    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.

    I had two near collisions, just on the short drive home from dinner, as guys tried to sling shot out of side roads onto the main road. I should have stayed home but I don't cook. I took a picture of my car in the garage, and of the back yard, that I'll try to post later.

    I'm going out now to see whether my snowblower will cut through this stuff; it's pretty wet.

    What exactly is that white fluff. I know I have seen it before in the distant past, but what is it?

    I get a warm fuzzy feeling knowing they feel sorry for us.

    But the best thing is being able to post pictures again. It's been a couple of years.

    Hmmm the only ice I know is in my drinks ....

    All joking aside I do miss real seasons as all we have down here is warm, hot, steamy hot and solar surface temperatures....

    Just about six inches of fresh slushy wet crap here in the Black Hills today. But it is melting quickly, streets nearly clear. Should be riding this weekend for certain!
