I say "Might" and I genuinely mean it. Down here in the southern part of the state, sometimes known as the more tropical corner, we got by with only freezing rain, sleet and flakes that stubbornly fought accumulation. In central Minnesota, reports of 8-10 with blizzard force winds. Up along the Lake, reports of +24 inches, possibly exaggeration of the highest order??
At coffee in Minneapolis this morning, yards were completely white and the coffee drinkers that came in from the northern suburbs were reporting 1-2" on the ground; any paved areas still basking in yesterday's mid-50 degree temps maintained Mostly Dry.
Paul doesn't worry....about much of anything. He rides a Ural! You can't see them in the photo but there were very light flakes falling when I took this photo in front of Diamond's this morning.
Last night before the winds were raging at 50 and before the rain had turned to a solid, I loaded up my collection of old batteries that were in the way beside the garage, placed as far to the back of the van as possible for convenience sake. For some reason, those I met on the highway this morning were flashing their lights at me. 6 volt tractor and 'cycle batteries, 12 volt models of every size and description. Our propane guy won't have these to kick around (or step over) any longer.
After coffee, they were carted into K&K for some extra coffee money.
This afternoon I helped our daughter move. This afternoon my brother helped his daughter move.
There were a couple of other very bundled up riders out today in the city. A Grom, its rider so heavily attired that the bike was doing well just to move him. I held back, hoping to have the chance for a Salute but he wasn't keeping up with 30, then 29, then 28, then....finally he got stuck behind a line of cars and I had to get going. Another very smart looking rider was on a shiny red Indian Scout.
Today I did not ride, but the TW200 is parked just inside the door and I know that it will start if/when asked. A short ride on the gravel would be apropos on Thanksgiving weekend.
