I guess more accurately the season. Winter is just getting started and I'm already sick of the cold. There's a good reason birds migrate south and I think I should follow them. Wood stove's been going for a week straight now, too cold to ride motorcycles (for me at least), and it's now getting dark a 5pm. I get depressed just thinking December, January, February, so 4 more months until the ides of March and really March weather isn't good either, so 5 more months. I do read more in Winter and tend to cook more as well. I have some maintenance to do on motorcycles but not 3 months worth! I'm going to look into going somewhere warmer next Winter at least for a month hopefully 2 or 3. I don't care for Florida maybe Texas, NM, AZ. What about Mexico, anyone here ever winter in Mexico?

If it makes you feel better, the weather is shit down here. We're in a 10-day streak where it's been 10F cooler than normal, and rained 5 of last 10 days. We have 2 more days of this shit left.

Down here prime motorcycle weather is from October thru April. Sucks when I get a week off and we get weather like this.

Sorry to hear that todd. I suppose rain is generally welcome there but not 5 out of 10 days.

I suppose everything is relative to where one is located, but I prefer this time of year to summer, minus the rain, of course. Half of my working career was graveyard, so I actually prefer when it's dark. Less traffic on the streets and the way the streets are lit gives everything more personality than during the day.

I've shifted snow every day for the past 8. Today is the first day it hasn't snowed or blowed.

Here in central Texas I am enjoying the weather. The city was just starting the stage 2 drough restrictions. Hopefully the rain will charge the aquifer and lakes.

There are many snowbirds in west Texas and south Texas.

I was in AZ last week, and it was downright chilly!
Then again... it was below freezing here when I got back. Yuck.




God bless America.

19° overnight low, high 48° today. Too cold for me, but fortunately I don't have to be out in it that much. My home, car and workplace are heated.

Good replies and many are "enjoying" similar (or even worse) weather.
I think I want to be a snow bird!

It’s been late December/January here in TX the past 10 days. F’in cold for this time of year. We usually don’t get freezing temps at night until a few days before Christmas. It was a 105 degree summer and now this cold..early.

Go west, young man, go west.... to Yuma AZ. Yuma is probably the warmest place you can find in the west USA in the wintertime. It's a tad warmer than Phoenix without all the traffic.

I’m in central AZ. 3500 feet elevation. It doesn’t rain often. It’s been so long I don’t remember the last rain, probably two months ago. It’s cold in the morning. Usually below freezing. Daytime highs are in the mid 60’s. Sunny almost everyday.
Downside us the springtime wind. It’s usually windy for April and May.

Yuma sounds OK. We spent a couple weeks in Tucson in March a few years ago which was nice. I briefly looked into buying a small place but never did then covid hit and have since decided I don't want to own a place unless maybe an RV.

In the mid '60's I used to work along side an old German who claimed to be a dispatch motorcyclist on the Eastern front during WWII.

And some of the stories he told me. Talk about being COLD.

I'll send you some riding pictures from FL in January, just to make you care a little less Big Grin


Just got back from riding in Scottsdale area, as long as you stay away from the city streets there are plenty of mountain roads and places to go, or road trip to Tuscon, Bisbee, Tombstone, Naco, weather can get pretty cold up in the mountains, some of the riders got up there and it was snowing.

My companion's brother lives in Ft Lauderdale and while the winters are nice, and it's great for boating which he does a lot of, I don't know how long I could enjoy myself there? But maybe take the canoe and combine a visit with some paddling and camping.... hmm.
