"take docks out???" You mean like docks on the water? I've heard that water becomes solid outdoors in some areas of the world, but it sounds absurd. Human life, let alone motorcycling, would be impossible in such an environment.

No, no, no. Global warming has taken care of all of that. There is no such thing as Winter any more. If you are caught wearing a sweater you are a Global Warming Denier and you will be rounded up for reprogramming.

Did you catch that idiot who thought he could sail around the base of the Arctic icepack because of all the global warming stuff he believed? He's ice blocked in now somewhere......

Ah, the Northwest Passage.

My Father was stationed on an Icebreaker in '64 or '65 whose Mission was the Circumnavigation of North America. I have all kinds of photos he took, and ones that were taken of him.

One of my favs is one looking-down from the Bridge onto the railings on all the lower decks; everything is covered in ice 4-6 inches thick (he told me they had teams that used hammers and shovels to remove it to keep from capsizing the ship).

Another of my favourite pics is one of him working on a helicopter engine in his shirtsleeves, all the sailors on the deck below huddling in parkas around these "smudge pots" - the warm air from the pots was so much, he had to shed his outer-garments to work on the aircraft.

They became "icelocked" about 13-miles from the Arctic Circle, and played baseball on the ice while waiting for another 'Breaker to come free them.
