    First Snow.....

    On Monday I was out riding the TW in shorts sans helmet with the temps near 80.....

    On Wednesday I was saluting the end of the back yard beer drinking cigar smoking season:

    and by this morning, after a night of 35 degrees and 35 mph winds and a bit of snow.....Winter has arrived in West Central Ohio

    I expected to see a lot more snow than that when I read the title
    Some days here in central UK up till now it's been almost like summer still, T-shirt & shorts weather
    Nights are getting colder & it's getting dark earlier especially now we've turned the clocks back (do you do that in the US?)
    They are forecasting snow & frosts in the north next week tho

    Clocks go back tonight. Yep, always been amazed how moderate the temps are there given your latitude.

    That is the reason I am starting to see the Snow birds out of state license plates and more Canada plates, Canadian's bought a lot of second homes in AZ when the housing market took a dive.

    Peter, I think Snow = tourist dollars
    Hoot, that looks like perfect riding conditions if you can just get another inch or so. Lay down some nasty tracks in your back yard.

    First snow yesterday. zdiver1 I hope you don't mind those Canadian plates? I'm hoping one day I can retire and spend my winters riding with you guys. Canadian summers are awesome spring and fall are great but winter sucks!
