It sure does Mac! I'm off for a few days starting Wednesday. Was hoping to do some stream fishing.

Out of the question! Have a new John Deere being delivered on Wednesday. I'll definitely have to mow. Still can't get the back parts of my house and the one next door. Just plain wet!

Only plus is, my gardens are loving it.

Speaking of Indy...    In something like the last 30 days, we have only had one stretch of 48 hours without some form
of precipitation. We have been fortunate enough to miss the major downpours, but the showers won't let up.  My yards
are all overgrown but worse.  I haven't seen a planted field yet and its approaching mid May...

fish on,

Well, I did my part for the economy over the weekend. Lowe's and Wayside ( a big garden center across the road from Lowes) were jamb packed with people on Saturday. Probably not so much yesterday.

We also stopped at Lowes and picked up some plants along with a few other things ,

I mowed before leaving home for Florida.
Needed it BAD.
And it was a swamp.
Forget bagging the clippings.
Can't wait to see what it looks like when I get home.
I asked Jeff to run the mower if he gets a break in the weather enough.

Neighbor out at the lake mowed my place out there.
He said it was nutz.
He also said forget about my trailer getting put back into place while I'm away.
The lawn across from my place that the tractor needs to back my place in because it's so long is flooded.
My neighbor said it looks like Lake Erie 2.


Crazy.
I hope it breaks soon.
Looks like we need 2-3 weeks of dry sunny weather to get things dried out.
Some wind will help too.

Stopped at a local garden center Sunday with the wife to pick up some flowers for the porch, we were the only customers. The place is usually jamb packed on Mothers Day. This weather does blow!

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When mother nature gives you rain, wear a rain jacket.   ;)

I am married with a 2 year old and a full time job. There is no time to be picky as to when I can enjoy the outdoors. If I waited for perfect weather I would be out twice a year.  I find my best option for that day, drop my shoulder pads and hit her as hard as I can (no helmet to helmet). For what its worth, its the crappy days that make me enjoy the outdoors even more.

At least the cold wet weather is keeping me from mowing the lawn....I'll do that after I come back from striper fishing.

We are supposed to get snow up in the hills of Vermont the next couple of nights.

Saturday it was beautiful out.  I fly fished most of the day.  Did well in the morning until all the orvis crowd woke up and then it was pure madness people wise.

Sunday in the rain...nearly 21 miles of trout management area...empty!

I pray that every year for opening day it rains and so far it has for the last 4 or 5 years. Keeps all the rift raft at home and gives me more area to fish...... in peace.

John & Jon, I know you guys get it. Doesn't matter if your chasing trout with a long rod or a 10 pointer with a rifle. If you prepare for the weather than comfort is owned by you.
