Be sure you seal up the mag coil. Snow turns into water....(Don't ask me how I know this)

I lost my 3rd coil in a month this weekend. It was actually snowing at the time and I was about 7-miles from home. I learned my lesson, and now carry a spare at all times, I just got spooked since this one only lased about 3-days. I pulled the plug, and sure enough: no spark. Pulling off the mag-cover (which I sealed like a maniac with UltraCopper) expecting to find liquified-snowflakes. Lo and behold; the space was BONE DRY. That spooked me more since if the mag wasn't defective I figured maybe the CDI went south and caused it to blow and I don't carry a spare CDI. Well, the replacement is still working. Meh.
