It's about 35 degrees and we're having sleet just north of Dallas. And Atlanta had an ice storm a few days ago.

Since Christmas, we've had a few sunny days in the 70's. But those days are not very common. :-(

:mrgreen: You can still ride in rain! We got 3+feet of f***** snow. I wish I were down there, you know it'll stop soon and you'll get some riding in. We're expecting more snow this weekend, WTF :?:

We don't start to warm up until the first week in March.

My daughter's soccer team plays from Feb-April. It's too cold in February for kids to play soccer! Why can't they play March-May???

Thanks Mister Dale. You saved me the trouble of rubbing it in ;)
Oh wait... I have something to add. I now work at Sycuan CASINO with the ******. Part of my commute to work is a decent set of twisties and stuff. I GET TO RIDE TWISTIES JUST TO GET TO WORK 3 days a week. Yay for me and my new job.

Oh and if I feel like leaving early enough, I can follow about 15 miles of twisies or so and take a longer rout to work instead of the superslabs. Am I cool or what? Oh yea and today, yesterday, tomarrow and the forseeable future is sunny here.

All I can say is ...

STILL WAITING FOR THE BIG ONE? :twisted:

When SoCal slides off into the Pacific, we'll take a long ride through the twisties in your memory...

(I'm not normally this mean, but I haven't been on my bike since November. Can you tell?)

Congrats on the new job! Going to work is always better on a twisty road, especially when it's warm and sunny, right Inspiron? :mrgreen:

Okay, just add some more salt to the wounds (and on the streets).

Phil the Groundhog saw his shadow this morning, so he's predicting 6 more weeks of wither weather ... damn rodent ...

As far as I can remember, yes, getting to work on a bike is better than in the cage ... but it's been soooo long...

Remember, I ride upright and nekked - no fairings for me to hide behind :)

I'd be thrilled if it was to only last six weeks.

Yeah I heard that on the news last week!! 36" of the white stuff. I grew up in Ipswich Ma and still can remember the blizzard of 78 with it's 2'-3' snow fall on top of what was already on the ground and wind blown snow drifts 10'-15' high, cars stoped on the mass pike and rt 128. I swear that shut the state down for nearly a week as we dug out.

But now I'm in Florida and yesterday it was in the 70s and partly sunny. It's good to be in Florida. :)

I grew up in Connecticut. I was in high school during the "Blizzard of '78". The entire state was shut down for three days. Nothing was open. I've never seen anything like it. We had plenty of food. It was fun.
