    4 inches on the ground and they are calling for the bad stuff to hit in a couple of hours. Gonna be mildly ugly.

    i would guess the trails close to the I-95 corridor are skimpy at best. I'd check with shin pond and up thru the west side of the County. they've been getting some serious snow in the last few weeks where we just got a mix out it. My local club has parked the groomers. They'll do more damage than good.

    Thanks for the trail report . . . so far this is shaping up to be among the worse of my riding seasons. Only did one ride . . . out of Lincoln.

    I turned 40 on the beach on Kauai. Twenty five years ago last week. Turned 21 out of the country on business. In a green suit.

    I turned 21 on a cruise in the middle of the Indian Ocean. No, it was not a luxury liner.

    I'd like to ship my snow to some of you folks who need it. The snowbanks on my driveway do not need any more. An ATV with a snowblade on a long downhill
    has limitations and I think I've reached mine. Hopefully, not much more will get dumped. Fast and furious for awhile.

    Rain? Snow? Both? No one is certain of nothing, but a lot of wind. Loaded up with firewood just to CMA.

    Lot's of fishes around here, I'm cruising into double nickles this weekend :mad:

    That's good Zap. It is a little ugly here and I am getting low in the wood shed. Hoping I will make it.

    It's been a cold winter up here, we still have wood left that we planned on burning this year but it will depend on the weather if we might burn some shoulder season wood planned for the fall of 2013.

    It's been up for two years.

    We're solidly into the 6-12" forecast here in Johnstown. I always close my office when Richland School District closes. Highly likely we'll have a snow day tomorrow.

    It on the way Dix. The rain just started moving over us in the last ten minutes headed your way. Turning to snow in a couple of hours or so. Our major ass kicking starts after sunup it appears.

    All heavy wet stuff. Forecast at 10 inches or so.

    Well, it took it just twenty minutes for that "rain" to turn to wet snow. Pouring down. 39 degrees so nothing is gonna be sticking for a good while.

    The 30's belly is full and it is cruising, the cupboard and fridges are stocked as is the generator gas.

    Stay safe gal.
