Re: First snow

Some freezing rain overnight (snow futher north) made my drive real fun this morning (40 minutes late for work). Roads closed, fender benders, people driving off bridges. People just can't drive, happens every year!!

I winterized my bike in early November and have no designs on waking it up before April 1st.

So bring on the white stuff for all I care.

Same here. It sucks not being able to ride all year but there's other activities to get me through the winter months. FWIW, it snowed here too..only a dusting in the Detroit area, but up to half a foot in the northern 'burbs...

Snowmobiling and snowboarding works well for me!

Snowmobiles are awesome... we just dont get enough snow by me to get one. At least quads can be used all season. Either way the key is finding something to keep you occupied

Re: First snow

We got some snow this week on Mt. Lemmon. Thank God that's as close as it gets to me.
