Snow!

Its snowing outside again, and in speaking with my friend in So Carolina, i realized that many people probably have never seen real snow before. Its exciting cuz i ski/snowboard/snowmobile... What about everyone else?

Hey RawRR, how much snow do you guys get on the ground over there in Wisconsin? I know here in Cali, the mountains can have up to 10-12 feet on the ground at times.

First make an "S".............for snake, uh.................I mean.............dragon. Then a more different "S".

Snowboarding is a way of life. I'll have been snowboarding for 23 yrs this season..





I'm never wrong. I once thought I was wrong, turns out, I was mistaken.

here in VA we get snow storms. i dont ski or snow board, but we ride 4 wheelers in the snow. that is a lot of fun.

i really want to ride a snow mobile some time. it looks like a blast!

ive never really thought about the fact that someone has never seen snow before, because i grew up in b.c we get a bit here nothing huge though, unpredictable. I was riding earlier (freezing my ass off) and its snowing now, kindof a weird thought.

coldest ive seen is probably -15*f in upstate new york. the wind chill made it feel like -30*f tho.

the coldest it really gets in my area is around 10*f. unless its like a freak storm...

I am originally from Michigan, so yes, I have seen snow. Much less of it here in Virginia, but enough to screw up my riding.

Snow??? Doesn't it have to be like cold for that to happen. Well I guess I'll just stick to ridding since snow doesn't happen in 70* weather. Well have fun with your snow stuff.

I donno dude, it's still comin' down... 's supposed to stop around midnight, but the wind is the son of a biatch that's screwin' with my snow removal! 5-8 inches, yeah... but there's also the 3-4 ft. drifts that come with the 30 MPH winds! ridiculous!

although, it's about time we get a normal winter here in wisconsin, eh?

yeah i suppose. it doesnt help that there's a solid layer of ice underneath the snow on the roads. makes for some interesting driving in my 2wd truck
