Snow was soft because it was still reasonably fresh, I think they had gotten 8-10" total in the 5 days prior.

Never know, man. This weather is pretty wild. By far the best conditions I've had this late in the season in MI.

Forecast is calling for another 4-8" between tonight and Wednesday up there and the 10-day forecast looks favorable to at least preserve most of the snow in the trees. It may be rutted out or iced up a bit, though, which wont' be as fun.

Although you're unlikely to see any fresh snow that late in the year, it's still possible (my brother was born on 3/30/1982 and I think there were like 2ft of snow on the ground in Detroit that year... my folks have a picture of me at ~22 months or whatever age I was standing in the driveway next to the snowbanks).
