winter blues: aka cabin fever.

It is all snow and ice here but we must have someone in the area with a story to tell. Lets have it, it may keep some of us from coming down with cabin fever.

George, sing along we me to keep from getting the fever: (to the tune of Down By The River Side). I took my LT for a ride, DOWN BY THE RIVER SIDE, D.......B.....T.....R.....S...... etc. The sun was shining bright above, D B T R S. etc.

We only had a little 3" storm a few weeks ago, and all the treated areas are fine. The Conn River has an ice breaker run up to just south of Hartford so the fuel barges can get up river. It was 25-30 yesterday, just fine to get in a local ride. Barnett

My guess- so that you can afford to have both a LT and a RT. ;-)

Thumbs up Winter Mental Fix

Or, why I live in CT. Another mild 28-30F day spent poking about town. A good day for flying, skating, or just hanging around the barn. Hopefully we will get dumped on this coming week so March skiing in Southern Vermont will last in to April. Barnett
