I hope you get nailed with this storm! They are calling for 10"-15" in Northern IL. When ever the bigger storms come through IL they seem to go South!
I've been to about 6 weather sites and they are all saying we are gonna get it.....
It's not gonna happen, that's just the way this winter has gone.
I'm still keeping my fingers crossed.....
Maybe I should have bought another gallon of oil for my sled?
As soon as I've written off the winter and started looking for a new boat then the storm of the year is supposed to hit!
I should have looked for a new boat in December!!!!!!

sounds like we had fun, yesterday myself and one friend went out and rode the ditches,,,had a blast until my friend got sucked into some deep powder, little did we know there was a water shut off underneth, he hit it with his lower radius rod, it whipped him sideways, bent his ifs trailing arm, and by the time we got 9 miles back to my house, his trailing arm was broke in two pieces.....hmm i guess this is the first A-arm polaris.....good thing i had parts left over,,,and in about 15 minutes we were back out riding with 2 more people, damn good time, except for the minor problems. but my sled ran great. no troubles.
