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!

    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.
