I took a sled out today,I can ride in the field west of our house.Along the tree line,the snow is about 2' deep or so.I'm having fun while I can.The temp this morning was 7 degrees,the snow is PERFECT!! I will go out each morning till its gone. Almost having fun again.The 71 Ruppaha just runs better every day. Woodchuck,a  friend from town,brought out 3 sleds on 3/31.The snow was getting sticky,but I got to ride 2 AC w/Wankel 303's & a Yamaha 300. Those Wankels are a fun sled.We had fun.It was his birthday too.Hope you had a good one. Later.

I've been taking one sled out daily.Temps are below 20 degrees in the morning,I quit riding before noon. We got a light dusting the other day,then had some strong wind.The snow moved & covered a lot of the dirt.Riding isn't too bad,BETTER than in the previous years.I'll take advantage of it.Bought some more gas yesterday,91 octane,NO ALCOHOL!! $2.80 a gallon.I can live with that. 2utp

Mostly, Once it gets cold enough to snow, any time you get a north/north west wind you can pretty much count on getting some lake effect stuff. About the end of January or so once the big lake starts to freeze over it slows  down. Some times we have to deal with lake effect every day for days sometimes weeks. Trust me, you can get tired of it
