I am so sick of winter I could scream. We got about a 24 hour break yesterday when it was sunny and we hit 36 degrees which felt almost like summer. It was fantastic. Today we went right back into it again - high winds, snow and very cold. The 10 day forecast calls for temps to average 25-28 degrees below normal. We've had record breaking snowfall here in MI and it's going to take a lot of really, really warm spring days to get rid of all this snow. I daydream the evenings away by looking at past year's picts of Manitoba bear hunting and I've been shooting my good ol' MA almost every night in the basement. I have had ENOUGH winter! C'mon spring!

Saturday was a nice day here in SEMO. Spent the day in the yard cleaning up all of winter's mess. Back to 18 deg. wind chill today. Just came in from shooting my Widows. Had to quit as the foam target blocks froze like concrete! One finger froze & fell off & I won't say what else froze! Sure wish we had some hog hunting around here! Hey Chuck, know what you mean about daydreaming. I watch trad hunting DVDs, dream through the BW catalog & search out trad bowyers & related trad stuff on the trusty computer. Just got Glory Hogs 2 DVD. It's a goodern if you like watching trad bows go off. Feel like a boy with bad cabin fever. Could I really be this old? 66 yesterday. Maybe that's why I have things falling off?

Not looking real "spring like" here in West MI. Highs in the single digits and teens with below 0 lows. More lake effect snow for the week, starting tonight. UUUUUGGGGGHHHHH!!! 8~(

I'm ready to NOT have to move snow anymore. I'm running out of places to blow, plow and shovel it to.

I like winter. Especially when it snows & I can get to the woods. Snowy woods are magical places. They show me there are lots of deer left. Some of my best deer hunting has been in Dec.. I don't like below 0 wind chill or 0-20 temps. 30-32 is just fine. Spent too many years breaking ice cycles off my tree stands I guess.

Spring just took a hike here in SEMO! Raining ice down on us like there is no tomorrow. Must be global WARMING! It's coming from the direction of BW so I'm sure they are also getting it. They may not be able to make it to work tomorrow. Looks like I have already got about 1/2" & it's only 1:20pm. Sounds like bullets hitting the house. Need body armor to go out & shoot today! Don't believe I will. Need a new Widow to tune up in the garage.

Lots of arrows Andy Man. You've been busy! Currently 9 degrees here in West MI with an expected low of -8 tonight. We've broken the all time record for the amount of snow on the level for any year on March 1 with more to come this week. The weird thing is, it's staying light now til close to 7 PM (EST) and it just doesn't look or feel right in the evening.

Looks like those are going to be some nice looking arrows. Post a picture when you get them fletched. I've been fighting the urge to make up some wood. Haven't shot wood since 1967. Cabin fever gets me to thinking all kinds of things. Still pouring ice harder than ever on us here in SEMO. Been doing it constantly since 1:30pm & it's now 8:30. Tomorrow should be interesting with 3 " of snow predicted on top of the ice. Hope the power doesn't go out. Last big icing caused a power outage for 5 days.

I sure wish it would hurry up and get here. Last I heard we were at 112 inches for the season and more on the way. Even a few days above freezing or a break from shoveling would be welcome. My yard looks like it belongs on the Polar Ice Cap not Michican. Where's Al Gore's global warming when ya need it?

Old Al couldn't make any more money off global warming so he went back to creating a huge carbon footprint of his own. He thought so much of himself that all the cut backs he proposed didn't apply to him. We ended up with a lot of snow on a lot of ice & no temps high enough to melt any until the end of the week. Cabin fever is so bad I'm thinking of driving to BW to buy another bow! Better go take my temperature talking like that.
