36 degrees and rain here this morning. It has been raining pretty constantly for the past 60 hours and it doesn't look like it's letting up until tomorrow. Everything is waterlogged & flooded.

I've worked about 80 hours over the past 7 days strait & I've so far avoided the flu that is making it's way through the family so my plans today are to stay warm, dry and catch up on sleep :)

I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

Good Morning all you Northern Hemispherians

In my little part of Down Under it's just past 10pm, after a bright, warm and sunny Autumn day. Here's some photos I took this arvo:

The Troopie - not mine, I run a Land Cruiser FJ40 and dislike anything with power steering


The view.


The reason for being out there - an old plane crash site with a story behind it...


Story is the pilot was a WWI fighter ace - I mean a bonafide ace over the trenches of France - Distinguished Flying Cross and all. When WWII broke out, he reupped as a 40 year old and was given an instructor's slot. This particular day he was part of a ferry flight of 5 aircraft travelling from Laverton in Victoria to Evans Head in northern NSW. As they were flying over some particularly wild and wooly terrain after dusk, the weather closed in and our WWI ace lost visual contact with the rest of the aircraft in the flight. No problem - he'd run on instruments and make his own way on a direct bearing to their refueling stop. Soon after, he began to have engine trouble and couldn't maintain altitude. With no flat terrain in sight and He slid back the canopy and bailed out. He popped his chute too early and it snagged on the tailplane. He went in with the aircraft. You know those days where nothing seems to go right He had one and it killed him. Three days later, search teams found the wreckage with the remains of our WWI ace nearby. Even today you can see the big impact crater - nothing grows there. You can just make out a path of old damaged timber where the plane came through the trees. If you look in the photo above you'll see the big chunk of wreckage in the top centre of the frame - that's the section just forward of the tailplane. Our WWI ace left behind a wife and 2 children. I have visited his grave in Sydney's Rookwood cemetery and paid my respects.
Don't kill unless for the pot. Don't fell a green tree for a pole if there are dry poles nearby. Study the bush, learn to read its secrets; watch the mason fly building and go to the ant for another lesson... then you'll realise the bush is your friend.

That is some view there Buzzacott.

Well it is already 75 degrees and climbing fast. I went for a morning walk because I thought it would be cool after the good evening showers we had last night, WRONG!

Wow Buzz, thats beautiful country there!   Thank you for sharing the Fighters story.   I even read it to my hubby. :) 
 
I'm not even going to say what color it is outside this morning.   But if you need a hint.. its the same color I'm typing on.... 
 
I do feel really sorry for the birds out there today so I'm going to make up a big batch of goodies for the birdfeeder (upside down DISH thingy).

8 degree this morning, calm, overcast moved in after it cleared off last night.  50% chance of snow showers today then it tapers down to 20% tonight.  A little melting went on yesterday but now its frozen solid again.

That Mora I got from Nick sure makes a good ice chipper to get the surface ice off of the cats water dish in the barn and for cutting bale twine when we feed.  I wear it on a long nylon thong over one shoulder and it works well when you have a lot of clothing on.

Stan, how many inches of snow did you end up getting?
 
I would say we are at the six inch mark...

Great story Buzz, thanks.

It's -7 C here today (19 F?), bright and sunny.  Snow is melting - slowly! :thumbsup: - and it promises to be a lovely day!

All that is needed is for me to get off the 'putey and start work! :)

I would guess about 14" here.  There wasn't much wind so the places I measured were all either side of that.

Around 30* F with around 1" of snow overnight.
We're suppose to get up to 3" of snow today with the temps hovering around freezing all day.

It looks like its heading your way WW... More snow and cold temps for you :lol:

I just read that on the NOA page..    5-8 for us and 12+ for Angerlands area..   yeesh.  But severe storms in the central USA...   
 
I do beleive we still have towns in southern Mn with out power from the last storm.   brrr.

We had some 3-day outages around here from downed power lines, but just north of us across the river in SD there were 220+ power POLES down!   Those will take a little longer to replace. ???

That will keep the Power Co. Busy. wow.    My sister in LeMars said she's never experienced so much ice before.   I did once.. took me an hour to chisel my van door open to get something I left in there over night.   And the sounds of ice falling all day was really creepy.
 
Up here.. if ice took out the powerpoles of our line to this place I'd be in trouble.  Three of the poles are in the slough.  And right now its too soft under the snow for the big trucks to get in there and not sink.  I'd rather have the snow.

A high of 75 yesterday, 62 as of this post today with a light drizzle.
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

We were on the north end of this storm.  Got two inches, no wind.  That's fine, we will take all we can get.  They were calling for 7 to 12" though and that would have been much better.  It was 28 degrees at 7:00 AM and is 40 degrees as I write this at 10:15 AM.   ???

We were 26 degrees with a stiff wind out of the northwest this morning.  Now is 41 degrees with the same stiff wind and we are loving the moisture.  Its muddy.

30 degrees this AM and overcast.  Spitting rain but not enough to do anything but get the windows wet.  This is the best week we have had moisture wise since 2011.  Its muddy and cold and you plan your trips by going when the backroads are frozen but I love it.

Left east Tennessee this morning about 0830 in the rain and drove towards Columbia, SC (home) in the rain until I hit SC.  Driving 200 miles in the rain sucks, but driving through the rain in the mountains really sucks.  Made it home where the rain finally caught up an hour or so later and lost electricity for a couple of hours.  No matter, I was home and get to sleep in my own bed tonight with the love of my life after a week away.  And my tomato plants I put in the ground a couple weeks ago already have blooms and have grown nearly a foot in the last week!  Life is good.

At 4:30 this morning it was 30 degrees and overcast.  At 5;30  I was sitting by the river east of my place looking for turkeys.  After three hours and hearing only one gobble I packed up and came home to thaw my feet out.  It snowed for about an hour during this time although it was pretty light.  There are quite a number of whitetail deer in the bottoms.  Today I saw about fifty or so.  There was also a group of about twenty mule deer which we don't see to often in this area of the river.

Its real muddy and that is real good.   :D

Snowing this AM and about five inches accumulated overnight.  Its 30 degrees and that is supposed to be the high for today.  It comes at a good time, looks to be wet, and we need all we can get.  The turkeys don't like it much.  Not a gobble this morning.

We got around 3" overnight with the low this morning around 17* F. The high today is suppose to be in the low to mid 30's.

Temps are dropping, more snow is coming in soon. 
 
I sure hope this late winter will do some killin' on the woodticks and mosquitoes.   I do worry this isnt doing well for the frogs.   Our pond is quite dry where they should be hibernating...    And the frog pop. has been dropping quite a bit in the last few years.

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

27*, overcast, 3-4" snow last night, winds 20-25 mph today.  Record low temperature last night, but close to 80* by the weekend.     :welcome: to Nebraska, the state with 2 seasons. :shrug:

20* this morning, calm, and blue sky.  Yesterdays snow melted a bit yesterday afternoon and today should put it into the ground pretty well.  Reservoir overflow box is letting a lot of water out and the ground overflow is starting to ease over the bank.  That is a good thing.
