Default Snow came to late to Ride in April

Well group, here in Northern Minnesota (Grand Rapids-Hibbing area), we have received just about 15" from the Snow Storm that blew in around 9PM last night. See attached photo of ruler taken at 8AM this morning, we were just about 12" of Snow on the railing, more in the yard. Sure would have been nice to get this 2 week ago, where we could actually have been riding on the trails. Was amazing, that we seen Motorcycles out cruising into Hibbing at 3PM, riding dirt bikes on the trails, and over a foot of Snow the next morning. Well, this should take care of our area and eliminate any thoughts of a dry Spring.

Sweet.. I wish i got some snow. Here in southern MN the ground is nice and brown still.. its over 50 degrees right now too. Well actually if there isnt enough snow to ride on i would rather not get any at all.

How long do you guys think that snow will hang around up there for? And does it seem enough to ride around on for awhile or what?

Maybe i can make it up there to ride my sled a little cuz my dad is working up there. I doubt that will happen tho. That would be sweet to get a little bit more riding in.. Is it good enough to ride around on for a while?

This storm is unbelieveable, 12" yesterday at 10AM, 23" reported at Grand Rapids, I'm guessing 27" here in Nashwauk, as I baraely can keep the driveway open to get on to the highway. Glad the 6x6 Ranger is hungry and willing!! Problem is though, ditches are still full of Water, and like Bill indicated, temps are forecasted to be around or above 40 degrees the rest of the week. Might want to get the boat/motor ready to go, fishing for frogs on the back 40, or driving downtown anyone? Wonder what Foxworthy's comment would be? If yer Readneck when?

You should go install some pink tassles on the handlebars so he feels at home riding mommies sled.
