    From mid November to mid January drags on my outlook. My turning point is when it is staying light after five. We be there:D
    I would not make it in Alaska

    I was thinking the exact same thing at 5:07 PM today! Shouldn't it be dark already with this crappy cloud cover?

    Tascha might make it out for a bit if I can get out there. She has some issues that preclude us from leaving her alone so Karen would have to be there with her during the day and her schedule may not allow her to come out. We will see.

    IT'S BEAUTIFUL!!!

    Same here. Usually around November I'm beat and tired from riding all year and welcome the break.
    December: still taking a break, but it's a good thing there's football on.
    January: cabin fever up in here. Up in here? Up in here!
    February: a couple of day trips to the hills to see how snowy it is (this year, none) and Eddieville Playdays to get warmed up.
    March: Flag drops at the 6 Hour Race, and it's Summer :clap
    I don't care if it snows a foot on the way home, Summer is here and it's motorcycle time!

    Out in front of the office building, waiting patiently to get ridden home...in the LIGHT!

    In just about 5 weeks, we have Daylight Savings back. That means it'll be light to about 7:30.

    Not to jump it too much, but I'm starting to see buds on the trees and my Day Lillies have broken ground.

    I noticed this morning on the way into work at 6:45am that there was a little light that I didn't notice a few days ago. It's been such a crappy ski season for me so far that I'm really looking forward the spring.

    Yes sir! That's why this winter has drraaagggeddddd on for me. Usually go to the hill, get 2 hours of good riding in, and back to work for the day.
    I'm just a mopey bitch this year.

    I have given up on skiing this year, but up here it has been the best winter in memory for dirt biking. The trails at tahuya usually require a snorkel around this time, but it has been nearly perfect for the last six weeks.

    So much for winter time maintenance, its too nice out to wrench! Poor little dirt bike.

    One month + a few days later and it's BEAUTIFUL outside! 60 degrees, sunnyish and can't wait to ride tomorrow, and have an extra hour to play in the evenings. Puts a smile on my face!

    Another winter survived :clap.

    Hoodoo and Willamette Pass are not open. I think Hoodoo's been open 3 days this year and Willamette Pass none. Cannot remember when that last happened.

    Willamette Pass today:

    I don't think Hoodoo opened at all till February last year. Ashland took out a $750,000 loan to cover last year (didn't open at all) and operate this year.(still not open):puke1

    Eventually am guessing that global warming will kill those three.
