.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Nice video of a Michigan spring, but it didn’t capture the full effect of snow AND wind!  

If any bees ventured out here today, they got blown over to the next County, or into Canada….

The historic average high temperature on this date is 56F.  We didn't get there.

Sure. The best fishing of the year was about 3 weeks ago, when steelhead, walleye and black horse suckers are all up spawning. The walleye are out of season so they have to be released, but fun to catch. The suckers in the spring actually eat pretty good if you score the meat every 1/4 inch down to the skin. Or can them. Steelhead are great fun to catch and eat pretty good too. Have JP bring up some blackened seasoning, cause I think they eat the best blackened.

Also bring all the down and/or woolen clothes you have. It is still dang cold out then.

The fall, mid September to mid October is when the salmon run and that is fun too, but they are dying and are really concerned with getting their one piece of tail in their lifetime, rather than fighting the other person at the end of the line. I am getting soft hearted and hardly fish them anymore, not wanting to disturb their last chance at some fun.  grin

I was more thinking of shaving my head and coming to FL and call myself Scott's older, fatter brother and helping with some swarms and cut-outs.  grin

Thx.

More snow for tomorrow, eh.
