Default WOW it's snowing bigtime.

3 days ago it was like 62 degrees here. Last night it started snowing and it's still snowing. Between 10pm and this morning there must 10-12 inches of snow on the ground.

I was out snow blowing the drive and these stupid people in cars and minivans are trying to get out. I watched 3 people get stuck in the road. One in a 2 wheel drive truck. What are these guys thinking.

After they finally got out, I jumped in the Hemi Dodge Ram 4x4 and drove to the shop to pick up a few things and then back home. Got to love the 4 wheel drive. Even with unplowed roads, it was easy in the Dodge.

Same here in the Quad Cities but it stopped snowing around 10:00...
Radar looks like Rockford to Chicago is getting beat on hard.
We got at least 8 inches but it's so windy the stuff is blowing arouond all ovber the place. All the schools are closed as well as most of the non-essential public buildings. What fun... My Jeep was literally buried since the driveway slopes down with a terrace next to it. The snow blew over the terrace and dumped the snow on the Jeep. It was pretty funny, you could not even see that there was a vehicle there...

Good luck up there. Looks like you're getting more than we did.

Well, it's going to be 16 degrees tonight and 10 degrees tomorrow night. We're going to move stands tomorrow since the shotgunners are out and we're hog-tied. Daytime temps tomorrow are supposed to be 35 degrees.

Have fun in your 63 and 81 degree weather. We sure did less than a week ago. Things are intersting in the Midwest for sure.

Ice fishing... I love it. No ice here yet though and not even close. Might be before Christmas though the way the weather is shaping up. We've had a couple of sad ice fishing winters in a row now. I think it's time for a good one.

Fun is that what you call it. I'm kinda tramatized about getting on the ice. Back when I was about 17 I was rabbit hunting and was walking along on some ice when all of the sudden I was up to my waist. Yeah I thought the ice was thick enough I mean after all the dogs were running around on the ice with the rabbits. Needless to say all I could think about was what if I had been out a little farther. Took me quite awhile to get out but I can say one thing it taught me a very important lesson........................................I weigh more than a couple of dogs and a rabbit.

Man Hoosier that sucks, I could see how that could be tramatizing I fell through some Ice once to but it was only a foot deep creek. By the way dogs are a little more nimble on there feet too

Yeah, you have to be careful.
I always tell people where I am going to fish and if I move to a different pond I call somebody and tell them. I do try and fish with someone else though.

And it's more fun having company out there with you.

It's kind of weird having to keep beer in a cooler to prevent it from freezing as opposed to keeping it cold. Weird concept when you think about it.

I have a set of spiked hand grips around my neck. In case I break through I can pull myself out by using those grips. That never happened but you can't be too careful. I also have a survival whistle on the same lanyard.

Shotgunners out this weekend. Moved a couple of our stands yesterday. I think the temp hit 35. But by 10:00 last night the temp was like 15. It's supposed to only be 22 today and 6 tonight. We'll have ice to walk on a just a few days if the weather stays like that.

Same for me except I go with 3" and stay spaced out. 6-8 pretty much anything including sleds and atv's, 12 or more I drive my Jeep out there. I also stay away from river fishing since the currents are totally unpredictable so you never know when you are going to go from 8 inches to 1-1/2 inches... There is a harbor in Andalusia off the Mississippi river that has no current and it's a sweet crappie spot in the Winter. It's supposed to be really cold every night this week so I might ditch the bow one day this coming weekend and see what I can get through the ice. I have not been out there since the snow came last Thu/Fri. It's been cold enough that there just might be 3" or more ice... We'll see.
