What's It Like In Your Part Of The Woods?

Recommended Posts

I'm sitting here this morning looking out my window of our old country house that was built in 1914. In Iowa just 2 miles from the Minnesota border. I can hear the wind howling the tree branches are swaying it is raining. There are 3 Black Caped Chickadees feeding at the bird feeder. The weather report says it is supose to snow but so far this year I haven't seen any. As I recall last year at this time we already had enough snow to last all winter. So whats it like where you are?

It's been snowing here (Olivia) since about 6 a.m. I would guess about 4 inches now and the wind is a howling about 25-30 out of the N to NE. That usually means white out conditions around here, but the snow is a little wet now but I got a feeling it's gonna get real ugly here later today!! I'm thinking I'll be bugging out early today to make it back to Big Kandi. Oh well, shore fishing last night, shoveling snow tonight!! Gotta love Minnesota!!!!!

Just chilly and windy here! In extreme SE MN where I reside we aren't suppose to get any snow at all!! Haven't yet either!
I don't care if it snows as long as there is ice to walk on!!!!!!!!

Nasty, nasty, nasty & getting worse. The snow right now is the heaviest it's been all day.

I'm in Hopkins & there are a few cars in the ditches already.

Go slow & take your time going home tonight every. Stay Safe.

From the looks of it on the news last night some of you got hit pretty good yesterday. I still haven't gotten any snow here but I wouldn't have to drive to far to see it. I think I can wait. It will get here sooner or later.

I am ready to head south! 6 inches of snow and still snowing and blowing (Hawley, MN)! Nasty day yesterday and today. Heard Marshall got 20" so guess we are better off than they are. And they keep playing the song "let it snow" on the radio - sick people! HA!

We have a light dusting of snow this morning. It will be gone in a short time but this is the first for us.

Still snowing a little bit here off and on again today- sounds like it is going to do this most of the rest of the week. Roads are icy!!! And we have at least 7-8" in our yard. Went by Pelican Lake and the ice is forming on the east bank. Wish it was melting instead.

I can't beleive this weather. Its December 4th and the weather men said on the news this morning that it could get up to 60 degrees today. I guess it still is Fall but there should be snow on the ground by now. Although I do hope for a short winter and that the ice is out of the lakes by the end of March.

Well Mary we have snow but it is melting! 45 yesterday 40 today and I love it (sorry all you ice fishermen!) But we are hearing about a winter storm warning for tomorrow - sounds like freezing rain. That sounds slippery! I will take this kind of winter any day!

    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
