Big warm up coming. It's already up to 17 at 8 AM Now they say we'll be in the 50s possibly on Monday. Dad nab it. We need ice for fishing. We're going Sunday come hell or high water. My buddy is hitting the ice today.

I thought it was cold when it was 8 degrees here the other night, until I talked to a guy from Michigan that told me it is not really cold until you hit 20 or 30 below. It made me say thank GodI am from the South. I thoughtI would add that the high for Monday is 70.

It's funny what peoples perception of cold is. Besides hunting, I work outdoors at times and now anything over 10 degrees is decent!

That is for sure. I went hunting when the windchill was -20 last week.....that was kinda cold[&:]

Well I'm heading out to bore some holes in the ice tomorrow morning to go fishing. It's going to be great with the temperatures rising above freezing. Promises to be up to 35-38 tomorrow with 6 inches of ice. No 4 wheeler ice but we can walk out.[8D] I will carry a rescue rope and wear my inflatable life vest. LOL

Time to hit the golf course this week. Going up to 62 in Central NY this week [:-]. About a 65 degree swing in a week. It's the end of the world.
