    I have four sets in on my lake In Northern Colorado and just had to re-winterize the boat. 5 to 8 inches of snow and a low of 20. Be back in the 70s by the end of the week. Dont worry happy days will be here

    Boat went in yesterday.
    We do not expect more than a few freezing night now so it is safe to pur it in.
    So I got my first set yesterday!
    There was a bit of ice on the shoreline the other day.
    So water was 0C. Air a few degres but better in the sun.
    I hope Horton do not read this.
    With BI type -97 I expect a comment about my brain capabilites.

    One could debate if there is
    nothing right in my left side and
    nothing left in my right side.
    Life is too short not to enjoy every day!

    Still no first ride in Michigan for me. My actual first ride of 2014 was with @Wish and his neighbor in Florida on April 6. Many thanks to @Wish and his neighbor for their hospitality and a very nice site.

    I've been sick since I returned from Florida and the site prep for our club is not done to begin skiing. Working on that this weekend - maybe a run then?

    I think I like Florida better than Michigan.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

    Although in rare years I've skied our home site in a shorty on the last wknd in April... this year, the ice still isn't out (2.5 hours north of Toronto).

    If this global warming keeps up, I am buying a snowmobile.
    Shut up and ski

    No luck here in northwestern WI yet. Normally we get back on the river in early March.

    Not the North by some standards. We skiied Southwest Missouri this morning. Air 42 F water 54 F Baller index -6.668. Wow cold water inhibits proper brain capacity...maybe that's what the baller index really measures.
