I'm a bit south and east of you here in Cleveland, Ohio, but we have snow and cold here too, grass has pretty much been covered over since around Jan 1st.  We get out, ski, hike, think I'll try snow shoeing this year, we use the colder weather to cook some nice hot meals to look forward to after those hikes. Just got back from a few nights stay at a remote cabin in southern Ohio. Beer, darker the better, Mackeson's triple stout. Not much of a dart player but like to hot a pub every now and then to watch and enjoy the atmosphere.

For those in the southerly climate zones - that is a sandman.  This is a snowman ...
and luckily it is not built anywhere near me.

With all the damn salt used on the streets around here I wouldn't have any trouble at all scraping together enough salt to build a nice sized saltman.

Maybe us'ns up here in the snow belt appreciate the riding season a little more...just sayin'...maybe not. It's 8 above right now and tomorrow night it's supposed to be around 9 below.
Yeah, getting tired of winter.

It's going to be in the 70's again this weekend in Austin. Plan to ride to New Braunfels with TEXREX2 for "Dyno Day" at Lozano Brother's. What's this "winter" you speak of?
