Winter 2023 isn't dead yet

Well looks like Winter has decided to stay a bit longer as Spring is only six days away. I called off work today and will be spending time doing my Winter shovel workout routine. Once this storm is over I sure hope the groomers get out before the weekend arrives and I can continue the Winter trail riding fun just a little longer.

It sure isn't gone yet, we have about 3-5" of powder and it is still coming down. Went out for a couple of short spins this afternoon, I've spent a lot of days riding the white this year

we got that same storm out here in Route 38, except it was all rain (2.5" worth). Any snow has already melted. 50s and 60s in the forecast.

Also I saw crocuses poking through on the way for groceries

In southern Ontario, it snows every April. And people who have been living here for years are still surprised when it happens.

It hasn't snowed much here since Christmas but we still have tons of snow because that's the way winter works on the prairie. Its been staying well below freezing but at least its been nice and sunny. The inactive rail line / dog walking trail was packed hard enough I could tackle it on the mountain bike. They are supposed to be reactivating that line eventually but it shouldn't see much traffic.

Okay, I tempted fate for Minnesota and replaced my front studded tire with the summer Gatorskin. The rear Gatorskin has been on a couple of weeks, after having to put the studded tire back on for a week after having gotten a bit too excited in February.

The winter bike has the fenders for the spring melt, so it "ain't being put away for the summer yet." There's a lot of melt to come...
