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!

    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
