    Mostly clear, with a low around 7. Northwest wind 5 to 8 mph becoming calm in the evening.

    Scattered snow showers, mainly after 4pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 27. Calm wind becoming south 5 to 8 mph in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 30%.

    Thursday Night
    A chance of snow showers, mainly between 10pm and 11pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 24. South wind 3 to 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%.

    plus 4" combo of snow and ice on everything.

    it's parked for a while.

    Really didn't want to 'like' but understand. I never put mine 'up' in Northern Indiana have it ready to ride when the roads are dry.

    that was my plan, but I moved further north and the last 2 winters, once it started snowing up here. the roads (at least my road, the 1st 3/4 of a mile) aren't the greatest. never really dry. and can't assume it's not black ice. that's probably why it's a snowmobile access route to the ITS system.

    so for now the SS is tucked into the garage hooked up to a solar panel/charger to keep it at def con 2

    on the plus side (I guess) I can ride my snowmobile at least 100 miles south and 200+ miles to the north to either the Quebec or New Brunswick border, then however far Canada's snowmobile trails are. I know people who travel to Montreal and Quebec City for dinner.

    oh wait, they changed their minds..

    "Thursday Night
    Snow. Low around 23. Light northeast wind increasing to 5 to 10 mph in the evening. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of 3 to 7 inches possible."

    I do believe this marks the end of SS season.

    ❄️Snow expected Thursday and Friday❄️

    The first widespread snow of the season is expected later Thursday into Friday. Motorists with travel plans, especially Thursday night into early Friday, should prepare for potential hazardous driving conditions. While it is still too early to talk specific amounts, the attached graphic shows the probabilities of any location seeing 2" or more of snowfall.

    No photo description available.

    I didn't bring the SS on this trip because it required 50+ miles of gravel, sometimes dirt roads, and I didn't think the SS (or me) would be too happy, so I took my jeep. But I thought it would be interesting for those of you who served.

    I wandered down the Golden Road from Millinocket ME to the 1963 B52 crash site on Elephant Mountain. interesting place. On the walk up the hill, you start seeing small (1-2 foot) pieces of metal. They get bigger as you move up the trail, til your finally seeing broken landing gear, and larger pieces of the cockpit and wings.

    Another interesting thing was there were abut a dozen people walking around looking at the pieces, and no one was talking. There was a quiet respect surrounding the site.

    The great thing about the Slingshot is that riding in cold weather works … I ride in Northern Indiana as long as there is NO snow on the road. I don't worry about the 'salt/chemicals' ---- rain will wash that all off in the Spring.

    agreed, but i'll modify that slightly, I don't drive in cold weather if the roads are wet, as you can't tell if it's just wet or black ice.

    I know you miss winter real bad, come on back and we can fit a couple of skis on the front wheels and put a studded snow on the rear of the SS. we'll be the envy of all the snowmobilers 8)

    it's been my daily driver since June when I bought it.

    just over 11k miles on it the past 4 months.

    now I'm starting to do 1/2 & 1/2 with my jeep as it's getting colder and wetter (40* and rain ain't enjoyable)

    in another month or so when the white stuff starts sticking, it'll get tucked into the garage with a tank of eternal free and a battery tender.
