    Stir crazy does not even begin to describe it.

    I've not ridden since mid September aside form the 20 Kms I rode my new F800GS home from the dealer. Got to get the first 1000 kms on before April 30th when its booked for the service.

    Keep the faith. Am in DC at present and the thermometer got all the way up to 71. Tomorrow go home to Northern New York where most, but not all of the snow is melted.

    Pretty soon and the WX will be too warm.

    The great snow gods blessed us with a little snow last night as well. I think this is probably the last......

    I have to say though it was quite beautiful to wake up to. The loss of power not so great....

    Here near Buffalo, 60+ and sunshine yesterday, and 50's and overcast since 7:30 this morning.

    Not a bit of snow anywhere.

    Keep the faith. Spring is coming. We got a haevy, wet snow overnight (see pictures form IL above). But as of this evening, most of it has already melted. Mid-50's the rest of the week.

    This was our backyard this afternoon:



    But, truth be told, March has always been Calgary's biggest snowfall month, with the temperature fluctuating around 32F, the optimal snow generating temperature.

    Soon!

    If I were still working in the snow sports industry or able to get out on a pair of skis I wouldn't sweat the snow, as it is I am in Iowa(There is limited skiing here.) and ride a lot due to a lack of other fav. activities. So can relate.

    Hopeful that is your last snowfall and you'll be ridin' soon!

    Saturday was beautiful, warm with blue skies. This morning in SW Ontario, we woke to a light dusting of snow. I am expecting the weather to more predictable by mid-May (joking), although we have had snow fall on Mother's Day in the past.

    I was just outside, scraping and shovelling my way through the freeezing rain, then snow, then freezing rain again, that fell. and blew, all day yesterday.

    There have been warm, dry days all winter that I took advantage of and would ride, but you're right, enough's enough already.

    8"-12" of snow forecst for here starting tonight and running through Wednesday morning.

    I gotta move south. The older I get the more I HATE winter.

    If I can't ride soon, I'll go broke buying stuff from the internet for the GS.

    At least I have a heated garage to work in.

    Maybe that's not a good thing.
