Well the wife and i were supposed to be going to our campground hosting site this friday but with another winter storm about 5" today. I guess it will have to wait 2 more weeks, Winter can stop anytime know.

I'm with you brother!

Fortunately, we've graduated from snow days ago, to 67 degrees today,73 tomorrow, and mild temps forecasted through the rest of March. Dewinterized and tested everything this weekend finally!

(not to pour salt in your wound...mind ya :p)

Wait while I shake some of that salt off .......... Yesterday was beautiful, around 50°F and sunny so I got the trailer suspension greased and underside inspected. I wanted to do the wheel bearings and brakes today but no sun and just plain raw. Maybe Maņana. At least there is no snow forecast for the rest of March. Oh well ............ we can still dream. http://www.keystonerv.org/forums/picture.php?albumid=251&pictureid=1149

OUCH. You know that salt stings in a open wound! We have not seen 70 degrees since last September.
Forcast for our area in Northern Wisconsin: Winter storm warning from 7PM to Noon tommorow, 6 to 10 inches of wet heavy white stuff. :eek: YUCK.

Man, I really hate that for you! Sounds like you need to move a bit further south just to decrease winter effects!

It rained all day today, got up to 41*F. We lost about a foot of snow, and there's still about 3' on the ground, but not much ice melted from the concrete aprons and the roads. Tonight is predicted to be 20*F, so a hard freeze and I'm sure tomorrow morning all the roads will be iced over. We're on the tail end of that storm warning in Wisconsin and Minnesota and are looking at probably 6" of the wet stuff. Snow Blowers won't move it, it's just like the ice in a snow cone :( The only way to get it out of the way is to push it with a plow or lift it with a shove.. I bought another 10 gallons of diesel, I'm using the tractor and the plow, gotta save my back for camping (if it ever gets warm) LOL
