Wish I already moved to the valley! Stuck here digging out and paying taxes.



That lamp post is 6" tall we got 23" snow, but the drifts were bigger. Had to shovel my roof



No room in the truck for my bikes.







Hope to see you soon, RR

I thought that's what you were talkin' about.





Nice find. I want one of those too. Or a Super Enduro. Did you happen to drive to New York for that? A guy I know, Xmoto on ADV was sellin' his.

Thanks. Last winter we had nothing to speak, if you ignore the October 12" storm that knocked out power for a week. Then there was Tropical storm Irene 4 weeks before that and Hurricane Sandy 8 weeks ago.

We had only 21" up to now, before this storm for this season.


Jan 2011 we had 60+" in that month alone. I finally can sleep through the night now when it snows. Since I retired (Jan 2011 had a lot to do with retiring) I don't have to be in a plow truck or at the business end of a shovel or snowblower.

The farmer across the street lost all 3 greenhouses yesterday. He just replaced them after Jan 2011 did the same thing to them.

It would all be OK if we had nice cool summers, but we get the same heat and humidity (sometimes worse humidity) as you get.

And besides, I see pics of you guys riding and it's killing me.

Thanks, I think. That was taken after my wife pushed some off with a broom.

I got it from MxFritz in Ohio. I was also thinking about a Super Enduro but wanted a bit less weight.

Great snow pics!

I was just out getting the mail, and all I can hear is snowmobiles everywhere across the street from me. Lots of farm land there. I'll swap places with you till it melts.

I was gonna look you up last Sept when I was in FR to ride the Skyline and BRP, but time didn't allow.
