Yo Hawk. I'm pretty sure that you'll be fine w/a quad. I had mine out in the slop last Thurs and Fri and didnt have any issues. There's been no real snow accumulation since. Im sure its hardened up nicely by now. Email me...

I heard of a possible snow storm mid week your way. Any truth to the rumor from your end?

All I could find is-

... MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOWFALL POSSIBLE ALONG WITH BLOWING SNOW WEDNESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY NIGHT...

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP OVER THE CENTRAL PLAINS TUESDAY AFTERNOON. THERE REMAINS UNCERTAINTY ON BOTH THE TRACK AND INTENSITY OF THE SYSTEM AS IT LIFTS NORTHEAST TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY. HOWEVER... NORTHERLY WINDS DEVELOPING ON WEDNESDAY WILL BRING COLD AIR SOUTH ACROSS LAKE SUPERIOR... RESULTING IN LAKE EFFECT SNOW SHOWERS. PLAN ON THESE SNOW SHOWERS TO CONTINUE INTO WEDNESDAY NIGHT. IN ADDITION... BLUSTERY CONDITIONS ARE ALSO EXPECTED WEDNESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY NIGHT... RESULTING IN AREAS OF BLOWING SNOW. BOTH THE SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW SHOULD GRADUALLY DIMINISH ON THURSDAY AS THE SYSTEM MOVES FARTHER AWAY FROM UPPER MICHIGAN.

But, w/the lake effect, ya never know! frown

Shack,

I heard on the radio this morning that Tonight -Wed we should be getting some snow. Not to alarm anyone, that is a pretty normal forecast for us. I think both wheelers and sleds will be fine, if you have both and need to choose, I would take the sled just to be on the safe side.

Hawk we have the same weather here in the snowbelt of the UP 6+ months out of the year. It will be a cloudy overcast day with NW winds from 5-15mph, gusting at times. There will be a winter advisory with a %50 chance of snow.

Have a great day in Big Snow Country.

Hardly any snow out of the "storm". I'd say I have maybe 2 inches tops at my house and the sun is tryin to peek out now. Quads will be fine...

Do you think I should put the chains on my wheeler? It is a 650 cat with front diff lock and usually is ok in a foot+ of snow.

Also what kind of tag if any will be needed on the snowmobiles or atv's?

I wouldn't put chains on my wheeler... You don't need em this weekend thats for sure. I have a 750 King Quad and they told me NOT to chain the tires becuase of the amount of low end torque...said I'd snap an axle...

There is no need for any atv liscense if you are ONLY running the lake. If you use a "trail" to get to the lake you would need one. So if you trailered right to the lake and go off that way you would not need any liscense/sticker... That info is straight from our recreation officers mouth minutes ago! smile

    • You'd think they'd give Stalock a look.  His overall NHL stats are OK and not that bad down in IA either....Kemps has to have a "great" night and have everything in front of him going our way to be good...he's not going to steal games for us like Dubs can IMO...give Stalock a shot in the nets!
    • 1 I'm on board, but not sure how you go about doing that. 2 laughably impossible 3 Sure, but it's not going to make a whole lot of a difference. 4 OK, I assume it would need to be replaced with something else though. 5 is open to a lot of interpretation as to what "make no sense"   None of that really puts the power back to the people though.   Do you still envision a representational government with elected leaders?    
    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
