Exactly Jakyll, It must be rough, especially considering mine hasn't left the garage yet. But I feel bad for you. :D

I got about 430 miles. Then today the temp was 45. snow is pretty much gone or ice now.

This is not global warming. A few facts. The south is having one of their coldest winters yet, if it was global warming, it would be warm there too.

We had the coldest October on record this year.

It may have been 45 here, but on the other side of the jet stream, IE the east, it wasn't warm.

I dunno about the rest of the world, but the term global, means everywhere. I know way up north the temps are still really cold.

Lack of snow = drought, not global warming.

Look at records, it's been nearly this warm before.

Chinooks aren't global warming, it's just a surge of warm weather from the pacific. Day after tomorrow the high's are around 0.

Global warming would be the whole world getting hot, all the time. not just 1 or 2 days of heat.

It's suppose to be down in the lower single digits in NY here for the next few weeks. Some snow with it on and off too. Of course the 2-3 feet is still here.

Arg! The truck said 52 degrees today at lunch! This is the second day in a row with 50+ temps in MPLS, MN! The way I figure, this is about 6 weeks of riding we've missed so far. We have "zip" for snow and now, probably "crap" for ice.

When's Winter Coming? [:(!][/size=5]

Must be nice to have 5-6 inches for the season. I think I may have had an inch for the whole year. Southern WIsconsin has been and is for the most part bare of all snow.

I guess we are lucky - this is my first season as a snowmobile owner, and here in midcoast Maine we have tons of snow. Wish my timing was this good for the stock market!
