It's over. Bring on summer

Get out the bikes, fly rods and climbing gear. Winter is a dud. Let it melt and let's on with summer.

You're just saying that because it's true.

Funny you say that, I just brought my fly rod in to the shop on Tuesday to get a broken guide re-wrapped! It's not over until the fat lady sings....Utah(LCC) is pumping right now!
What now?

Mammoth Town Council votes to approve the TBID, which is going to tax a tourist when he visits town, then use the proceeds from the tax to encourage him to come back and visit again? :D

You guys are all doing it wrong (not grumpy), once you are in Utah, you are in F-ing Utah (3% beer & Utards, no thanx). No need to go anywhere but the Sierra....

There is plenty of terrain to climb out of here. HA-ha

I would be Grumpy to if I owned a bunch of sleds...
But it's going to be the best spring ever.

Snow up high, dirt down low!

I don't really care about that. Low mileage = less maintenance = less $$$ spent.

If you highlight my post there is a jinx in there but every season is a good one so I will take whatever is given to us. I manage to have fun winter, spring, summer, and fall. Now that hockey is done I am ready to step into spring by skiing, corn, climbing in pants and long sleeve shirt, fishing, and biking Lower Rock Creek.

Saw it. Let it ride.
I used to be with it, then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with, isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to yoooouuu.

You can't cop a buzz after drinking two twelve packs in Utah. You should try living and working there for a real eye opener.

Today was a freak out in Bishop. What summer? It was super windy and dustier than I have seen it. There were complete brown outs on the roads. It is cold. It may be an early spring, but you can pack it up until summer.

There ain't no jinx! It is too far out to tell anything in the mountains, and you locals should know that.

Otherwise, I will put a jinx on you-sucker!

Go climb a boulder!

We're going down to the Bishop Gun Club later this morning for some target practice and lunch when I'm done with PT. It's going to be a pleasant 61° down there.

1) I was just in Utah last week- the limit, for some stupid reason, on draft beer is 4%- but there's no limit on bottled beer. The Polygamy Porter was delicious.

2) Would it help if I took the winter tires off of my car?
