    Well, we are looking at 8-13" of snow starting late tonight, travel virtually impossible at time tomorrow. This is a crazy spring - or lack of one.

    All winter long, we were planning to break out the TT the first weekend of April. But 16 degrees on that Saturday put the kibosh to that idea. Now were watching the weather forecasts carefully and taking it weekend by weekend.

    We have reservations for May 4-7 to meet up with a new camping group. Surely, spring will have sprung by then...we hope.

    To make matters worse, I was in Phoenix for four days this past week on business. High every day was 90-plus. [:)C]

    Wife and daughter are away a few days next week and I had plans with some guys for a 3-day black iron, barbeque, and beer camping trip in the boonies of northern MN. Even if this new snow melts by then, it will be a mud pit in the woods. Have to move it back to the first part of May.

    We just saw our latest snowfall on the 16th in Chicagoland and we have plans on going out on the second week of May. Out of curiosity I searched for the latest snowfall in the Chicago area... Tom Skilling of WGN notes in his blog, the latest snowfall on record happened on May 11th in 1966. We're forecast to have a big warm up over the next week By Sunday they're calling for 60 degrees. Started to worry a bit. lol

    Doesn't look like ya'll are out of the weather yet ? It is a wonder you don't have cabin fever by now. Maybe it will eventually give you a chance to get out and enjoy the outdoors. Good Luck and Happy Camping

    We had a light frost, my neighbor had planted his small plants frost killed them all. Corn is still ding good. I have no doubt ya'll are going nuts. I was stationed in New Port R.I for a 2 year tour on a DD. I told the detailer when I left "if I ever get orders up here again, there will be feet prints on the road, ya'll are going to have to drag me, I ain't coming on my own." I also did a couple of winter classes at Great Lakes a few times. I do not understand how people willingly live up north.
    I want no part of that mess. I hope ya'll get a good thaw, warmer weather, and it stays that way for awhile..

    I love New England because I would rather have a Blizzard than A Tornado an Ice Storm over a Hurricane beside that I love the winter for about 2 months December & January and the only thing good about August is September is next.

    First, NO ONE has better weather in the late spring, summer and late fall months than the northern states. Second, Minnesota has 11,842 fishable NATURAL lakes, and I have a boat. Third, there are PLENTY of things to do outside in the winter if you choose to do them. Fourth, NO hurricanes, NO earthquakes or oppressive heat for weeks on end. Fifth, within driving distance of Canadian fishing adventures. Sixth, some of the best camping and campgrounds on earth.

    I'm sure others can add more.

    In the north, we may get spring fever once in a while, but we don't have hide from the weather if we don't want to.
