Welcome to the club, I was in St Pauls from Monday until Thursday lunch time, just got out in time to miss all the snow!! You will have to post a picture of your ride!! Hope the snow goes soon and you can ride again!! It's too cold for me to ride here in Seattle, but at least there isn't any snow!!

All the best

Howdy Bob. Welcome to the forum. Like Todd mentions, we have snow here too. Ours never melts though, or at least it seems that-a-way. It just keeps piling up. We got a bunch of rain this morning followed by the inevitable 6 inches of new snow. Only another four weeks of winter left though...... Hahahahahahahahaha, and I got bridges to sell - and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep......

Hello Bob and welcome to the website from the U.P. of Michigan. We are getting the same weather you had, thanks for sharing. Right now the wind chill is -17, and that's with the wind kind of slowing down. And my furnace quit a few days ago but I still have a pellet stove working. Now pellets are getting scarce. Great! Let me know if a warm up is coming any time soon, I sure could use it!

Welcome here! Looking for 48+ degrees today in upstate NY. Last Thurs to Friday we got 26" of snow. There are robins in my yard and the junkos haven't gone back to the arctic yet. Yep, no such thing as climate change. I get crazy waiting for riding weather to happen up here.

I live on a lake up here in the mountains....and when I start hearing the frogs then I know spring is just 'round the corner. Well, started last week, so hopefully the cold weather will stop, the rain will stop, and the roads will dry ;)

Oh, and welcome, about time you stop lurking ;)

Good to see that you have 'uncloaked' and have now learned to join in. Sorry about our weather here, we have got over the hot stuff, and today is a pleasant 22C (about 74F) at 10am, so it is nice outside. Only trouble is an old injury has decided to kick in, and I cant walk properly, so I may just have to ride :D

Welcome, I really feel for you guys in the Mid West, we get the rain and you get the snow. Tomorrow it's suppose to be in the 60's so the wife and I are ride to the Oregon Coast. We usually get about a week of really nice weather in February then it all goes to hell until middle of May.

Hate to say it, but it is 68 degrees outside tonight. I think that we were the only state to not have snow this year (13). Won't be long and the hot weather will be here then you guys can ride with me. Lots of bikes on the road this last weekend. Hang in there, it's heading your way.

Ride safe, and smart. Asphalt is like #1 grit sandpaper. Dave
