    13 this morning. I guess I'll be tying fly' s or doing some reloading. The wife might appreciate some house cleaning! Hope you feel better Jim. I don't think Maggie will get her walk again today, she's sad, but posted up in front of the fireplace.

    Tim, you heading up to the tree farm to fish one of the lakes today? Ice fishing, I mean.

    Eleven degrees right now in Dash Pt. Was in Forks yesterday and we called it quits because of the 20 degrees and 15 MPH winds. Hypothermia to happen to three gray beards like us. Bummer. Even the fish are hunkering down.

    It was 3 when I got up at 5:30, 2 about 1/2 hr ago. I can see some sun shine, it will be warming right up to, maybe 18 today.
    I'm getting to old for this shit.

    Come to Montana. The sun is shining bright. It is supposed to get above zero today. In sure hope so. This cold shit is driving me nuts. I can tolerate zero because my truck will start then. But in these cold temps I don't even try.

    I checked the temps (from my phone, in safety of my warm house over here in WA) on our MT property early this morning ()..... - 26. that's 26 below not including wind chill. That just sounded wrong.

    A friend back home just sent me an e-mail referencing -25. He cordially invited Hank & I back. I believe we'll wait a couple months . . .

    What are you doing up Old Man at 11:30 pm when you should be in bed under the blankets where it is warm? Went outside this morning to exercise on my Gazelle and came back in 15 mins. later looking like Papa Smurf. Just too cold with the wind blowing. The cat and I fight to see who lays in front of the wood stove. :(

    18 degrees and snowing now...... I think I will brave the elements in the morning to hunt some fur! I would like to fish but I will take what mother nature hands me, and I'm tired of being inside! As for today I'll quote Rooster Cogburn and say (I bow out)

    I'm to old to get good sleep anymore. If I get up early in the morning I can sleep at night. But if I sleep in the next morning I'm screwed as far as sleep the next night.

    Nope; just prudent. I spent 30-years in your area, remember? And my blood is a lot thinner now, lol. Hell, I can remember ice fishing & snow-catting in -35; when it warmed-up to -15, it was like summer! Shot an elk one time that froze in-place; had to crawl underneath the thing to clean it. hauled it over to the cabin & used it as a yard ornament 'til spring. Folks used to stop by and tell me how real my sculpture looked . . . when they asked who the artist was, I said "God."
