The cold is back.......

Temps have dropped, we are below freezing and it looks like we are going to stay cold.  Things are freezing down fast, yesterday the weight of just a two place trailer left marks in the front yard and today the back yard was frozen enough to back in the fuel truck.  So what was left out on the trails has or is freezing back down.  But we will need to get some new snow for cooling and slide rail lube.  It will come, it's just a matter of when.  Forecast doesn't look great for the weekend, but don't give up ship yet, it's only Tuesday.

Here's Todays Video for.............

      Hope that is going to be very little snow on it.. it'll probably be frozen up quick..We'll Knock off off a few 100+ mile runs...

      At least the bar doesn't need perfect snow conditions (?)

  4. I spoke with a few ice fisherman on wed. 1/9 They said 2-3 inches. That was at daikers. Turned arouned and went back up hill. Maybe after this cold shot, give it to next week. Why take a chance

  6. yeah things look pretty good long term. now that the snow washed out some the lakes should be good next week. If you believe in longer term models the end of the month looks very good. That darin guy at Ilsnow has some nice predictions about the polar vortex and all the other ingredients for cold and snow.....

  7. Keep off the ice until it's a foot thick!!! Wait for some snow instead. Be smart, it's not worth it!
