Im just wondering whats chilly in Florida? Because I put my motorcycle up for the winter when it gets to be right around 40 all the time. Its cold when you get off your bike in the beging of December in Michigan.

Here in central Missouri we saw our first snow of the season,with only about a 1 1/2" of snow accumulation,the wind has been gusting up to 40+ mph and it's going down in the mid teens tonight.
I really appreciate our wood furnace in this kind of weather.

Default Let it snow!

Just as long as somebody else has to shovel it! I have been waiting for it to snow. I run a snow removal business, and I'm still kind of pizzed after last year. Thanks for the heads up folks. I know what I'll be doing on Saturday and Sunday. It's heading right for my area, and I can definitely use the money.

Stay safe everyone. frostbite hurts, and hypothermia is nothing to mess with. If you start getting cold, go inside and warm up.

Gary, I have a question for you. You can always shovel snow, but how do you shovel a hurricane?

If it's a nice enough day to wash the bike, it's d@mn well also a nice enough day to be riding it instead.

50-60 is great riding weather. Thats early summer weather for us. If 50-60 is cold weather im moving down there. Does it really rain as much as ive heard?

It doesn't rain much at all. Mostly when it does you drive across town an you just drive out of it.
As far as the hurricanes well thats a diffrent story. We haven't had one directly in quite some time though

I ended up with somewhere between 15" and 20" depending on where in the yard you go. (Pics are panoramic)
