Excited Over Snow

14 posts in this topic

I awoke, lifted myself up enough to peer over Leila's sleeping body to look at the clock radio. Now that right there bothers me. Makes no sense to have a clock in the bedroom you can't see without sitting up to see. Will I move it later on today, well its been like that since we moved upstairs to the new addition so probably not.

The clock said 2AM. Duh, thats too early to get up I thought to myself. I knew why I woke, I needed to snow blow the driveway before Leila went to work and before the kids got up but not at 2AM. I could though if I wanted to. I have lights on my 1969 Sears tractor. Thats crazy, I'd wake the neighbor, but wait he said he never sleeps.

I know that because I commented one day that I always see your TV on at all hours.

Hmm, now I'm wondering what the parking lot at the Town Hall is like with all the snow. Thats it, 3AM and I'm up.

Coffees on, puters on, and for the first time ever theres no lights on at the neighbors. He picked a fine time to break his 15 year record of not sleeping.

Best thing about this snow is it will keep the crotch rockets inthe garage a little longer.

The storm blew the ice on the big pond over to southshore. So Spring is still on track.

I'm guessing this should help water levels. The Black River near home is getting high and that was before the snow. I saw the big lake on my way to work yesterday. No ice but the waves looked like, "Victory at Sea."

Great deal for the tow trucks too. I was talking to the tow truck driver while he was getting my wife out of the ditch and he said there were 8 rollovers in this area that he heard of. Roads were just horrible.

My dads got about 8 inches of snow in uptown Superior and I've got about 13"-14" out here. We needed the moisture but Id rather of seen it in rain.

      Yes the Navonics phone app is as accurate as more expensive ones and you don't need to spend the extra $$ on another unit!  The app costs under $10!!

      Hopefully things will start to happen soon.  The next 15 days of overnight lows are starting to stay below freezing. Maybe a few test holes will have to happen for me next week!!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
