Spring will just not..... SPRING!!

144 posts in this topic

Have you heard that we up north here are under a Winter Storm Warning tomorrow through Tuesday? Here's a quote from the NWS:

Quote:
TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 6 TO 12 INCHES ARE

POSSIBLE ACROSS ITASCA...CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN SAINT

LOUIS...CARLTON... PINE... DOUGLAS...BURNETT AND WASHBURN

COUNTIES BY WEDNESDAY MORNING.

Are any of you as tired of winter as I am? crymad

Alright, I'll stop complaining (but I refuse to shovel any of this stuff)!

What was everyone up to this weekend? I've been working all weekend (gasp! shock!) but I also got to head up to Two Harbors last night for my mom's and sister's birthday party so I got to squeeze a little bit of fun!

I'm hoping that they've made a very catastrophic mistake on forecasting this one Charley!! smile

My sister used to live in Tucson. We'd visit her over Spring break and jump in her apt. building's pool while all her neighbors thought we were nuts because it was a cold day at 62 degrees!! They were still wearing their "winter" coats for goodness sakes! How could we be swimming in such weather?! gringrin

I am tired of this too!!!! I spent today cleaning my sister and her bf's house, it's going on the market tomorrow. And the allergies I am now dealing with would be so much better if they were from being outside, not dust we kicked up all day inside frown. Oh well, all good things come to those who wait, right? We will just appreciate spring more when it actually gets here!

I went down to Buffalo to the state conference for Let's Go Fishing With Seniors, learned a ton of things and had a blast. Today I spent the whole day working on our local chapters HSOforum which will be up and running by tomorrow night. I got up today, turned on the computer, heard my weatherbug squeaking and read about the weather and wanted to just crawl back in bed.

Lisa, it's all my fault. I'm sorry. I took the plows off the work trucks a couple days ago. My bad, I should have known better.

If it makes you feel any better, down here on the prairie we're looking at a foot of snow and 40 MPH winds the next couple of days.

Snow and wind, welcome to the prairie.

No problem with the snow...I'll just roll over in bed, or have another cup on coffee, and wait it out. But with the grandkids on spring break, it could get a little nicer.

BG...it's my fault.....we put the sleds in storage and got out the bikes for the little ones. laughgrincrazy

I think I would be changing that date Big Guy. Could be a little bit of a rough trip.

ULT I like your thinking.

Lisa people were golfing yesterday down here. I had a fire and cooked up some perch and Northern last nite outside.

The only bad thing is that I am supposed to donate blood tomorrow. I hope I can make it. Otherwise, I'll be thinking of you poor guys driving to work. grin

So I guess that while I am cleaning the garage today, I better not put away the shovels!! crazy

glenn - if you take hwy 23 to sioux falls, you will be just a few miles from my place when you cruise past Cottonwood.

We've been downgraded to a winter weather advisory here. We're supposed to be getting more rain than other places. That'll cut down on the snow totals, but hopefully that won't mean ice.

Yes, I know some of the Matthys family. What is your aunt's name? Does she have any siblings in the area still?

Personally, I would postpone the trip. We are supposed to have sustained winds up to 30 mph tomorrow.

    • Nah....walleyes would be hard-line Republicans;  conservative with little or no imagination, terrified of doing something new or different or pushing ahead with anything not tried before. Show me a 6-pound walleye and I'll show you Barry Goldwater with scales  or Ronald Reagan when he was not napping. PF is right, catching a walleye,  even a nice big fat one, is about as exciting as a naked tussle with Rosie O'Donnell or dragging a bag of seaweed into your boat. We used to catch some really big ones in MT and after a bit we learned that the big perch fought better and were way more tasty!  No kidding, those perch....12-15" were way better eating.  But then we were catching them from cold clear water. But if you are really new to fishing and don't possess a lot of skill by all means become a walleye fisherman-anybody can do it.
    • Well it's "Throw Down" time! For years I have kept a bag of sunflower seeds in the cup holder of my SUV to nibble on as I ride along. In the last few weeks since about the last weekend up north Deer hunting I would come in and think, man I really down some seeds, that was a pretty new bag? Then checking my oil one day noticed some empties under the hood!  Um, someone's having a party? Went to pick up my Deer at the butcher today and again found the new bag almost empty! Checked back seat floor and found a few sprinkles on the floor! That's it, don't mind the little guy along for a ride but don't touch my seeds! Thought about setting up the trail cam to plan some strategy, but just went with the blind two trap set front and back seat floor. Report when I get some results!
    • Read it again grasshopper, I never said any such thing.     Pence LOST jobs, Johnson gained jobs and the money didn't come out of revenue that was already being produced. Johnson's money came out of NEW tax revenue that would have never been earned if they didn't do the deal.   I don't know what that quote is you posted but I never said any of that.
    • Catching a walleye is about as exciting as reeling in a bath towel. Not sure how that justifies being an elitist. Bullheads put up a better fight.    I always considered walleyes to be the liberals of the fish world. 
    • When was the last time? 1835? That was the last time the national debt was paid off.     How would you know that? We've never taken a trillion dollars off the debt EVER.      
    • Lo, many years ago I tried something similar to deal with feral cats at a house that I was renting.   (next door neighbor fed them, and they would come in our garage or climb up under the hood of our cars.)   Covered a piece of cardboard with aluminum foil and wired it to one side of a 700 volt power transformer.  Other side was wired to a half open can of sardines insulated from the foil by a thin layer of plastic.   Primary went to line power.   No cat touched the sardines so long as the electricity was on (several days).   When I turned it off to see what would happen, they ate everything they could get out of the can in a short time.   I hope mice aren't as sensitive or smart. 
    • Pence is governor of Indiana.   Johnson was governor of New Mexico.   Why do you claim Johnson's deal was local, and Pence's was not?   Pence kept actual jobs, Johnson was chasing hypothetical jobs.   Pence benefited residents of his state.  Johnson benefited folks coming in from out of state...     
    • I would avoid one with a touch screen and stick with buttons.  You cannot work a touch screen with gloves on.  I guess it depends if you where gloves.  I have one of each and my Garmin with buttons is the one that gets used.
    • With any luck, we will get out of the debt issue with a period of moderate inflation, just like we did the last time.  5% inflation takes a trillion dollars a year off the debt.   Add 3-4 percent constant dollar growth, and in under a decade the ratio of debt to GDP is cut in half, even allowing for some deficits along the way.   Janet Yellen has already signaled she is willing and ready to let the economy run "hot", ie inflation exceeding the 2% target.     The trick, of course, is to pull it off without anything blowing up.     Now all that remains is to make it happen.
