That's about to happen to me. It's going to start to rain here tonight, and then turn to snow.

Bummer :( I hope you get all your equipment back. We had a tough winter in 96-97 that started with a big ice storm around Vets Day and then a blizzard buried my legholds. I recovered a bunch of them the next spring. Hope that doesn't happen to you.

We've got weather moving in tomorrow night.. Flash floods worry me. All our stuff by law has to be underwater initially. Probably a good plan ahead of yours getting everything pulled. I may regret not doing the same.

I pulled a few weeks ago. It's no use fighting Mother Nature. I wouldn't mind trying for some under ice beaver but all of the beaver ponds I know of are too far back in the mountain to hike in to check every day with working 10 hours day. I have a beaver up at NAFA that didn't sell anyway. Might as well let the population build up while the fur prices are low.

46 would be down right tropical here. Yep, that's a big snowstorm that's affecting a bunch of people. We're supposed to get hit with it tomorrow night into Monday. Calling for about a foot of snow here.

We have yoyo weather, hot -cold, up and down, I've seen 65 rise in one day and 78 drop. Gulf air stream and Rocky Mt. air stream meet about a hundred miles west of me and which ever is stronger wins. Some years it'll freeze from Dec to late Feb and some years it'll be warm all up til Mar then turn cold and snow. Ground hasn't froze at all this winter but it's been wet since mid Nov.
Need three changes of clothes in the truck at all times.
