    I don't like seeing large accumulations of snow after I "spring ahead" on my clocks.

    That is all.

    Based on what I just shoveled.....I'd say about 12" is the average.

    Pretty light stuff, with some icy stuff on top.


    I know it won't last long, but psychologically it's a real setback. I have been looking forward to some outdoor K5 wrenching. I've got a LOT of cool new parts coming in the next few weeks, and the thought of installing everything has me pretty stoked.

    :deal:

    Got one of mine today. :D

    After watching my kids ski in powder over their waists this weekend, I just can't complain about the snow, even though the 'to do' list is still pretty large and there's only 6 weeks until we leave for Rausch.

    Okay, ya busted me. :D

    Custom made, correct
    High ground clearance, correct again
    (only hangs down below the frame 3.5" compared to the stock 7.5")
    For Hobo, yeppers
    Stainless, nope aluminum
    18 gallons, just like stock.

    It's a sweet tank, mounts in the original location, has built in tank baffles and an internal pump for the fuel injection.

    Goes along with my latest body mod, a flush gas door.

    I'm thinkin' it's time for the hitch to disappear all together.

    It won't ever get used, so why have it messing with the departure angle? :grind:Definitely the lowest spot now.

    Dear Diary.....April 12th in New England.

    MORE SNOW????? :mad:

    What the crap is this? It's supposed to be Spring now.....the local college girls are supposed to be strutting around in skimpy outfits in the sunshine, and I'm supposed to be watching them....

    3-6" predicted for today, and another storm is coming in 48 hours.


    GRIPES!

    I just drove up to UVM last night during the snow. What a sh!tty drive! New Hampshire didn't have a single highway plowed or treated when I was driving through it. It wouldn't have been a problem had I been in my truck but I was in my mom's Monte Carlo with a broken traction control dohicky.
