I only remember one happening in my entire life.  I think it would be so cool to see one again.  My boys have never seen snow in real life, maybe next year.
 
A chilly 60 degrees today.  When it gets below 70 in Texas everyone calls it, "good chilli cookin' weather".

I have seen snow a few times in Ga but only once about 13 years ago or more on Christmas day. Last year we had a dusting but nothing to big.The kids played a little but it was all melted by noon the next day.

I would love a snow mobile, but to much money for it, and way to much to maintain it.  My fourwheeler hardly needs any maintainence, it just goes and goes and goes.

Ya Honda's are not recommended to use trax on.  Because of the transmission that actually shifts.  Yamaha, Polaris and others that have the snow mobile type transmission will have no problem with them.  The centrifical (sp) clutch works a lot better with them.  I put that 700 Grizzly in low range and it has so much torque that nothing could slow it down.

We had a White Christmas here in Western Oregon for the first time in many years. I'd post a picture if I knew how.
