Reminds me of the early seventies....

... outside this morning. -6 here in the "Hood". High today of 6 degrees with a twenty mile an hour wind. Brrr....... but just like it used to be back then. Buck up boys !  This cold will freeze the lakes solid and allow for early ice fishing.

Remember,"if you can't take the wintah, you don't deserve the summah ! "

Be a good day to be wading the beach........ bet you knees wouldn’t hurt lol probably wouldn’t feel much from the waste down. On a side note couple places are froze over enough to fish out my way.

Warning.....old man story....

I'm not sure if it was in the late 60's or early 70's, but we had a stretch of weather that never got above 0 (zero) during the day and  was in the -20 to -25 range every night. As I remember it, that lasted for 12 or 13 days straight. It didn't quite make a full two weeks. I think my father was glad when it finally warmed up so the furnace didn't run constantly.

Yeah, I took a walk this morning. It was -13. My eyelashes were caked up with ice when I got back and I had to take my glasses off because they fogged up and then immediately froze.

Great time to watch the Pats, mix up a nice beverage and tie up a dozen or so magic flies.  I'll go ice fishing once in awhile but with weather like this I'm dreaming of June top water action
