Weather: Warmer and snow possible
Trail Conditions: Good to Very good.
From talking to riders it sounds like 1 north got bit up a bit yesterday, I’m sure the some of the others got beat up a bit with all the traffic and warm sun beating down. We have warm temps the next few day but it is still getting cold at night. I didn’t expect all the traffic that we had this weekend, in fact Friday was one of the busiest days we had all year. Why, I have no idea, I figured it would be winding down this weekend and then we get hit big time. But a big thank you to everyone that stopped in. I’ll never understand business in the UP, it is either feast or famine.
It’s March 1st and usually it slows way down. I am planning on taking off for a ride on the 9th, hopefully that week is a lot slower. Did I really say that? As March goes on either all of you get into other interests or don’t believe the trails are still in good shape. I have road in March the last 3 or 4 years and I have always have great conditions. We groom till the end of March, weather permitting, time will tell how the rest of the month plays out.
A shout out to Joe Cretney, you had to try and fly your sled at the Skyview, you missed the beef buddy.
COLD WINTER WEATHER REPORT
It’s late fall and the Indians on a remote reservation in North Dakota asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild.
Since he was a chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky, he couldn’t tell what the winter was going to be like.
Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.
But, being a practical leader, after several days, he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked, ‘Is the coming winter going to be cold?’
‘It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold,’ the meteorologist at the weather service responded.
So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood in order to be prepared.
A week later, he called the National Weather Service again. ‘Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?’
‘Yes,’ the man at National Weather Service again replied, ‘it’s going to be a very cold winter.’
The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find.
Two weeks later, the chief called the National Weather Service again. ‘Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?’
‘Absolutely,’ the man replied. ‘It’s looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters we’ve ever seen.’
‘How can you be so sure?’ the chief asked.
The weatherman replied, ‘The Indians are collecting a shitload of firewood’
