    Since I moved to western PA from CNY I have had to adjust, so to speak, to the "SEVERE weather" they advertise here in Pittsburgh...pfffft. :rolleyes: Last week we had 1/4 inch of snow and 3 inches of salt. Bunch of sissies.

    My bride shoveled 24 inches off her car in NY. Or so she says...I keep telling her it is "really cold here". ;)

    Ain’t the cold nor the amount of snow that’s bad... it’s the seemingly endless number of cloudy days! No worries, I’m movin soon!

    Monday was a good day to hunt, single degree temps, but wind under 10 mph. Saw two pairs of bedded sleeping(for the most part) coyote. One was mangy, they fidget and may see you. Shot all four, really liking the new suppressed Lilja 22-250 barrel. Head shoot the first of the pair, second only goes a short distance and stops.

    We went into a 10 hour freeze last night and early this morning here in North Florida. 9:45 am, 38* feels like 30*. My Chocolate Lab Penny is at my feet, I'm sitting in my recliner, drinking coffee and watching a little Fox News before I start my reloading for a couple -3 days of shooting this week.

    Life is good.

    Mid 30's this morning in Tallahassee this morning and I see lots of people wearing winter boots and down jackets. Makes me laugh.

    My wife and I are both farm kids. Her farm was very rural Iowa more so than ours. They lived on an east west road and sometimes it would be 3 to 4 weeks before the road was plowed but the plow did clean the north / south road. The only way they could get to school was for her, her sister and brother to go out to the barn saddle horses then ride to the neighbors farm on that north south road about a half mile away. They always took the biggest horses because their bellies would be dragging snow all the way, once they got there they put the horses in the barn, unsaddled and hopped the school bus. She actually had a lot of fun and loves horses.

    Got the winter wonderland treatment last night.
    Edit: all that snow up in the trees is coming down with a vengeance now. Lol

    Have visited Stanley and the Sawtooths twice; spectacular area. Visited the Hatchery, stayed at Redfish Lake Lodge, hiked up to Alpine Lake, horsebacked the trails above Stanley, and hiked Fish Hook Creek trail. Whitewater rafted the Payette River as well, but not sure I could take that cold water again.
    Hope to go again someday.
