Spring is just never coming...MrDan

Here in central MA. it is utterly depressing... It's snowing hard. Dam- weather people, was supposed to be an inch, now 6 inches! Will it ever end?
I feel your pain .. more snow and the roads are all chewed upMaartin

If this snow ever ends this spring is going to be tough. The roads are full of potholes and frost heaves. Add to this the huge amount of sand everywhere and it is going to be a tough spring. I am rebuilding my old wheels to use the first few weeks so I do not ruin my good ones.

The damage to the roads here in NJ from all the snow and cold is the worst I can ever recall. Its going to make for some dicey Spring riding.

... yesterday, my driveway was nearly free of snow... early this morning, a new layer of powder fell over an icy glaze...

We're promised temps in the 50's by Saturday... but I no longer believe...

Be the bike.

Guess I shouldn't tell you all that it's 84 here and almost too hot to ride this early in the year. But I need to ride cuz it's supposed to rain for the rest of the weekend. Just as long as it clears up next week. I plan to spend all spring break just riding.

That's pretty much perfect for me! For some reason I like the heat...

Yeah, it's perfect in May and June, but it was 50 last week. And it is humid out too... but I went riding and it was nice!

we are getting dumped on in the Boston area. approx 4inches today plus another quarter inch of salt on the road. Bumming me out.

On the bright side....I am going skiing this weekend!!!

for the last 2 months, now I just about lose it when I look outside at the conditions and the temp. I am so ready for 45 degrees.

Live in Fenwick, Ontario and this winter has been relentless, snow and too cold to even get out on the roads. -13 Celcius as I type this message, hopefully March is "In like a Lion".
