At least they've downgraded the snowfall forecast in the city that rhymes with fun. We're still well below seasonal temps, there's about 6" of ice on the street in front of my house and about 3-4 feet of snow in the yard. This time 1 year ago I was 100% on the bike. This year, I wheeled her out in to the sun about 2 weeks ago but that's it.

If it make you feel any better its crappy everywhere, its +2 with snow one minute and rain the next, on and off all morning here on Ontarios west coast in SW Ontario...

Last year was unusually warm here in the spring as well, I was also riding full time by now, hell it was 20 in March, polar opposite this year(pun intended)


Cheers, Todd

Here in the west end of the GTA the weather would have to get better to call it bad. I am at a loss for family friendly terms to describe this spring.

At the moment it switches between drizzle, rain, snow and ice pellets and has bounced around 0 - 5 C for two days.

Enuf already ! I wanna ride !!!!

oh, I remember those "bad" spring conditions in the west end of TO.

15cm of new snow here with 10 more for tomorrow. Hinton Alberta got 29cm this morning alone.

At least with snow, you can still do winter activities - next year time to buy a snowmobile again. At least I can get some 'fix' of powersports thru the winter with one.

Spring to me is the worst season and this one has been long and drawn out.

Well, as the guy who originally started this thread, I feel I should report that the sun is shining after a big rain yesterday. Friday it was 22C, yesterday about 10C, and today about 5C. And the basement is flooded!

Yay spring!
