Better double down on the Karma Jason, it never did quit. It's 5:12 PM now and the snow is coming down hard.

The good news is that I began thawing a 14 pound turkey on Thursday for Sunday Dinner. I just said to Nancy "look at the bright side honey, It'll be just like Thanksgiving all over again. The turkey, the snow, just perfect huh"

All we can do is laugh

Holy sheet Ard! That's tough...but then again it is still May. I've seen snow fall like that right here in Missoula in early June. I never take for granted that I'll not see snow in my yard till June hits.

Hang in there man!

Why am I not? Sitting at my desk about 72 hours ago not feeling all that well. Not bad, just not 'well.' Then bolt for the bathroom.

Is there anything that hurts more than the 'dry heaves?' Still hurt like I've been gone over with a baseball bat. By someone who knew what to do .....

Hey Ard, as you know things generally have a way of averaging out over time. If that works out for you this year (and I hope it does), then think of all the "I'm catching too many fish!" threads that you'll be posting in the not-to-distant future.

And you know, it only takes a couple of good, sunny days on the water to make the Winter fade away.

Of course, I'm not going to tell you that it's 70 degrees here today; sunny, there are fish rising just off our float and I haven't seen snow since the last man-made that I skied on at the end of March.........................

Our high will be a cool 68 today...and to think I complained about that.

Is it going to be another high water year?
