Thought about going out and getting a tan today! It was -14F at 5:30am and got up to a sweltering 1 degree by 1pm!!
3++ ft of snow and ice in the yard, we had a few thaws early, and another 22..24" predicted for Weds.
Even my long legged Fox hound is getting tired of it.
Forget Coyote hunting. Rabbits are out because the snow is to deep to get to them. Snowshoes? Yep, they are useless also. We had 2.5ft last week in 2 storms. Even w/ my snowshoes I sink a foot each step. Well at least the Chestnut and hazelnut seedlings I planted this fall will have a cozy place for the winter. No F-ing trigger time!!!!
Ice fishing? Are you nuts!! I gave that up years ago. Why would anyone sit on a frozen lake in 1F and with the wind whipping across feels like -30F is beyond me. I think next week when it warms up to +10F I'll take a 91/30 out to the power lines, w/ snowshoes and play a little Winter War senerio. I may have a heart attack, but even my wife tells me I need to get out, shooting of course!
Can't wait for tonight (-21) and tomorrow(-5). Those are the highs....
