I'm going to be 82 in a couple months, and its still fun!

Rich, nice to see you here again. I'll be 80 in August, so not far behind you. Like you I'll probably ride (the Good Lord willin' and the creek don't rise) till it's not fun anymore, taking into account how I'll feel the next day! So far I feel great, not counting this cold and touch of pneumonia it left me with which is slowly resolving itself with my doc's help. Can't do much riding with a good 20" of snow still on the ground from our massive 3' snowstorm Wed night through Fri noon this past week. Heaviest snowfall here in Rim Country in the past 10 years - and that's sayin' something!...

I saw the news article about the snowfall in the Mogollons and was wondering how you were surviving.

Worst winter in decades around here. Usually I'm able to take the XT225 for a ride around the middle of February but this year there has been no break from the weather yet. I'm housebound and its driving me crazy. But at my age falling down would not be good.

The Sierra really got hit hard. News showing only the tops of houses sticking up out of the snow. Around Lake Tahoe, first they said the snow was too deep for snow plows so they had to bring in the giant snowblowers. Now the snow blowers can't get through the snow so last night on the news they were showing huge Cat trackhoes slowly chewing their way along the highway. 5 more feet of snow predicted by this weekend.........darn that global warming!

Doing alright now. AZ-260 from Payson east to Heber/Overgaard was closed to traffic early Thursday morning, as was AZ-277 north to Snowflake and Taylor. Road closures lasted till just before noon on Friday while crews worked to get them open again. It was definitely a lot of snow, 3' and more in places, and people without 4 wheel drive high ground clearance vehicles found themselves stuck in place a couple of days.

Jerry H. sent me a PM that I won't share in detail here unless he says it's OK. What I will share is that he left Chandler in a rain storm last Thursday headed north towards Payson on AZ-87 thinking he'd enjoy a fun drive there and back. By the time he got to Payson he was in really heavy snow. Fueling up he thought he'd better head back to the Valley. He made it just out of Payson proper to the Casino where he turned in to find a place to park. Hours later a snow plow headed south on 87 and Jerry and a few others fell in behind thinking it would get them safely out of the high country and back to the rainy desert. Their hopes were dashed when a short distance out of town the snow plow made a u-turn through the medium and headed back to Payson, leaving Jerry and the others in that travel pack facing snow so heavy on the roadway that in short order they were all stuck, facing every which way, some off the road in the ditch. The story doesn't end there, but I'll leave it to Jerry to tell it in detail if he cares to do so. Suffice it to say he spent 16 hours in his vehicle unable to move before a snow mover with chains on its wheels cleared a turtle paced path some 50 miles south of Payson where the snow turned to rain and traffic began to flow again..

Being housebound and going slowly crazy is a lot better than taking a tumble and injuring yourself!
