Too late.  Got an unsigned bump just down the road from my house.

...problem is that it no longer feels like spring here.  Try stepping away from your computers and going out side!

60* here today and the same for the next seven days. Springtime in the Rockies. Helped to melt the last of the 65" of snow we had.
BTW.
BUMP= Build Up Material in Pavement
DIP=Depression In Pavement

6-16 in this area on Tuesday. With a wind chill. Guess I'll throw another log on the fire while I browse the forum then. The last blast before the eventual warm-up.

It is near, and unfortunatley so are the never ending bumps in the road.

Bump season has arrived.  Must be that mud and black flies are just around the corner....

When I left the yard, it was 4, and the wind is insane here right now, the we still have power though.....

The high in Waterford was 1.5, not counting the wind chill. Extremely cold. Below a certain temperature thermometers ought to say, to cold to get out of bed, or leave the house. And on really hot days, the themometer ought to read, to hot to go to work. Ha Ha

Gee, Joe,
It was only 60* today and cloudly.
The snow, what there is of it, is going fast.
On the other hand, the mountains just west of me about 50 miles have over 10' of snow and all ski slopes and runs are open.
It is great track laying weather, here.

If God wanted me to ski, my feet would be six feet long!!
