May last year was wet, ski fields had a ton of snow & Dobson opened early, for free.

Then nothing in June, July, puked mid august onto hard packed ice and people died in the avalaches...

I'm about to ignore the rain and go riding anyway. It makes the hot bath/shower when I get home so much more enjoyable.

Well sick of this weather.

After having been outside for a max of 5min all week I got so desperate I had to bust out the running shorts today. My legs are well sore now.

Well I just brought an Earth Sea Sky, Zeal Guide jacket, very much worth the dollars for keeping warm and dry and the hood even fits over a bicycle helmet :) would recomend to anyone. A pair of Ground Effect Helterskelters turned up on friday arvo to keep the my legs dry and warm and when I have some money again I will get my self some touring style mud guards to keep my feet dry :thumbsup:. Who said you have to drive a car to stay warm and dry in this industry.
