Gee, average temp of 104 in July, sounds great!
I'll spend winter skiing, snowmobiling and ice fishing, but enjoy and God Bless.

I'll play these, thanks
Going for record tonight maybe.
All the snow this year so far has been powder, very different for these parts.
17 below this morning in Wisconsin, with a wind chill of -45.
Yesterday, almost as brutal - I was waiting at the door for my postal carrier, with a hot chocolate. She was most grateful. Respect them enduring that kind of a day.

Propane supplies are being depleted in the upper Great Plains. Gas pipeline blew up in Manitoba. Just heard a climate expert predict a February colder than ever, and this cold snap is rivaling '76 and '17 of the previous century.
In passing he mentioned it has nothing to do with carbon dioxide and other stuff that cannot be mentioned or it will be political, go figure. Batten down the hatches, hope there's enough natural gas to last the winter. In the middle of making a big pot of borscht for the next three days. I'm getting a little concerned, if you know what I mean.
Good news, just got another cool riding jacket.
Man, they lied.
That was -13 not -20.
We did -18 already and it didn't make headlines.
Everything is relative.
It is what it is.
Embrace Winter or it will beat you every year.
I think its beautiful
I meant I was concerned about the borscht, every time it's made it tastes different. Stir in a little sour cream, grab a piece of buttered bread and pass out after supper.

I am feeling pretty down with the weather. I registered for the Moonshine Lunch Run yesterday and it really made me depressed. Today I had to go spend some quality time in the garage making sure she was warm dry and the wipe some dust off and circulate some lube. I came in smelling of exhaust so I feel a little better but weather forecast is not looking good. It was 26 today and I just kept thinking, "I could go for a short ride" but the ice and snow is still everywhere and very wide spread so it would not be the smartest.
I think I need to start going to a support group of people who understand my problems, I have been trying to talk to some but just keep getting weird looks like I am off my rocker or something. At least I get to go to the IMS show next weekend in Chicago.
Hope no one was out in the snow and ice down south. The news was shocking with people simply parking where they were stuck, and walking away.
After seeing the posts of our comrades from AZ, TX and other places warm, we will have to urge our moderators to keep them from teasing us midwesterners.
New rule------One must have their bike in the corner of their garage with snow shovels resting against it, have shoveled their drive so many times there is no where to put more snow, have read every issue of their favorite motorcycle magazine 5 times, maxed out their Netflix subscription and have unfriended everyone they know in AZ and Florida on Facebook to post on this forum until spring

The Chicago show this weekend should be a nice break from Mother nature.
Looking forward to sitting on some bikes and visualizing sunny sky's and warmer days.
