Perpetual Winter

Gotta love this midwest winter....6-10 inches of snow coming in. Wish I hadn't taken the chains off my LT tires.

Re: Perpetual Winter

I know what you mean. It's April but the weather has not yet been very appealing for riding. Mornings the temps have remained in the 30's. If it warms up much it's also extremely windy. And we're getting a lot of rain. I have been riding every chance I get. Low temps don't bother me. But I can't say I've had any really nice days yet. It's like winter just won't let go.

Re: Perpetual Winter

Contact Charlie in VT.

I think he made a plow for his LT after he made ride-on chains for his.

Re: Perpetual Winter

In the middle of a blizzard as I type, 5-10 cm expected today, squeezed a ride in last night and It was frigid.

Will finish off the winter with a final ice fishing trip Sunday, then summer will arrive, I think we skipped spring this year.
