COME ON SPRING!!!!

Postby rich703 » Tue Apr 03, 2018 8:35 am

Can anyone find spring? Is anyone ells sick of this long winter? Cade 18 is only 62 days away and it feels like the day after Christmas not Easter. Hopefully we turned the corner and only warmer weather ahead of us. Fingers crossed!!!

Judging by the weather forecast for the next 10 days in my area, Spring temps will come only in short 10 minute increments followed by cold rain and snow. :wink:
That's why the make electric clothing. I hope I won't need it for Americade but they will be in my saddlebags along with rain gear. The old boy scout in me says "always be prepared" and have a good attitude.

Take care, Mike

Americade has been told on good authority that June 4-9, 2018 will be 72 degrees and sunny, with gentle winds, each and every day. Guaranteed.

And to think in two months from now we will be in the thick of Americade 2018 week and its 35 degrees out. We froze our butts off this morning at lacrosse practice . This will just make for a great Americade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Going to be 38 degrees tonight in Charlotte! But that is the same weather we might get in Lake George in June.

Drove (truck) up to LG Friday, left RI at noon and was in snow all the way. Original plan was for 2 wheels but had to scrub that plan; glad we did after encountering multiple accidents. Time for this to end and get the temps reliably into the 50s.

Lots of snow still on the ground up in LG? And to think in two months the village will be packed with bikes

Took a ride to the Hot Biscuit Saturday for breakfast; plenty of snow all the way up.

Looks like old man winter doesn't want to leave Lake George. They have a winter weather advisory starting at 12pm Saturday till Sunday 8pm. Calling for 3"-5" Saturday and 1-3" Sunday of the white stuff . I guess today was just a tease. Go figure

How ironic it is. Americade is less then two months away and the temperature in LG right now is 20 degrees less then the 49 days count down. Hopefully we will be rewarded come June.
