I checked my calandar twice ....... Yep its January - forcast for tomorrow: near 50 degrees F and chance of showers. RAIN SHOWERS!! What the f***http://www.snowmobileworld.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/excl.gif
01-08-2002, 01:00 PM
Yeah this really sucks. *Its almost 40 degree already, and its only 1pm. *I really feel for the guys that are trying to sell their sleds. *I hope we get something soon, so they dont get into too much trouble.
01-08-2002, 02:07 PM
I can't believe this s##t either, especially after last winter, it was so awesome. I get so hyped for the season way too early, I start thinkin' about it as soon as the leaves start changin' colors and always take my sled out of storage early, like in sept. so I san get all my s##t done before it gets cold- What F####n cold it was colder back in sept. than it is now.

Global warming I guess ???
I am just as unhappy as you guys.Brand spankin new machine and no snow.On the other hand,resorts,hotels,bars,resturants,gas stations that normally count on the sled season are hurting bigtime.I guess its sucks for all mankind.The tree huggers are loving it I bet.
01-08-2002, 07:35 PM

01-08-2002, 09:17 PM
I'm keeing faith but I don't know if it will last a couple more weeks?????? Then the ground hog comes out :angry:

Put 800 miles on my new sled at christmas, now it looks like I will have to cancel my trip to U.P. Mich. for next week. *I decided today to just go pay my golf membership, and maybe then mother nature will make it cold. *No "FOUR SEASONS" weather anymore, just spring and fall, *cold wet summers and dry warm winters. *With just a few days of average temps. tossed in.
01-09-2002, 12:55 PM
I'm thinking that tonight I'm going to get all suited up, helmet and all, and go sit on my sled. *If I put anymore wax on it, you wont even know that its yellow anymore.
I say shoot the groundhogs, that way winter may last forever *:p
01-09-2002, 02:41 PM
Crazy winter everywhere, upper 20's 30's and even 40's in Alaska.
We've got snow but it's the worst season ever from what I'm been told.
Did Mother Nature loose the instructions on how to change the seasons?????????
01-09-2002, 02:49 PM
I guess that is why they call Nature a Mother...
01-09-2002, 03:00 PM

Im in SE Michigan and it hit 48 f------ degrees today. Glad to see there are others like me sick over these balmy temperatures. You know what else boils my temp nearly as much as the warm weather....these weather forecasters that announce the heatwave and then feel obligated to tell us how lucky we are to have it right now. *Then, when the forecaster is done with his part, the main anchor repeats how nice this warm crap will be for all of us. Not to mention just about everyone I ran into today commented on what a nice day it is out. I was beginning to think I was only one wanting the cold! Guess we gotta hang in there, cold and snow has to be coming.....
01-09-2002, 10:38 PM
The warm weather is a bummer to say the least! *It is making it hard to justify owning sleds (3) and a trailer when they are not being used more then 3 months a year; (THIS YEAR, 2 TIMES) *Well soon summer will be here and we can get the ski boat out. *Maybe this Febuary????? *
I'm glad I didn't buy a new sled this year. *I don't know how you guys do it? (that buy a new sled every year)
I'll keep riding my 98 xc6 with 4300 miles on it for another year; and probably next year as well and maybe the year after that and after that........by 2007 maybe I'll have 4400 miles on it?
01-10-2002, 12:21 AM
It was over 50 degrees here today in ND beating the 1958 high of 48 for january. *I'm really getting sick of this. *I have managed to put 350 miles on so far which I am very grateful for. But have put over 600 miles on the pickup and trailer running all over the state for short 70 mile rides. *I'm getting sick of everyone saying isn't it a nice day I think i'm going to go insane everytime i hear that.
01-10-2002, 03:23 PM
Look at all the money we're saving. Yea right. New sled. New trailer. No snow. I made the mistake of filling the gas tank in December. Good thing I added stablizer a couple weeks ago!
I think somebody said it "El Guappo" this year that's screwin up the snow. *We finally got enough to ride, lasted 4 days till it poured last night. *God this sux!
01-10-2002, 04:59 PM
All you guys need to load up and come to canada for a week we have lots of snow, and if you want you can even take a truck load back with ya. *God i love Canada we can ride 5 months a year. http://www.snowmobileworld.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif * Am i pissing u off more? http://www.snowmobileworld.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif *Here is how its lookin back on our sledding grounds.
01-10-2002, 06:06 PM

Dee's forcast and smile next week it's gunna snow out there in the midwest.Yet every week I watch the weather channel and there still playing golf out there.Who the h#ll is this J D guy you talk about?If I were you guy's I'd be looking for another weather guru. ??? Buy the sound of it he hasn't brought the snow there or here or anywhere for that matter. :0
01-13-2002, 05:20 PM

Gonna have to get a snow makin machine or a pair of downhill skis just to remember what the white stuff feels like. Going to plant a frickin palm tree in my front yard.

Snow conditions (or lack of) have allowed me to put on 36 miles so far. I know a few guys that have over 300 miles but they're replacing sliders and carbides already. One guy has over 500 miles and hasn't driven his sled yet (it was stolen he got the insurance money the cops found it and he bought it back). Its still in excellent shape only had to put decals on it and replace sliders and carbides.
01-18-2002, 04:12 PM
For the last several Years I have noticed the winters have shifted later.
Starting about right now and going later into the spring. We should get some good snow soon.
I also Just modified my ZRT by adding a powder track and skis.
Hope for the best.
01-18-2002, 04:39 PM
Well winter is finally here. In my area all trails except one are opened and groomed. For a full report check out trail conditions forum.
