Default Weather Conditions 12-17-15

Same weather pattern is gripping Michigan for all of December. People are all excited because this weekend we are going to have 2 consecutive days of below freezing temps, unfortunately it will be back in the high 30s low 40s through Christmas. Zero frost in the ground as of today, and no decent snow in the forecast. Yard is actually a bit green.

I'm actually thinking about sending the groomer out next week... on a grading run.

Now as soon as i post that bad news up, we awake to an inch on the ground with the remote possibility of 3-6" by the end of tonight. Back into the upper 30s to lower 40s for Sunday, and rain on Monday will wash it away, but at least it is white around here today.

This is crazy... I think it's toddmeister's fault for buying a new ride and custom tuning it like he did.

Tomorrows forecast is over 50d, and rain.

I will point out that I have a old POS sled that I don't ride, so it isn't my fault.

FYI, sent the grader blade out to work the Western sand trails before the frost comes... whenever that is.

Also, for those that may think about riding an ATV, yes it is legal on all our trails, West of the RR Grade - except the Southern 1/2 of the lower loop. Be on the lookout for fallen trees - we have had a couple bad wind storms over the last month and are just looking to start clearing things soon. You will find a few trees down here and there.
