  1. Hey thanks Duff.Been called worse. If'n it makes ya feel any better, Mrs. Cheviot is half-Dutch.
  2. Goodbye my friend Maybe for forever Goodbye my friend The stars wait for me With a week off and the New Year’s noisemakers packed away once again, the scurs have dusted off the Weather Eye for another campaign. Will their 1st forecast of the New Year be wrought with warmth or just warm thoughts? Starting Wednesday, partly sunny and cold. Highs in the mid-single digits above zero with lows in the mid-single digits below zero. Thursday, partly sunny with highs in the low single digits above zero with lows in the single digits below zero. Partly sunny and warmer Friday with high
  3. We brought a case of Hackstein to a livestock show, put it in a "special" cooler a few years back and hid our normal supply. Even the beer zombies wouldn't touch it! Not a big whiskey guy but drink it sometimes when the mood strikes me. To me Scotch has always tasted like a postage stamp without the sweetness. Like my Crown & water when I'm too lazy to make a GT. Tincture (brandy) and cider works when I come in cold after chores at night. Works in the coffee sometimes in the morning too! A little JD on the rocks once in a while will tickle my gizzard just right. Touring the Ja
  4. Well, hopefully the ten was a reference to weeks. Otherwise she might be adopting a new son for you! Merry Christmas Bobby!
  5. You’re wearing out things that nobody wears More hate mail once again for the scurs and their vaunted Weather Eye. Will their Christmas forecast be met with more scorn and derision or will they deliver like The Magi? Starting Wednesday, mostly cloudy with a slight chance of snow. Highs in the low 30’s with lows in the upper teens. Yes, above zero. Thursday, sunny with highs in the low 30’s with lows in the low 20’s. Mostly sunny Friday with highs in the low 30’s and lows in the mid-teens. Christmas Eve Day, partly sunny with a modest chance of snow in the evening. Highs in the mid
  6. Best of luck dave! Hoping this time is the charm.
  7. Thanks Bobby! I gotta find some time tonight after chores to catch up on you and your whereabouts. Now that the holidays have come They can relax and watch the sun Rise above all of the beautiful things they've done. After this past week’s weather the scurs and the Weather Eye generated much hate mail. Will their performance this week be met with more approval or will they be waiting for the frozen eggs to melt off their house? Starting Wednesday, mostly sunny with highs in the mid-single digits above zero and lows near -10. Thursday, mostly sunny with highs in the
  8. I talked to the guys who measure the precip up at the meetings I recently attended. Asked them when they were having the party to celebrate. We were fortunate here. Plenty of rain but managed to escape several of the major poundings they got just 13 miles to the north. More on that here: This boat is blacked out like a city Awaiting bombers in the night While there were no 50 degree highs the scurs and their trusty Weather Eye still kept things above zero and largely above freezing. ? Starting Wednesday, partly sunny with a slight chance of snow. Highs in the low 20’s
  9. When it all comes down we will still come through in the long run With a high Monday of 50 the scurs and the Weather Eye more than delivered on some good weather. Have we seen the last of autumn or are we in for some Indian Winter? Starting Wednesday, cloudy with a moderate chance of rain and snow. Highs in the upper 30’s with lows in the low 30’s. Thursday, mostly cloudy with a slight chance of snow in the forenoon. Highs in the mid-30’s with lows in the upper 20’s. Cloudy Friday with decreasing clouds by evening. Highs in the mid-30’s with lows in the mid-20’s. Saturday, mostly
  10. I don't have it but we gave one to a friend as a gift. It's called "Birds of MN Field Guide-2nd Edition" by Stan Tekiela. Looked like something you might be interested in. Another one might be "Wild About MN Birds" by Adele Porter. Have not seen this one personally but might be worth a look. I have a couple Sibley's, a Peterson and a Birds of North America. As you say, they include a lot of stuff we don't routinely see although that's one of the reasons I have them.We see oddballs from time to time.
  11. I hear you knockin’ but you can’t come in The scurs and the Weather Eye delivered more good weather until Friday when we saw the first snow of the season. With Old Man Winter knocking will we be able to fend him off one more week or is winter finally here? Starting Wednesday, cloudy with a moderate chance of rain and snow in the forenoon. Highs in the mid-30’s with lows in the upper 20’s. Thanksgiving Day, mostly cloudy with a moderate chance of snow in the overnight. Highs in the mid-30’s and lows in the upper 20’s. Cloudy Friday becoming sunny in the afternoon. Highs in the mid-3
  12. Sounds like a plan Bobby. Had a couple Hamm's a few weeks back when we were cleaning out a buddy's cabin fridge and thought to myself, hey, I know somebody who drinks Hamm's.
  13. I'm goin' off the rails on a crazy train The dynamic duo of the scurs and the Weather Eye teamed up once again to bring us another outstanding week of above normal temperatures with no precipitation. Is this the week we get a taste of what Old Man Winter has in store or will it continue to amaze? Starting Wednesday, mostly sunny with highs in the upper 50’s and lows in the mid-40’s. Thursday, partly sunny with highs in the upper 50’s and lows in the mid-40’s. Mostly cloudy Friday with a good chance of rain changing to snow in the overnight. Highs in the low 50’s and lows in the upp
  14. Whew! Wow Bobby, you've been prolific as of late and I mean that in a positive way. Takes a while to catch up on the French trees, the Puddle Humper, Duncan and the rest but I made 'er. Sounds like you've got some pretty great friends. Hope you continue to keep us informed.
  15. You say you just want me to take you for a ride Thanks to the Weather Eye, the scurs are back on a lot of Christmas card lists after this last week’s weather. Will our good fortune continue or are we just waiting for the other shoe to drop? Starting Wednesday, sunny with highs in the upper 50’s and lows in the upper 30’s. Thursday, sunny with highs in the upper 50’s and lows in the upper 30’s. Sunny Friday with highs in the low 50’s and lows in the low 30’s. Saturday, sunny with highs in the low 50’s and lows in the low 40’s. Sunny on Sunday with highs in the mid-50’s with lows in
