Default Weather Conditions 3-14-16

Happy PI Day.

About 75% of our snow is gone. Trails are all either mud or water covered ice. It was 50d here over the weekend, with the coming weeks forecast calling for high 30s, to low 40s, just touching below freezing at night.
Last day of winter is a week away - but it is already over for sure. Not even messing around, and going to shift things into storage mode, and finalize the seasons paperwork soon.
It was defiantly a season of side it while you can. Hopefully you did.
I will drop a weekly post through the season just for my records so I can go back and see what happened. This years final numbers will be interesting.

This is one of the strongest rain storms that I can remember. The heavy water, some hail and 40+mph winds are just driving in from the East. If this was snow, we would be talking 20" with 5' drifts.

All of the snow is gone except what is left of the piles. Talking a bit of snow for the weekend, but is is over, and we can't restart things now.

Yep--Heard the same. My guess would be that every guy, girl, and sled from a five State area will be there as well.

Matt--Did you get my return email?---Track is a single ply.

Sled is washed, skid is greased. As soon as I get the mower out of the trailer, the sled goes in. Out comes the battery and off with the clutch. Do some work I want to do on the clutch and get ready for next year.

Toivola is SE of Houghton got 15" according to MLive. Localized area though. We got flurries, that was it. Only the biggest snow piles are left, mostly mud and grass. Give me 50d for the next month and Id be happy. Supposed to be in the low 30s, with rain.
