    I'm Tired of this Already!!!

    Another 25cm snow overnight in Calgary! Will I ever be able to ride again? This is getting depressing... This global warming has to stop. Am I the only one who is going stir-crazy!

    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....

    Thanks guys, this is the time of year when you just about can see the end and then another potential weekend ride dissappears right in front of your eyes. Guess those of us that can should try and enjoy snow sports when they are there rather than wishing our lives away waiting for spring... complaining sometme feels like theropy.

    Mother Nature gets in one last lick for April

    A "vigorous" low is moving into our area with snowfalls of 25 cm forecast for some parts. I love it.


    P.S. It's getting better: upgrade to "Winter Storm Watch".

    Makes it easy to stay in and keep renovating. Finished this today, looking at the home stretch tomorrow.

    You better get going then, because you're supposed to get rain. Our system isn't showing much vigour so far.
