Free rain

16 posts in this topic

Free for the taking. I don't need it anymore.

I'm not able to work. Even on days when it's just drizzling, it's still too wet to do anything.

If you've got in-laws in other states where they're dry, send buckets this way, I'll be more than happy to pay for shipping.

This is getting rediculous.

LOL. They said on the news this morning that if the the precipitation from August through now fell in the winter, we'd have 15-18 feet of snow!!!

I've seen the sun 4 times in the last 4 weeks. Meanwhile I have a shed roof opened up that'll become a deck to my new second story walk out. Drought Smought.

It's been raining forever down here, but we need it badly. I'm sure the farmers arn't digging it, but the water in the Des Moines and Lime Creek is finally flowing again.

Duck hunting hasn't been so bad lately, either.

The last heavy rain in Superior flooded all the steam pits at the college. It's hard to make steam when the pipes are under water. Can't wait for round two...

Imagine trying to get to 40 / week, 1-2 acres + each...

Landscpaing guys aren't having too much fun either.

I can't even begin to imagine what it's like for the farmers... confused.gif

Let's see...went out for supper in the middle of October for the first time in 19 years. The guys are getting restless! Pretty much everyone has been idle since Sunday afternoon when it started raining. Still plenty of puddles around. The sunshine and the heat helped some today, but they are talking more showers for tomorrow. sigh...

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
