    I have had my fill of Nor'easters, Bomb Cyclones, and snowstorms for the season

    I see the east is getting yet another nor'easter this week. We should be out riding, not shoveling. That is all

    Yea...we were back below freezing all week. Got up to 55F yesterday afternoon. Wake up this morning--snow on the ground. Again.

    I dunno.... 38 yesterday and 24 today

    Miles that is! Mid 30's to mid 40's, almost no wind at all and sunshine.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    I just have to laugh at the new catchphrases the media have for storms.

    I'm in Eastern Ontario Canada. You guys have been getting more snow than us the last few years. In fact, as of now, the downhill skiing season is pretty much ruined. Bring on the snow eh?

    I went for a 40 mile ride on Friday. Wife and Daughter did a 3 hour ride on Saturday. Daughter did another 3 hours yesterday... I had shorts on all weekend...

    Really wish it would snow more so the skiing was better.

    It's been a relatively mild winter in New England except for two storms. But it seems every weekend except one it's been 'just enough' crappy to not get out and ride.

    If I can't ride, I'd just as soon have massive snow so at least someone (skiers) is happy.

    The biggest issues is all the sand and salt that ends up on the road during these late storms, makes a mess on the bike riding through it. I don't have a bad weather bike so I would rather just ride the trainer. I'll ride in colder temperatures if the roads are clear but with all these late storms they haven't been very clear. My bike is still complaining from the salt/sand I road in on that warm weekend we had a few weeks ago.

    We have had crappy storms. It usually works like this: warm up well above freezing for 3-4 days, compact and melt any snow we did have and make it all icy. Get storm, snow 3-4" over the ice, stop. Warm up for 3-4 days and so on. I love winter when we can do winter sports in it, not so much with just crappy icy roads and trails.

    Will be back on the fat bike after this next storm. Once the roads get some what passable then I'll pull out the single speed because its much easier to clean.

    I'm hoping that the tree that's currently horizontal in my back yard due to the last one won't be joined by any others.......
    We'll be back soon, there will be more of us, and next time we won't be dropping leaflets.

    I guess the bright side, if you can call it that, is that I'll have a slightly easier time doing the gutters on that part of the house next fall.
