Damn weather

Well what can you do. Bike is sitting there. Snow continues to fall. Looks like another week lost to bad weather. Wish I had a heated garage to some of the small maintenance items that need to be attended to. Hmmm. If I won the lottery maybe I could move to a warmer climate.

Well I can relate as it snowed a little here today!

If you put a general area in the location of your information you won't have people asking where your from? Where are you from? LOL

Its a nice Autumn day here 16 c or 60 f and warming but did have the fire on for the first time last night since last spring here as days had been getting shorter and it had been very wet last couple of days but we needed it as we are experincing a very dry time and estimate drought has cost NZ around 2 billion but has been a great time for tourists and those that sell icecream.

Nice weather Kiwi!

High temp here today was low 30's with freezing rain/sleet/ and snow mix... And of course here in my part of NY anytime theres even a HINT of a snowflake, they drop 100 tonnes of salt on the roads

Looking forward to spring..

It was 11 degrees F when I woke up this morning, and I have a couple of feet of snow on my front lawn.

I few months ago, we sold our house and bought a newer one with a big heated garage (attached). It was really worth it. And believe it or not... it was my wife's idea!

God, do I remember that. I went to RIT, and it was terrible. My girlfriend's MGB was buried past the roof one storm. Here in CT people have no idea what winter can be like till they spend fours years in Rochester.
I do miss the area though. It was a wonderful time there.
