Warm Temps Please

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

We need some warm weather!  Unfortunately, the last storm was not near as severe as our November treat.  It’s been a long time since I saw the same amount of snow fall both around town and into Hodges but that’s what happened last week.  I was too busy to run in after the storm but went in last night to check conditions hoping for better.  There is a fair bit of snow but it is so light we were just cutting right though it and clipping the road a little more than I would have liked.  That didn’t stop us from puttin on about 40km though and it was a nice ride except for that it was night and the snow was constantly flying over the bonnet and covering the lights.  Once a few more machines beat the roads down or we get a mild and then cold again the roads will be good going but ditch banging is not possible yet.  On the plus side the ice is at least 6 inches (three days ago so likely much more now with near minus 30 last night).  Also there seems to be lots of good snow forecast on the way.  Looks like we are in for a good old fashioned winter!  For those of you who might head west I am hearing lots of snow but you had better have a mountain sled and a strong back.  I might head over for a rip soon.
