I've lived in the NE 99.9% of my life. Last winter it started getting cold in late November and starting warming up in April. Its done this for as long as I can remember so I really can't say this winter was any longer than any previous winter I've experienced.

But come to think of it last fall was extremely long.

Bike Week


I'm here in Daytona and it ain't too warm..cold front blew through last night and it's currently 49f but reprieve will be had in a couple of days with temps back to normal that is in the 70's and low 80's. 😎

Will be attending the new TT short track event on Thursday night and attending most of the Speedway vendors activities as much as possible as I'm limited in my travels due to my current mode of transportation be it public bus or bicycle as I'm currently living on my boat here in Daytona..

Weather WOW (Wild Out West)

The weather forecast this AM is crazy. A low is coming ashore in Northern Mexico, tracking through the SW deserts and winding up before moving NE. They are predicting 975 millibars pressure by Wednesday, similar to a Cat 2 Hurricane. Blizzard warnings are up, winds of 70/80 mph predicted in places and huge rain totals.

Get the motorcycle indoors, oh and the dog, and don't forget the goats. This one is predicted to smash records.

Read this article and you will understand why I can muster zero compassion regarding eastern weather. We sent it your way.... enjoy.

Montana just endured one of the nation's most exceptional cold spells on record

Took a few weeks down in Florida to get my head straight, now I'm really ready for spring to get here.
Hope the snow melts soon for all you guys. We're lucky here in Delaware to have none.
