Nearly took the Tiger into work today and I'm glad I didn't.
Snow squalls at work, freezing rain and snow on the way home.
You know Winter is here when the salt trucks are out.
Hurry, Spring!!!

I don't understand why they call it "Old Man Winter". Frankly, it is insulting to all us old men. Why would they call something that is cold & frigid, miserable, dreary and unpredictable "Old Man"? I think it should be called "Ex Wife Winter". :sneaky:

I feel for you guys, but I just love my all year riding, our winters are very mild here and I have never seen snow in my 61 years of life, I love riding in our winters better than cooking my brains out in our hot summers but it don't stop me getting the bikes out, anyway stay warm.

You forgot the buxom, red headed mistress who hangs out in the garage and keeps you entertained.

The good news is they're calling for 52 degrees here in a day or so which means I will get the bike out after all!
I hate this time of year, my hands got dried out working on a bike, a callus cracked and it went under my thumb nail.
What fun!

I can't take the heat and ride. With all the fires I would be very unhappy.

My Home. Tug Hill, sometimes referred to as the Tug Hill Plateau, is an upland region in Upstate New York in the United States, famous for heavy winter snows. The Tug Hill region is east of Lake Ontario, north of Oneida Lake, and west of the Adirondack Mountain

The Tug Hill region is renowned for its bountiful snowfall.

Somehow, they make that sound like a desirable thing.
Central Pennsyltucky, reknown for it's copious quantities of rain and unending stream of pot holes created by a multitude of colorful tractor trailers...

I worked in Penn. one summer. I didn't like it. Too many 45mph no passing roads. Too many deer. BEARS !
I don't like the snow and cold but no traffic and very nice curvy roads are great.

After several weeks of great nice weather and no wind or snow, today things changed. It's a chilly 28F and light dusting snow.
Oh well, I would not trade it for back where I came from in AZ for a million dollars. :p
