I know I'm sounding like a big grump by saying this......but I've already accepted the fact that we're not getting snow this winter, and I've made peace with my sled and it understands that it might have to scrub some rocks and break a few parts in order to get me fishing this winter. I don't want the snow anymore. Winter's over, and the snow is too little too late. Bring on the spring weather!
All a foot of snow's gonna do is make the trails nice for 24 hrs......then EVERYONE will be out tearing around on them and they're gonna be crappy again, with nothing there to groom. The lakes are going to get slushy with the weight of the snow on them......so forget about playing on the lakes, and there still won't be enough snow along the power lines to make them safe from rocks for powder riding.
The areas of Ontario that already have some snow will be ok. Northern Ontario is gonna suck. On top of that, it's too late for the businesses to make money off the snow (lodges, motels, hotels, etc.) So let's just send the snow down to California where they would appreciate it.

An intensifying disturbance over Missouri is tracking slowly northeastwards. This developing storm is tapping a surge of warm moist air from the gulf of Mexico..Setting the stage for an extended rainfall event for eastern Ontario tonight and Friday.

Rain is expected to begin in the Nickel Belt regions this evening and continue through much of Friday. The rain will be heavy at times and total rainfall accumulations near 40 millimeters are likely by Friday evening.

Additionally strong and gusty easterly winds will develop this evening.[/b]
Hmmm......looks like we're safe.....

Wow so much negativity in one paragraph :tongue: .

We got to go for our first real ride on Tuesday and had to turn back because there was no gas anywhere. We only put on 60 kliks but it was a lot of fun. Every lake we ran around here was in great shape. Chandos was fully staked with no slush or pressure cracks. This much needed snow will make for some good riding in the next few days. March is my FAV month to sled anyways.

Issued: 5.00 AM EST Thursday 1 March 2007

Today:
Sunny. Becoming cloudy this afternoon. High minus 3. UV index 3 or moderate.

Tonight:
Cloudy. Snow mixed with ice pellets beginning this evening. Snow and ice pellet amount 5 to 10 cm. Local blowing snow overnight. Wind becoming east 40 km/h gusting to 60 near midnight. Low minus 6.

Friday:
Snow at times heavy and local blowing snow ending late in the day then cloudy. Amount 15 cm. Wind east 40 km/h gusting to 60 becoming light in the afternoon. High zero.

Saturday:
Periods of snow. Low minus 3. High plus 1.

I'll take snow any snow, even for a few hours just to ride. Keep it there in Michigan, I'm a coming just as fast as I can.
My son and I leave for Gaylord, MI on Monday and decided to bail town to ride the snow machine rather than stay and ride the hog (I mean the Harley not the wife).

It's snowing really good here in Waterdown Ontario right now about 2 inches on the ground. I hope that the freezing rain does not hit us - it's just dreadful. The season is short so this snow will help the trails last just a little longer.

Enjoy the weather, where ever you are.

Snowfun.
