    We got snow and it's really coming down.

    And, I got this to go out and play in the snow with. Close to 10" so far. Been out once already, but I got to rethink my jacket and helmet choices. It's colder than it looks. Name:  BW.JPG

    Cool Yamaha! Bet it’s a hoot in the snow with those big tires.

    Re: We got snow and it's really coming down.

    We have two. My wife's is a 1985 and mine is a 1986. They are very sure-footed, as they are geared quite low. They only top out at about 40 mph or so, but they are unstoppable.

    They shine in the snow. You really have to work to get the rear to step out from under you. Great ground clearance and the motor is simple and reliable. And, they don't tear up the terrain like a large dirt bike would. Very environmentally friendly.

    I knew years ago, that I'd grow old with them.

    Re: We got snow and it's really coming down.

    Being a Floridian living in Nashville at the time I really liked the snow. I had a YZ250 and it was a blast in the snow. In an open field you could flat track that thing for 100 yards and it was like shooting the tube on a surfboard. My friend and I would put studs in our 3 wheeler tires and have a blast on frozen ponds. It was a good time. Have fun!

    I don't like snow very much.

    Here in AZ., all the snow and rain this storm has been producing, is a blessing for the state. According to a Phoenix news station, AZ. has been in a drought for decades.

    This storm has or will remove us from that condition.

    Re: We got snow and it's really coming down.

    We moved to AZ. in 1984, from Montana. I was born and raised in the PNW. I know all about snow and how to get around in it.

    Having been raised in it, it's not a big deal for the most part. Here in N. AZ. we get snow to some degree most every Winter. I think the last time we had this much snow, it was the Winter of 85 / 86. We got in excess of 2.5' overnight. It literally shut down Prescott and the surrounding areas for about a week.

    That was 33 yrs. ago. The norm seems to be a few inches here and there.

    Re: We got snow and it's really coming down.

    Was in Las Vegas for work this week and it snowed Sunday evening and started on Wednesday evening ending about lunch on Thursday. Largest snowflakes I have ever seen. And, I too hate snow, after a couple of flight delays got back to ATL and 58 degrees, was in the 70's and partly sunny in Auburn, AL today.

    This was about 6:30 on Thursday morning, according to the news there was 6-8 inches at Red Rock, we were at the Red Rock resort.



    Sorry for the crappy picture, was the best I could get

    A girl in a bubble in the pool while it was snowing She was doing acrobatic moves no idea why but was getting paid, in for 30 minutes and out for 30.

    Re: We got snow and it's really coming down.

    Most of our snow is gone, or well on it's way. Lots of sloppy wet streets still though. Parking lots still have large snow banks. Still lots of gravel / cinders on the roads.

    It's gonna be at least another good week or so til I can get a ride in.
