exit and it is hard to see enough to back out of the driveway.

maybe when you finish your slip n slide, you can decorate your palm tree with some pink flamingos. haha,
It is great fun to ride past palm trees lit up with christmas lights on a warm January evening. see Rallys SE section for Key west ride road trip Itinery (feb7-). I will not be riding all the way there this year, but I have enjoyed about 7 winter rides there. Y'all might too.
It is a great big beautiful world out there

There's lots of grey goo in my crankcase. It was 29F this morning. My commute is only six miles. That's quite far enough for me in these temps.
