Unhappy Did anyone brave the snow??

At West Branch MI swap meet this weekend? I got up at 4 on Saturday with a trailer load ready to go and looked out to see about 3 inches of wet SNOW on the ground. A look at the internet weather showed even worse down at West Branch. That's 3 hours SOUTH of me !!!

I wanna know how the swap meet went..........

Well I got there about 9:30 a.m on Saturday. Not much action, very slow with just a very few engines. I planned on sleeping in my enclosed trailer, but decided a room was going to be more comfortable. Sunday was worse, High winds and snow, Everyone packing up and pulling out. I was gone by 11:30. Did spend time with some good friends. Other than that no much went on.

Maybe next time.
