This sucks!

Just listened to the weather....winter storm watch in effect!

Some areas can get up to 9 inches

Most will get 5 to 7 inches.

This sucks

No riding this weekend

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

you all act suprised after the winter we have had already. Yes it is the first day of spring today and blah blah blah, but this one over 6 inches and you all know that we are due for at least a snowfall of 2 inches before the end of April with all this going on too.

Supposed to be 50-60s today and tomorrow down here Thats about the only thing I like about this GDed town. Weekend looks a bit cool though. I'm gonna through the SD back together and get my riding in while I can. At least the crap weather will give me an opportunity to pull some parts off and try my hand at bling CF fabrication.

Rick, this really does suck.

I am sooooo tired of this winter. Yes, we are supposed to see 3-6 inches of snow in Chicagoland.

What really sucks is that it'll only be crappy this weekend. Monday is supposed to be pretty nice again.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Oddly, that's exactly what I did since I cleaned out the snow scrapers when I delivered a 75 gallon aquarium last week.

Make sure you have a snorkle....Cape Gireardeu (SP?) got over a foot of rain and there's supposed to be heavy flooding in the area

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

Yep. We're doing the "river to river" off road route and we're hoping for some cool watercrossings with Ohio and Mississippi Rivers both flooded right now
