Warmest it's been in a while, all the way up to 21 today. They called for 3 to 5 inches of snow today but we got more like 8 to 10 inches. I've been plowing snow all day.

Did you get those crappie through the ice is the pond still open Chief? All ponds and lakes are frozen around here.

This is the warmest morning we've had in a while, It's 11 degrees this morning.

Have a great day everyone. :D

The good news is that the fridged temperatures have left, 26 degrees this morning. But the bad news is we are supposed to get a bunch of snow today. Even more bad news is the recent cold temperatures heaved the ramp up on the shed and I can't get the door open to get to the ATV to plow the snow that is coming. :roll:

Have a great day everyone. :D
