Well the prostar went into my storage unit this week and today we had our first snowfall . For us up here in the frozen tundra the writing is on the wall

YIKES, where in Wisconsin are you???? We got rained on at the "frozen tundra" today, didn't see a snowflake! Sad, sad days, but the Pack won!

Yup its over-so sad to see the snow this soon up here. I think it snowed in most of NE Wisconsin yesterday north of 90/94. What makes it really depressing is that our last snowfall of the spring was only 5.5 months ago. We deserve an early and warm spring in 2014.

Yeah - yesterday here was nice... turned out warmer than expected. Traxx got out - a bit breezy for slalom - but looked good for surf and wake...

I think MN had 10 months row of snow when it finally stopped this year. :( -

Well............yeah, but who is riding from 2 am to 4 am. Up north we have laws about no skiing/wakeboarding/surfing after dark. :rolleyes:

It was snowing pretty heavy driving back from central MN yesterday. The dock & pontoon lift sure looked weird with snow on them. I do believe the only month it has not ever snowed in this #%$@ state is July. That means that in addition to snow in June, it has snowed in August before. That's just wrong!

In MN it is legal to ski for one hour after sunset, so nothing wrong with stretching the daylight a little.

This is a big reason why I don't live in Wisconsin anymore, too cold for too long. Hopefully it snows enough to allow winter sports enthusiasts to enjoy the cold. Cold winters without snow was miserable.

It's never over till it's over . 3 guys did 3 hrs on Saturday in SE wisconsin on Whitewater lake . Sure it was brisk but worth every shiver .

I don't know man I duck hunted ne south Dakota this weekend and after pulling decoys with neoprene gloves on it took ten minutes for my hands to stop burning .Between Alexandria and st cloud I saw places with 2 inches of snow built up . I am on the border od mn and wi and its was 31 degrees here this morning and the flurries were still falling

I may have to head down that way for a pull then. If it is that cool in Tampa, then our water has probably made it to the high 60s. I haven't been in about three weeks and it has gotten cooler since then, but nothing like the guys up North. I don't have too much of a reason to complain about the weather here.

The bad news: Here in western SD two weeks ago we had a record-setting blizzard; two feet of snow on the prairie, four to five feet of snow in the mountains. The local ski area had seven feet of snow in ten days. I'm done skiing.

The worse news: tens of thousands of cattle died in the storm, a tragedy for local farmers and ranchers.

Not fast enough! Snow still up to my thighs on the deck, deer looking for food. Probably 0 degrees with the wind chill today in Lakewood, WI. "Spring can't come fast enough"!
