Winter is that you?

Who thinks this map is true? I'm a bit skeptical im in central MN there saying 8-11 inches? I'm waiting till Thursday if it still looks like a decent amount the sleds are coming to the front of the shed... to ride around in the yard!:)  Sounds like it wouldn't be around for long. But the lows for weekend look like we may be really cooling down the lakes... we might even be making some ice!

We're down to a predicted @4" here in the Duluth area.  With the warm ground and the expected rain to start, I'm even wondering how much will actually accumulate out of this now.  

 

Still gonna get the blower and sleds fired up tomorrow just in case (they are still saying that there is a 50-75 mile deviation possible in the storm track, heavier snow is forecast to stay NW of Duluth)

Good Luck!!  

I just hope the rain that comes first doesnt decide to freeze down on the roads.

Junior has his first B-Ball tourney this weekend here in Duluth, so we will be in and out of the blinds both days.

Rain just turned over to snow here on top of the hill in Duluth.  Even had some Thundersnow a few minutes ago (pretty cool seeing lightening bolts thru driving snow showers!)

They have upped the forecast for Cloquet to 6-12 now, so we will see what we get.

Well it was true. I was stuck in my buddies cabin for two days up by Outing MN Deer Hunting with no power and only a fire place for heat and there was easy 12" or more inches where we were. Pretty cool to see the power guys come down the wire line checking for downed trees in a tracked John Deer 4 wheeler! They were going through any thing!

Wasn't all bad passed on 8 Doe's and a small spike Sunday morning before heading home at noon.

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
