    I just wheel my sled onto the driveway, remove the belt from the clutch, fire it up, sit on it and do a few rev ups to about 5K. Love the 2 cycle smell but really missing the full throttle bursts...

    I've started to get reports of folks riding in northwestern Maine and way up in The Crown of Maine . . . but while they have started grooming in some locations it's very limited riding . . . no snow right now where I live.

    There's hints in the extended forcast that below normal cold temps will be settling into the northeast starting this Friday. They also suggested it doesn't appear that this cold will move out anytime soon. If we get cold air in place and it sticks, we will get natures snow guns going for sure with all the weather (rain so far) that's been hitting NE these days.

    We have a white coating in Northern Nh but not much else. I did a long hike on Saturday up on top of the mountains and even on top, there wasnt much more than a foot. I feel real bad for the local tourism industry workers, they really depend on snowmachines and skiers. The ski slopes are making snow but not many folks will drive up unless there is natrual snow. I was in the local pizza hut the other night and it was empty. A local guy started a snowmachine rental business last year with about 15 sleds, this year he has at least 30 and they are sitting right where they were delivered.

    I'm not taking any heat for Kenny's actions.

    Actually, it's kinda scary to see it full throttle.
    Zero to 60 in the backyard, stuff happens quick.

    I just hope it snows soon to get him back to normal.
    The whining? Ugh.
