Guess who's.............

Well guess who's on the wrong side of the storm.  We are and at 8am it's 41 degrees with light R coming out of the sky. The northeast sure hasn't seen winter stick around for more than a few days this year.  Even Bangor Maine is going to see R and high temps today.  More later..............

4:10 update:  Temp has dropped to 33 and the R has changed back to snow.  Question is will we get enough to get any riding in.

4:14 update:  Now it's back to R again.....give me a break.  I'm going to the rec Center and fix the cam.

  2. I am sick... We have stalled for 4 weeks waiting for the snow, cleared the deck for this Thursday and Friday in anticipation of leaving tomorrow afternoon for a long weekend and now it has to shoot into the 40s when the precip falls during a week of record lows. El nino ruins every winter it's here. :(

  7. So aggravated and completely defeated at this point! El Nino has ruined the season like never before. Just want Spring to start up so at least we can begin trout fishing or is El Nino going to ruin that too? Now I know why people drink! 50F and pouring rain in the middle of February. Give us a freakin break!

  9. This is really unbelievable! I am a very positive person but even so I can only handle so much! I thought surely it can not go from fridged to 40's so quickly! I was wrong!! Hopefully it will turn around just as quickly! When and if it does Old Forge will look like Martin Luther King weekend! Lol

  11. In 50 something years this is the most disappointing winter I can ever remember. What keeps us going is knowing where our averages come from. An extreme the other direction is now due & I can't wait!

  12. Please everyone im tired of hearing the complaining about el nino. If all you guys do is complain then maybe you should find another sport. Things are bad enough and you guys just make thing worse with the negativity. You guys complain in late december when we get a meltdown and everyone cries saying its over. This bog has turned out to be nothing but a bunch of crybabies. Gets worse every year.

    1. Trails look horrible. My driveway is a pile of slush. Gouing to gore tomorrow since obviously won't be riding. As long as my kids have fun that's all that matters!! Definetly will support local restaurants while here. Place is a ghost town. I think I'm the only one here on the block. Horrible!!

  14. OF getting totally destroyed today. Done waiting - we just booked a trip to Mexico for the end of the month. See ya 2nd week of March if it's any good by than. So glad I only invested in a new Klim jacket this season. For others including local business and staff I feel horrible.

Now it's our turn to open our doors to you snowmobile enthusiasts we have had little to no snow all season Now we get almost 2feet in a 24 hour period. When we have snow we have wonderful riding so please come to Western NY......Steve I will check your web cam daily I'll even see you this summer bringing the boat up.....thank you for all your hard work informing us crazy people who are so compassionate about our sport......

    2. Hi Fred B

      We are located near Letchworth State Park and in the Genesee Wyoming Chautauqua Allegany counties. I believe almost all the trails are ooen in these areas. All kinds of lodging and accommodations. Google area counties I mentioned and they will give you all info you need.Bad news is it is suppose to warm up and even possibly rain by Friday and Saturday. Just so frustrating. Mother Nature has been so cruel this year to us winter enthusiasts. Good luck hope something works out for you.
