This darn weather....
« on: February 07, 2017, 04:21:11 PM »
Left the house this morning expecting it to hit 45 today and it hovered at freezing all day with rain and freezing rain.   I was planning to get out again Thursday but it's not looking good. 

I checked the weather forecast because I heard there was a winter storm warning or something and to my surprise we're supposed to get up to 8 inches of snow wed into Thursday.  When did that change?  Last I saw we were only supposed to be cold on Thursday.

You're right, they don't know S***!  ::)

Kurt Aaron said the high temp today would be just after midnight (in the mid 40's). Then temps falling all day today. When I went to bed last night it was 28 degrees. When I got up this morning it was 30 and freezing rain. Back roads were horrible. Way to go Kurt!  ;)

And yes, this thing came out of nowhere yesterday! Now Accuweather is saying Pike Co. is in the 6-12" range!  :?

I was planning to take fri off to fish.........................................guess I gotta dig out the snowshoes now!

Be nice to get a good winter again.I'm off 3 days and this weather changes to snow after rain. Winter sucks anymore. Can't fish any of my spots I wanted to try. I'm not standing on 3" of ice after this weather. There's other spots to fish. But not what I wanted to do. But gotta make due I guess.

There was another tragedy here, not Oneida, where two guys on snowmobiles ran into open water and went down. I don't wanna read or hear about anymore of these incidents!!!! End of story!!!😎

CowDawg and I hit Prompton today from 9 to 2:30 (9 inches of milky and clear ice).  By the time we left, there was an inch of water over the lake and the water was running into the holes like the porcelain bowl. A lot of it was collecting against the shoreline where it's now going to lay with snow on top of it.  I thought about getting out to PL maybe Friday and Saturday but in light of things I may have to think twice about it.  This season looks like it's going to be short like the last one.
   With the sun getting stronger, not so cold temps, freezing and thawing, and now snow, this season has the potential to be really dangerous.

This snow is going to cover some holes over and hide dangerous spots. And kp thanks for your thoughts. I wanna get out sat somewhere. Was hoping for spots on the pack. Any body out fishing wed.

It's still cold enough for many of the lakes here in NE PA but this snow is gonna be hiding a lot of nasty stuff. Stick to the lakes you are personally sure of and be cautious at that.

ya know, I just checked the weather forcast again... it's in the low 20's and snowing like crazy. Tonight in the teens and tomorrow in the mid 20's. I'm betting the ice is gonna be great. Bring snowshoes and a spud just in case! And don't forget the smitty, yer gonna need it!
