What's going on up north today? Looks like it's been dumping in NW Minnesota since last night. How deep is it getting? It's starting to get cold and windy here. Winter is going to be here by tomorrow. Too bad the cold looks snowless here so far. The annual DCUBA day-after-Thanksgiving camping trip had snow on the ground, but now it's gone.
Yeah, I don't think these guys were in a real big hurry seeing as how it's still brown around here with no decent snow in the forcast. I could still go fishing in a boat. In a BOAT! In DECEMBER! lol. this sucks.
We have a few fluffy inches on the ground now. It started up again this afternoon too. There are already sled tracks through one of the parks in Crookston - I only wish they were mine!!!
The roads are still shitty from the first go-round, but relatively driveable again. Tuesday night had me on glare ice with bald tires on a 50 mile commute. As Murphy's law would have it, I ended up sliding under some railroad crossing arms as they were going down.
As of now, it's cold enough to hopefully stick around and get deeper!!!
took the carbs off the XLT to clean them. Is there anything but the oil bottle that is not bolted to the air box?! All 3 gaskets were soft mushy and ripped when bowls were removed. guess it wont be running tonight.
I'm loosing my mind, but as long as I keep the part that tells me when I gotta pee I should be OK.
I really wish the lakes would have had a chance to freeze over more than the "glazing" they have now. Most of (if not all) the trails around here cross swamps and lakes. It's certainly going to be a year of shit ice. Good thing the ol' 500 water skips like a champ.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snooooowwww!
Up here the prediction was "a possible significant event" does that mean rain? snow? hail? hell on earth? I mean even I could go and tell people a significant event might happen some time in the next week
Westman - I just hear you are in a blizzard warning. Hopefully that means enough snow (if the wind doesn't blow it all back down to Iowa) to ride on! I'm not sure what the difference between winter storm warning and blizzard is. Wind? More snow? Does anyone know?
Ya we are in a blizzard warning or whatever the hell. Been snowing ALL morning non stop, tho it hasnt shown a ton of snow on the ground really. But were supposed to get quite a bit. Its supposed to get windy tonight or something. Just got out of school early too.
My sled isnt running worth a damn so i dono what to do.
Im planning to go out there real soon and mess with it. Hopefully i can get it figured out. I should go get gas and oil right now so i can ride it tomorrow if its not too windy and there is not school.
