Anyone else buried under ungodly amounts of white poo?

My wife pointed out today that it was sort of silly to be so excited about bikes and bike parts when we have over a foot of fresh snow sitting every where (AND ITS STILL COMING DOWN). I agree, but good Lord I'm ready for DRY ground. Considering that all of this crap we have been hammered with for the past few months has no place to go I have a feeling it will be a while.

Those of you with dry ground, feel very lucky, I am jealous.

I couldn't live in or around where snow dumps. I imagine it's great in the summer but I'd go bananas in the winter. I like boarding a lot but not as much as biking.

We had a good long amount of wet days that just past leaving us a few nice blue sky days. Still kinda chilly and windy but I ain't complaining.

Sorry to hear about your woes.

I built a set of snow jumps last year. Tried it again this year and it did not work. So I built a nice quarter pipe to hit up with the skis.

No, not really. Either wet and muddy or hot and humid as all get-out. There's usually 2-3 "perfect" days a year here and chances are I'm in my office when they happen. I need to relocate!

We just have either frozen or mud in NJ. I'd rather have a good amount of snow to get some days in at the mountain. That being said, I can't wait for spring I have some ideas I want to start working on at the trails.

Last year, we had no snow on the ground until 2/14.

I know that there is more to come this season, but we are snow-less for now.

We were pretty well done after Christmas last year, and that was a lot for us. We haven't even had white Christmases for more then a few years in there. This year we have had snow every other day for pretty much late November on. I haven't seen snows like this since I was a little kid.

Oh well, The groundhog saw his shadow so I was feeling optimistic, perhaps we shouldn't trust the little bugger.

BTW, the snow biking pics were rad. We did that in college and had some fun with it, riding 20s and hucking. I built "trails" in my yard another year, but they were ice jumps and I actually cracked my old Robinson AL racing frame, oops.
