If only you knew how hard it was to find a beer in this suburbia hell. Snuck into this bar stool just as a bus load of snobby business guys walked in.

I did the same. Put the big snowblower and shovels away too. And bought my moto tags.

It's not my fault. I didn't take the sand bags out of my truck or anything. I bought my tabs in early feb like always, so nothing suspicious there.

It's you lot screwing shit up, as usual.

Just a light coating at my place. I passed a dump truck on 694 that said Woodbury on the side that had almost a foot high snow on the roof. Did you get that much Mr. Powershouse?

I drove in today but could have easily ridden, there were only a few slightly hairy spots. I'm getting the itch for a new bike pretty bad. If I get this promotion I'm going for, it will be shopping time. Thinking used K1200/1300GT. That Tiger Prop has is pretty intriguing. The new Multistrada is damn sexy. That MotoGuzzi Stone gives me wood. There's a chance I just like motorcycles

Power out and 8" of heavy snow in Rochester as per GrainMom.

Overcast, cold, and no snow at all here in the North Metro.

Wasn't my fault.

Shovels and snoblower still at the ready a Casa Powershouse. I've even put off assembling the last few bits of the ST back together, so as not to tempt fate.

What do I have to show for my efforts? Four-to-six of albino moisture stacked on the ground.

Gravy, have you considered sled shopping? If you were to dip into the 401K for a fancy ass snow machine we'd be assured of Missouri winters for at least a few years.

Why is that? They should be OK. I don't think they are Hwa Fong el cheapo ditchfinders.

Slush no, but normal, lovely non snowy rain should be alright.

I should restate that and say I dont trust my skill level with these tires in rain yet.
