Default WHO CANT WAIT FOR THE SNOW???????

Hey guys, tomorrow we are supposed to get a little snow and ice!!!!!! Cant wait to get skiing again, last year I only went 6 times because we didnt get out to utah and the LSA (local ski area) Closed, but is now opening back up!!! its nothing special but good clean fun, carving some 2" deep rivits in the snow on a freshly groomed trail is heaven. Sometimes i grab my mini's and head to the park and do some jumps and rails but i'd rather carve. Who els cant wait to ski/board????

The cold is liberating, caressing, crushing, and beautiful. I have tired of the flaming summer.

I love snow, I just hate having only a few inches of it.

Not looking forward to waking up at 5am to go snowblow the road so I can get to work. Hurray for country roads.

Reiko, it's not going snow in Livermore is it? [&:]

But yeah, it's been too hot the last few days even here in the East Bay, I can only imagine how much worse it is further inland.

Unlike a lot of you, this is when I do most of my rc driving. I can start drifting again because the asphalt isn't 120+. My track holds water much better during the day. I actually started on a new layout this weekend. It's still hot here, but much cooler than usual.

^^ you would love living in the mountains then. In the winter try driving up a mountain road with no visibility. You have to open your car door and follow the yellow line and hope you dont get hit....

SNOW AND COLD SUCK! i HATE it.

got to shuvle the driveway, scrape off your car 10 below, you can loose controll of your car (mine is like a sled) and the cold just hurts you anywhere skin is exposed, especially me, because my heart rate is only 40bpm and my blood pressure is very low, my blood temp is always 97.9 to 98.1 i get the chills at 70degrees.

okay i can understand the shovelling part of snow would suck, but we never get much to care, the most we have ever had in one year was like maybe 8 inches at that was really it. we drive 45min to the nearest resort and have fun there. its awsome.

Not likely. But, I will drive up and over Tioga pass before they close the road for the season.

Right now, the only winter is my frigid attitude [:'(]
