I hate to use the "S" word...

...but, we are supposed to get 6 to 12 inches tomorrow. Really? I need to install my Hellwig links, 5star tune, CB Radio, take the cover off, de-winterize and detail it.

Could be worse; 80% of the Canadian prairies are dealing with wind chill of -40 or greater. When the rodents said 6 more weeks of winter , they weren't kidding.
Currently 10 degrees below normal here at home too.

Oh wow. We are heading to FL in 20 days. Worse case I'll de-winterize down there.

A bunch of record cold temps for the date set in Sask. overnight -41 + the wind in a few , and you know what's between , Sask. & the Dakotas; a barbed wire fence. Doesn't hold much back , hang onto your hats , it's still winter folks.

They've even thrown snow into the forecast out here , for the 5th time this winter. Could set a record for the number of days with snow.

Us too, leaving on the 19th. Worked on the MH this weekend putting in new house batteries and tightening hose claps etc. At 35*, It seemed warm compared to the past temps. hoping that by leave date we will be above freezing to de-winterize.

We are planning to leave NJ for the Florida Keys on March 12. Prep work is easy as MH is in a heated Morton building. BUT, the weather forecast for next Wednesday March 12 now shows a snowstorm. We have a big dinner Tuesday night so don't even have the option of leaving early!!

Well, hopefully weather forecasting is just as bad in NJ as it is in OH.

Friends back in Wisconsin used to describe the weather as, "9 months of winter followed by 3 months of bad snowmobile conditions."

A balmy 14 this morning in Frisco, TX . . . it was 78 on Saturday.

Forecasted to be 72 by Friday.
