I hope we get some action down in OC! I hope it snows big up north near Houghton Lake. Going up there next week and would like to hit up the ORV trails!

Oh, 1/2 of the predicted drop? Don't forget about lake effect snow, something you guys don't usually deal with

True, but the expectation of this storm was only 3-6 on Monday, by Wednesday it was 6-12. We got 3-6. Whatever they said on Monday is probably what you'll get. They've been over hyping this all week long out here.

Shit they cancelled half the town a day in advance of the snow storm.

It's raining like a mofo in Holland right now. Weather lady said it will turn into snow sometime tomorrow so I'm guessing it will get icy.

Actually I'd prefer to move to the mountains out west somewhere, or possibly the northern east coast (upstate new york, vermont, new hampshire, etc.)

One can only dream.

You would not do well on the east coast. I have a lot of friends that way.... A LOT of yuppies.

All the east coast mountain people I have met through mountain biking have been cool. I don't think yuppies will be a problem, last I checked the union didn't have any Vermont or New hampshire locations.
