Sorry you guys. That is crap for you that there you still don't have any snow and it is worse than usual for you. At least here we have somethin here, not that I can do anything with it. Won't say how long it'll be here though, cuz the temps are goin up here too and the snow is slowly fading away. I guess all we can do is cross our fingers and wish huh?

it really depends on where you are...in SE Wisconsin is was in the 40's until after Xmas last year, even up North there was crap for snow. And we only got one, yes ONE, snowstorm (if you could call it that) and that was the snow for the whole year. Trails only lasted about 2 weeks. That's about as bad as it can get. I'm still saying this year is shaping up better, but I'll change my tone if theres another grassy Xmas break.

here in northeastern wisconsin only one county had the trails open for 2 days and it was because the trails belong'd to a vintage snowmobile club and it was their annual ride. otherwise the rest of the week its to be in the upper 40's like 45 or higher there goes all the ice and any chance of a white christmas

Its been REAL cold here in Maine over the last few days....below 0 and sigle digits during the evenings and upper teens during the day (F). It is forcasted to warm up though over the next few days though....up to about 40 or so. But fortunately it doesn't sound like it will last. Lakes around here are froze up solid....6-8 in of ice.

Its still early guys.......have faith!

Hey Pman,
Don't give up hope yet. I am trying to remember what year it was, Maybe 96 or 97. We had basically no snow all year. I had given up and was going to toss in the towel and then we got all that snow in mid feb. That was the best riding in the last few years.

Here in 97 we had lots of snow then it started melting then we had a week long blizzard that buried everything and when it melted it flooded.

Sorry guys, the memory slipped. I talked to my wife and she said that the year I am thinking of was either 92 or 93. Hard to believe that it was ten years already. Seems like just a year or two ago.
I remember seeing pics from the flood in 97. parts of Man had it bad. How bad were you guys?
