Fired up my gas auger along with a few other machines. Debating whether or not to upgrade to a newer snowmobile this year. The one I have catches fish though and, has alot of history to it! 8)

Was up Canada on vacation 2 weeks ago. Fishing sucked but had a great time swimming, boating,eating, and drinking.  u:)  Talked to a local guy who owns the cottage next to where we were staying for about 2 hours about icefishing on the lake. He showed me pictures of 6lb smallies from last year. He said the warm weather cut their season short also. He also told me they can't keep any bass from December 31st till opening day.

well, now they're changing the forcast. >:( they say the la-nina is going to be weak because of some warm water "blob" (their technical word for it) which is warming the la-nina waters. NWest is gonna see lots of snow. Ncentral will see less snow, lots of cold. NE is gonna see lots of cold and normal snow with the chance of some heavy snow storms. Pretty much winter as usual.  (*) (*) (*) (*) (*) Bring it!  &:
