A non typical January day in New England.

Grilled Italian sausage, peppers and onions on the deck right around sunset. Shortsleeves shirt and slacks.

Temp 54* with the average high 20* cooler.

Global warming no doubt. Bring it on.

I was in Denver last week, where it was in the 60's, while here at home the low was 13 according to our dog lady. Just now getting up to 40's. Global warming, no doubt.

Yeah, supposed to be sunny and 40 here tomorrow. I afraid that when the cold comes, and it will, it'll be stuck here till the fourth of July.

Just wait until next week. The "pros" are calling for highs in the teens and lows below zero. Should be making some ice on the lakes then!

We're in the middle of an unusual weather pattern. All of our weather this year has rolled up along the East Coast and the Appalachians. So we get lots of wet and warmer than normal temps.
It is going to really suck when one of those warm, wet lows slides up out of the Carolinas and runs into a frigid Alberta Clipper.

Mid 70's and sunny all week; slight chance of rain on Friday. [You all knew I was going to jump into this thread, right?]

Justin,

I though you were looking for snow, to make money shoveling.

Do they have enough ice for the mansion fish houses (actually a cabin on ice) on Mille Lacs yet or not enough ice?

Noticed on the news the semi didn't do too well. That must have been quite a ride.

We have a couple of late dropping crab apples in our yard so we get lots of deer visiting. We seldom see bucks except during the rut which is usually over by mid December.

This morning we had a hot doe in the yard with two separate bucks "courting" her. One of which was probably 140 class P&Y. Does anyone know what factors affect the timing of estrus in deer? This is the warmest winter I can remember in almost 30 years and I'm thinking that's the reason for the extended rut.
