So this season begins the way last season ended--with dock and lift in the ice. Cry.gif What's up with the crazy cold and snow?

More snow today and a mix of snow and rain mid week. Hey, this cold spell killed the early skeeters ... got to think of something good.

Last week we had about 10 feet of open water in front of the cabin. This week, I could've ridden my sled on it. I went farther north where the lake effect was deeper. 59" of snow last week... after I'd gotten a sunburn on Monday... weird winter this has been!

How about some pics of the new ride? After you wipe the drool off, that is. :) I'm all for a collective sun dance. My lake opened last Wednesday, but keeps trying to refreeze at night. The temps, wind, and precipitation are keeping me from dropping the boat. Cry.gif

You guys must not pay attention to the news. That white stuff, ice, and freezing cold temperatures is called Global Warming.

Al Gore is a genious!

Warm weather is coming, just not around here. I am already out coaching baseball for 13/14 year olds. All three of our practices so far have been conducted in snow flurries. I am anxious to start some water time, however this spring is COLD. Two years ago we started March 6th.

From Saturday. If I can't water slalom, I'll powder slalom. Great balance and strength cross-training for skiing actually! :)

This was the most fresh snow I've ever ridden and the latest in the year I've ever ridden. Global Warming? Right... Shut up Al...

Everything is relative. We are having wonderful weather here in Central Cal lately, but I attended a meeeting at the Merced Irrigation District yesterday and they said Lake Mc Clure has already risen to its highwater mark and is on the way down. Last year the lake hit its highwater mark on the 4 th of July. :(

I know, its killing me. I think the temps will allow for it this comming weekend, although 5" of snow are forcasted for the next two days with a bit more on Saturday.

I'm in the situation. If I put it in today or tomorrow, it'll just sit there and collect snow/sleet/slush for the next couple of days. Once this little weather maker passes, the wind forecast looks horrid!!!

Oh, and Michael--

You just better hope I don't PM you every time I ski from June-September while you are working. Or recovering from one of your injuries. Your mailbox would overflow while your hull begs for water. Tease2.gif

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but someone already took your boat off the lift. Probably out skiing right now.
