Thread: How 'Bout This Weather?

    How 'Bout This Weather?

    Out West has been amazingly warm with NO snow to speak of...and there is nothing in the next 7 days either. I heard that at Alta (resort that gets the most snow) it has been the second driest start on record.

    What hates it?

    Who loves it? (pick me, pick me)

    I've been enjoying it. I was in the west desert yesterday (Tintic Mountains) and it was high 50's! I was in Logandale, NV just before Christmas and it was high 60's, low 70's!

    I do worry about our water levels for the Summer, though.

    We were at 29 this morning but all in all winter has been a real pussy thus far. I don't know why I bought the snow shovel. Not only do I not had the opportunity to use it, it does not fit really well in the back of my Subaru.

    I've ridden my mountain bike to the top of Corner Canyon every day for the past week. It has been awesome, I've had the trails all to myself for the most part except for yesterday when a few others finally figured out the mountain biking was still excellent in Corner Canyon.

    It has been in the 80's the last couple days here in AZ. Wearing shorts and sandals outside on New Years Day just didnt feel right.

    I have been hearing about some downhill trails with stunts in the Draper area that are currently rideable with this mild weather. Just yesterday while riding drycreek to Bobsled a couple of bikers were telling me about the Draper area trails.

    75 here in bullhead today. shorts and sandals the order of the day.
    But if I agreed with you, we would both be wrong.

    There are two downhill stunt trails that I know of, plus miles of casual hiking and biking routes.

    I golfed on Dec. 26th in Provo, Utah. That was a first for me.

    Looks like we finally got a little bit of the white stuff in my neck of the woods. I've got about an inch on the ground. A nice weekend present for the skiers and boarders.
