Feb 1 is pretty much the coldest point of our winter. Starts getting better after that. I have a new (old stock) 2017 XL1200C I'd like to be doing the break-in ritual on and getting ring seal. Instead I'm still shoveling snow... Since my garage/shop isn't heated I can't even go out and fuss over it, or my R9T. 2 bikes and a riding mower sitting there connected to Optimate 3 & 4's. Winter sucks.

Yes I understand how that goes; it just never made sense to me for Winter to start at Midwinter, and Summer at Midsummer. Makes much more sense that the day with the longest amount of daylight is the middle of Summer (as it is named), not the beginning.

After 33" of snow in feb. the weather is starting to moderate. So, guess what the new warnings are? Yep, flooding! So, if you live in a flood plain, keep yer boat ready. Sandbags are a good idea also.
