Mornin’ all, no snow here just ice. Thankfully not as bad as predicted. North of us got hit pretty hard.

Morning folks,

Really mixed weather over the weekend which made hunting difficult. Changing every few minutes with wind speed, rain, sun, wind direction. Saw quite a few fallow deer, could not get near them though. Also I missed a fox! (though it was more of a shot in hope than expectation).

Scrummy

Got up at 5:30 and the power promptly went out. 💩 Wind is at least 30+.

Morning Gents!  Woke up to minor flooding headed toward bigger flooding as it will rain all day...
Saturday was lovely and hit almost 80F which was like a sauna.... I confess to hiding indoors after spending enough time outside in the yard to get thoroughly over heated...

Looks like there is little hope for an enjoyable spring and looks like we'll jump straight into summer.

Stay dry!!! Ouch

The winds finally dropped below 15 mph. During the past week recorded winds over 45 mph 8 times on 3 days at the house. Highest was 52 mph. My Anemometer is only 7 feet off the ground rather than the preferred 20 foot height. Temperature dropped down to 28* this morning. Global warming my ass.
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

Mornin gents

Snowing right now, nothing serious since it's above freezing, but we're still in the 30s. It was sunny and in the high 70s Friday. Saturday started with rain, but stopped early and stayed in the 60s, until 2100hrs. when it started raining and rained until Sunday afternoon and the temps fell to the low 40s and high 30s. As one friend of mine said at the MG shoot, "If I wasn't already here, I wouldn't have come". I didn't shoot on Sunday because of the weather.
I had a good time at the shoot. I must have, I came home every night tired and sore, and I spent myself into poverty. I do think I saw Scrmmy's wife on the line shooting a Mk. I Vickers SaturdayWink For the conditions to have been as bad as they were with all the post flooding and the rain, it was a good shoot.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

You may well have done BF! She's claiming to be in San Antonio but frankly I have no way of checking...

;)

(Actually Saturday she'll have still been in the air...)

Jeez Skip Don't you ever sleep??? Wink

I slept in front of the boobtube last night... not by choice mind you, it's just where I conked out. Ouch I awoke with my nose resting on the TV table about 3:30am sore ans stiff from eyebrows down.  it's amazing how sleeping in an unfamiliar position does that to a person...

So anyway, I knew better than to try and go back to sleep so i showered, shaved and headed on into the hell hole... er  I mean work. Embarrassed  Now I'm sitting here cussing the cafeteria staff who think its funny to ration the coffee creamer at all the remote coffee stations here....  BITTER! just what I needed! Confused

It was quite nippy as the temps have been hanging right at freezing overnight.  I need more HEAT!!! Just turn up the heat slowly so I won't jump out of the pot too soon!Tongue
