The Riv Is Not Coming Out For A While....Springtime In Wisconsin

Recommended Posts

I thought I would share these photos with you. We are now approaching 20" of snow in the last 2 days.  Snowfall records for April are being shattered all over the state. We are well over 30" for the month of April. My snowblower and I have become very well acquainted again. The Riv will not be coming out for awhile longer. I will have to live viCARiously through those of you in warmer climes. Take an extra drive for me. Hopefully, the snow will be gone in time for Overland Park.

Our state bird is the Robin. They probably wished they had listened to their friends in Mexico and stayed a couple of more weeks.

Wow that is not good. I feel for ya. It’s been very miserable and cold here up until 3 days ago. Couple days in the 80s. Winter coats and boots one day and shorts and tank top the next!

Came home last night and thought it strange to see snow on our freshly mowed lawn. Lush green and snow white.

Went from mid 60s here in the Northeast  yesterday (first nice day) in which I was able to mess with the new headlights on the Riv, to low 40s again today and sort of rainy.  Grrrr.

Hey Bill

Makes it a good time to do this.

I hear you Chuck. I wish I had the space like you do to take car of things like that. Once upon a time I had a 2 stall, insulated, heated garage for the play cars. It was heaven. That really helps with cabin fever in the winter. I do feel lucky that at least I have a place on my current property to store it over the winter. It looks like you are really going to town on your Riv. Are you leaving it the original color and interior? I hope so, I thought the silver on silver was really sharp when I saw it in Flint. I can't wait to see the finished product. Back to the Bricks in 2019 is a possibility. Keep me posted on your progress.

Tom,

 

I believe you. I think I may have a problem getting it to the driveway and to the road though.

I have heard the states surrounding the Great Lakes have three seasons, July, August, and Winter. May be some element of truth there. I have actually heard of folks from Minnesota going to Alaska in the winter where they find the temperature warmer.

God’s country. Some claim on a clear night in Plano you can look up and see the moon is shaped like the State of Texas.
