Sparked up the snowblower and burnt a couple tanks of fuel moving snow out of the way yesterday. It was about 3 feet deep from the Seville all the way to the road. Got it down to ice, about 2" thick most places now. I know we have a few more snow storms yet, but the wife and I are getting anxious... Soon the snowmobile will be put away, and we will be hooking up and heading south! May 1 we leave for Moab, UT for a week. Then over to St George UT for another 3 weeks. Then make our way home. With everything we have planned this year, we should get another 70 nights or so.

Can't wait!

Snow?? What is that? We had less than a dusting this year. It was 72 degrees today. I'm worried about the fleas, ticks and other bugs this year since there was no real winter in the south to kill them off. We head out for our 1st trip of the year in 2 weeks.

Lenny, you guys have more snow then we do. 4 1/2 hours north and nothing. The river just froze in February and is already breaking up. It was pouring rain last night and I was thinking it looks like spring, but like you say more snow most likely. I keep looking over at the Seville and want to go camping. Can hardly wait.

I am ashamed to say that here in Minnesota it was a mild winter. That would be an understatement actually.
I think I ran the snow blower once,,,even then for a few inches only.
Mid 50's today with a forcast of 70's.

I use to be proud to say I lived in Minnesota, now I feel like a wimp!

Plus it was a lousy winter to buy my boys their first snowmobile...Oh well, there is always next winter. I shouldn't talk too soon though, we have been dumped on in April in the past.

The snow is falling heavy today. Everything is covered again. Just about 1/4 inch has fallen since this morning. The Seville will be just parked for more time. I want to go camping !!!!

With temperatures forecasted near 80 tomorrow, it is difficult not to de-winterize....but I will give it another two weeks...maybe...

Been about 0 to 10 C as a high here in Ottawa for the past week. All the snow is almost gone. Started the de- winterizing since I am leaving for Orlando for a month on Saturday. Found a gas valve incorrectly installed on my new 2012 335SS. See my new post in the cruiser section.
