We, or rather a group had to cancel a motorcycle trip that was scheduled for tomorrow. Every fall my Blue Knights Chapter plans an overnight trip to the Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge & Resort in Stecoah, NC on their last weekend before closing for the season. Well, that weekend was supposed to begin tomorrow but Mother Nature really threw us a curve this year. You see, here in the southeastern U.S. we’re expecting back to back arctic cold fronts to come through. The first one has already passed and dropped temperatures to the mid 50’s (F) for highs here. As I type this it’s 49° F and overcast up at the Iron Horse. Tomorrow’s high temperature is now forecast to be 36° F! We were already prepared for cold weather and that wasn’t scaring us off. But the second front is bringing moisture with it. Tonight at the Iron Horse it’s supposed to begin raining and then after midnight that rain will be changing to snow. It’s now forecast to continue snowing in Stecoah until about 5:00 pm on Saturday afternoon. The National Weather Service isn’t saying it could change to snow but that it will change to snow. The Iron Horse is in a valley so they won’t be hit with as much snow as the slightly higher elevations but they’re still forecasting between 1 and 3 inches of snow in the valleys. That’s not exactly motorcycle friendly weather. There was an idea to ride up in cars but as we get closer to the Iron Horse, the roads are more rural and less traveled. The Iron Horse had also called our trip’s organizer concerned with the weather and guests travelling to them. So it looks like we’ll have to wait until at least the spring of 2015 to head back to the Iron Horse.
