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.

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

    • What are your guys favorite chatterbaits and conditions to throw these in? Any favorite trailers to use? What type of setup/line do you like to use with them?  Thanks.
    • We had a period in August where the wind wasn't too bad but since sturgeon opened there's been a weekly pattern of fronts coming through on Thursday/Friday and Saturday is WINDY then on Sunday when you're going home it's beautiful. Today and yesterday are no exception either. Although the forecast for this weekend seems to be nice.    With sturgeon coming to an end on Friday I'll probably be fishing muskies. Darn!  
    • Ya I am really in a box on this one, whatever will I do when there are never any good mainstream candidates to vote for?  I'm not sure we could have two worse options than the trash on stage last night. We all deserve better.
    • So who won, crazy Donald or big money republicanish Clinton?
    • So I gather by your lack of gloating that lije the rest of the country you think he lost the debate?  I wasn't interested enough to watch it from gavel to gavel but from what I saw he just got his butt handed to him by the mist vulnerable Democratic candidate in many decades. 
    • Great start for the team.  With a healthy Teddy, AP, and O-line we would have been really excited to be 3-0 having played Green Bay and Carolina.  Being 3-0 without Teddy, AP, and with a patchwork O line is almost unbelievable.   I do still have concerns about the offense.  They D can't win every game for them so the O will need to figure it out sooner or later.  If they can be even an average offense then I like our chances but right now they are far from even being average.
    • Well... The beast didn't suffer lazy eye, no coughing jag, no seizure, no chicken wobble. I guess that constitutes a win for the libs ?? Hahahaha.. Although, I think the beast used all her ammunition. Whereas, with two debates to go, the donald still has a lot of ammo.... Including a few grenades....
    • Trump may want to ask Johnson to be included in the upcoming debates because standing there and having Hillary hand him his butt all night isn't doing him any good.
