Default -5 to 0*

That's the forecast high temp range for tomorrow in my frozen neck of the world. Oye!

It was 5* this morning and the real cold air hasn't moved in yet. At least we don't have much wind in my part of Montana...Great Falls, Butte, anywhere E of the divide, yikes.

It's time for books, bad TV, fly tying, etc. What do you do when it's too cold to go outside?

You're just showing off, since you're in the banana belt...

-10 this morning.. cold comes in tonight I think

I just ordered a bunch of hooks from Allen, picked up some stuff at the local store on Black Friday specials.. nymphs: BWOs PMD and Little Sallies - is my
plan

Looking for a window, and we'll pick up the tree - so it can have a day or 2 to defrost in the garage

We are in the same boat down here in Pinedale, WY, tonight's low is forecast to be -14 degrees and tomorrow's -16 degrees. Ard can take this cold wx back up to Alaska anytime now (he is probably in a heat wave)!

We don't often get the cold in the mid Atlantic that you guys get. It might get down to zero occasionally, but not often. The western part of MD, in the mountains get the cold, but not so much here where I live. The water keeps the temps at bay I think. I believe it got to about 60 yesterday, but today's a bit colder, in the 40's. Jan. & Feb is when he get the colder air!

I think if it got that cold here often, I would have to spend a lot of time tying flies or keeping the wife warm!

Unhappy Re: -5 to 0*

'Quite your bit chin Fred.' Bottomed out at 15 here this AM, tad colder tomorrow morning. This little sign (-x) is not a good thing for fishing ... well ice fishing I'd guess.

Fred

Posts 1 and 2 got me thinking so I looked up Hamilton, MT, an area that I know fairly well. With the wind chill factor this is like living/growing up in 'Nowhere Manitoba,' Canada.

That's getting pretty cold John,

It's been in -0 numbers for a while here but today it's about 20* and it's great. Problem is it could sleet / rain Thursday night and with everything cold as it is that makes things real bad.

I have been writing material for my business web site and watching over some new advertising that I've started. I'm pretty stoked because in the past 4 days I've had over 800 new visitors on the site and many inquires about fishing 2014 So I'm not even noticing that it's cold yet.

I need to call today to see if the new freight sled will be done on time for the first cabin run which will be coming up before Christmas and get fuel ready to transport. Add to that, I'm looking at another boat for drift fishing and it'll be spring before I know it. There is so much I need done at the cabin that when I get there I'll have to hit it like Patton turning The Third around.

I have a book to read that I promised a review on and must get to that soon also................ hope it don't rain

Ard, it's obvious that you are well conditioned for the long winters. I'm sure that having a lot of things on a "big to do list" is key to not going nuts up there.

Congrats on all the traffic to your site, only one of those hits is mine...so you're doing well! Btw: my wife finally wants to start a vacation fund so we can take a family trip one of these years and she knows that Alaska is at the top of my list. I wonder if next July is too much to hope for?

For the rest of you fly tyers: The guys at Tightline Video posted a new pattern, it's so simple and great that I wonder how it took so long for me to find it. I love it and am really itching to get my vise back out.

Hi Larry & All.
Just to let you know it's supposed to be Summer over here The opposite to your seasons & it's only about 74 Degrees F inside however we have had a few warm days around 86 Degees F.
While you guys are inside Tying Flies I'll think of you when I'm Fishing.

I haven't checked The Weather in Wasilla as I think Ard would be really Snowed in.
