the funniest thing ,I'm just spent 6 hours driving in it .Normally takes 25 min from the strip to boulder city ,and here it took me 6 hours LOL :lol: this is comical,I moved out here to get away from this crap.Although watching people out here navigate through the snow at the usual speed of 100 mph ,which leads to the delay,there were trucks spinning their wheels stranded all over the city mass amounts of motorists stuck in snow banks,Oh and the occasional A-hole who thinks he's got things pretty figured out ,shooting up the shoulder only to run off the road into the back of a troopers brand new 4x4 unit (no one injured by the way)funny as hell and ya realllyyyyyy should of been there.I've been driving in the snow along time,heck my first stroller ride as a baby was in the snow,and I still never get use to it ,but to watch novices take a whirl :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Van, It's fun watching people deal with snow when they are not use to it. We where coming home from Quartzsite two years ago and it snowed two inches in Tucson. It shut down the town. It was funny watching people touch snow it was as if they where touching dog #$^@. I will say it was pretty seeing snow on the Palm and Lemmon trees. Two inches around here is not worth mentioning.

Merry Christmas Wayne

Van, my buddy you watch the forecast for Mohave If we get a hard freeze you know your bus doesn't have antifreeze and I am not there to cover your ass.Call me on my cell I have one I am smart enough to answer now only cost me 19 bucks PS if you go over take some boxes and get a load of the pomegranets I have a bus a jeep full and they will go bad before we get back.

cody,Whaz up :D ,first of all once again let me say how nice it is to have you here on the board.Secondly it's amusing how reversed the situation is out here in vegas 9 months of steller weather (fall,winter ,spring) and 3 months of miserable heat and yes the joke is true (but it's a dry heat :lol: ),Very wierd hibernating in the summer.I love being able to ride my harley almost year round and come summer ,see ya .

I am a north eastern boy from N.Y.C (git-a-rope :lol: )and snow is no biggie to me ,so in that respect I miss the great white north.being stuck in a blizzard out here in vegas was totally unsuspected and kind a fun at the same time.I know you fellas must think I am kinda strange and this should confirm it ,what I failed to mention in the first post of this thread was I was on my harley in that mess the other night.

That 6 hour trip home(normally 25 minutes)in the blizzard the other night probably would have turned into a ten hour tour in the pick up.thank god for rumble strips on the side of the free way,which is what I used to maintain tracksion.Cody the only place out this way that has snow markers like yours that I have seen are up on the passes leading into the north shore of tahoe,pretty cool.Stay warm up there Cody,souds like you are there for the duration.Good luck ;)
