Well, Im still on spring break right now, but two of my friends and one of my friends dads headed up north to do some snowmobiling. The plan was to be there untill last night (tuesday night) but two things happened, the weather got really warm and the trail were starting to go, and second, we all ran out of money, lol. Anyways it was still a great time and I love going up to the UP because it is sooo beautiful up there. Here are just acouple pictures.

Snow in NY is gone. Rained all day and about a foot of snow was gone by the time i got home [235pm eastern time]. I'm glad, though. I cant do much outside with snow. ;)

What is all that white stuff?

Did you all consider snow-mobiling across the lake? (on the water, not on the ice/white stuff). Was watching a Top Gear thing on YouTube the other day about Icelandic racing, and they had this "Jeep" with gigantic tires that had, essentially, paddles on it, and drove it across a portion of the lake. Then raced a snowmobile across it. The Snowmobile won, but it was still pretty cool.

I have driven my sled across an actual lake during the summer. With no modifications to it.

I know, it was like a 150ft gap of water. Only did it like twice though.

I agree. I actually got to crack my window this week and drive with the wind in my hair... now that was relaxing... I love the sun. Something we dont get alot of in NY in the winter haha. (Or in general :( )

That and I'm looking forward to getting my dads motorcycles on the road and getting my motorcycle permit. :) This spring/summer is going to rock. Although... I've gotta change the oil on my car quickly. It seems that sat its going to snow again :(. (And it was like 60 the other day... oh how I love Rochester NY... :( )

No more snow here! Got to a chilly 55* yesterday, but most other days have been in the 70s-80s. Next week is supposed to be even warmer and it's SPRING BREAK BABY! Whooo Hoooo!

Cool pictures. I didn't realize how much snow was actually around the lake, especially since we don't get that much ever.
