    I take it your getting wind with the wet heavy snow?

    April 1 trout season opens here so this coming weekend it's time to get our fishing license, maybe head to the brook after work some night.

    Yes, some wind, but thank goodness the temps in the 30's and wet snow, it isn't blowing to bad. I am afraid it is going to get worse though, as the night temps drop. It has been a white out since about 3 this afternoon just from the rate of snow fall.

    Yep, And what bothers me is we already have about what they predicted and it looks like a lot more to come. We will be fine. We have done it before. I just sent a text to all my personnel reminding them that when the alarm sounds to drive slowly and safely......We can't make a difference if we don't get there.

    It looks like you had a nice day, did you stack or cut? Nice pile of wood in the background.

    I gotta ask. What is the significance of "loon"? Favorite bird? Just curious.

    Ah. Me, I like fishing(but don't have time to go) and I have a Polish last name. I know, I panicked picking an screen name.


    I don't mean to hijack the thread, but here is a pic of a loon head that I carved many years ago for a carving competition in Connecticut in '95. I also have two full sized loons that I made back in those days.
