Highways closed yesterday to the west from snow and ice. Closed to the east from washouts. Hot in Sudbury and cold as fuck here.

I'm watching the rest of the snow melt...driveway is already clear and dry.

As soon as the back yard is clear, i'll get the little CBR out, and should be able to ride in a few more days. Probably have to ride with a heated vest though, I only weigh 146 lbs right now.

Hey Ron - the forecast looks good over the next week. I'm free during the day. So is the CBR150R. I'll let you take her for a spin!

oh what a difference two weeks makes



These pics were taken Saturday. Sunday was another 20 degree day so almost all the snow is gone now and it's getting dry.



When I left there today there was no snow left on this lawn.

The sauna must have been hot. Did you dive in off the ice (how did you get on it) or is that your hands coming out of the water? Great pic.

The pic is a little late (I had clothes on).
It was a running dive off the ice.
The ice is actually very strong. I just swam out and climbed on.
I was surprised how warm (probably not the right word) the water was. Standing on the ice was cold on the feet though.
