Default Weather Conditions 3-18-15

Well reaching near the end of March and the snowmobile season is unofficially over here on the Straits Trails. A local told me that you can still ride perfectly flat trail out in the woods, but they are tough to get to and no reason to drive any distance to ride here that is for sure. Grooming is done baring a huge storm, which I don't see in the forecast.

The weather warmed up last week, stole all of our snow, and now is more seasonable and cool. Temps just above and below freezing makes things slick every morning. There are some patches of grass poking up here and there, with the piles smaller but still around.

With the plane traffic I am guessing that the last day for the ice bridge was Monday 3-16, but I still do not see any open water anywhere. When it goes, it is going to go fast I think. Overall the great lakes went from 92% covered just a little while ago, to something like 42% yesterday.

I guess we will be entering the 'off season' a little early this year. It is time to wax them up and we will see you next season.

I will give one more season update at the end of the month.

I hope next season starts a little more promptly than this season or it is going to be a long summer. Thanks for the updates Neil, we'll have to try come up and see you on the four-wheelers sometime this spring, otherwise we'll see you for fall signing.
