Of course, now we've had a day of snow and some freezing rain while the warm-up progressed, but it's better than freezing fingers. I'm more than happy this last three weeks of abnormally low temps is over. Now I'm the waiting for the next heating and electric bills for my home and business which are likely to be epic.

I'm looking forward to Spring more than ever. Thoughts of an early, maybe April, trip to the Great Smokey Mountains to kick off my motocamping year keep me a little warmer while I'm waiting.
I usually try to hit Hunt's for the first time in early May... Weather has been great then for the past several years! As for our current heat wave, (WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 8 AM CST FRIDAY TO 6 AM CST SATURDAY...)

* WHAT...Mixed precipitation expected. The ice will result in
difficult travel conditions. Total snow accumulations of one to
two inches and ice accumulations of one tenth to two tenths of
an inch are expected.

Again, I'm glad my bike is in the shop this time of year...
