Nope look at the tach and I call BS on the air temp gauge cause it was colder than 30.

Yeah, looking iffy. With all the "wintry mix" forecasted I'm guessing that they will be salting.

If not, the high in the Detroit area will be 35, low of 20, so please watch for ice.

Even if the weather cooperates, my back driveway is completely covered in packed snow/ice, it will have to melt today and tomorrow or else I wont be able to get out, no spikes on my tires. :)

I looked at my bike yesterday and I thought I wonder if I could ride it on the snow and ice to the main road so I could turn a few miles. Jonsing big time. My trigger (throttle) fingers are getting mighty itchy.

This morning I could barely get my cars out of the garage. My garage is in the back of my house, the driveway curves down a slope to a large pad area which does not drain well. Given that I was away during a 4-5" snow storm (Which I cleared when I got home, but there was a base of compacted snow that remained), and yesterdays rain and snow, I now have a terrific ice rink back there.

So what I have is water on ice. Not good. I wont be parking my cars in my garage until it either warms up or it somehow evaporates, but when the hard freeze comes tomorrow its going to be a solid block of ice.

I took a spill taking the trash out this morning.

I hate this fucking weather.

Stinking weather! Got a lot o' slick spots around me now. Looks like we got a dusting of snow that froze over.

Still waiting on that February ride!

I could avoid the ice in the roads by me, even the neighborhood, but there's a nearly perfect ice rink outside of my garage and small ice rinks where my driveway connects to the neighborhood road.

FUCK.

I think I might get a short ride in this afternoon. I found a few roads to stay off of when I drove in this morning, so we'll see how it goes.

I just spent a few minutes out back with a pick axe, just on the odd chance that I might be able to break up enough to allow me to get out of the garage if I park there, but I think its futile.

Well I just got done clearing another 4" of snow and it's going to be sub zero the next two nights. The weather service has no end to this in the long range forecast. I don't think we will be riding until July this year. :fu2:

Accuweather app shows sub freezing until the 15th of March, then no more below 32 for the remainder of the 45 day outlook. Nights are another issue. My problem is I put the bike in the shed under my deck. Have a 25-30 degree slope to the front yard covered in 2 efft of Dec-March snow and Ice. Guess I'm going to have to build a 75' ramp to get her topside before July!
