Oh the weather.... I asked Clint to give a weather post and I'm glad to revisit his thread.
It seems these days a weather event, no matter how big or small, makes for dramatic news.
Well yes, right now as I write has been our first below zero temperature of the winter and it's a major deal according to the box on the stand. Yes, freezing temperatures are truly deadly to our people and property but it seems like it's something that's never happened before.
Maybe we've been spoiled.
It's the days of sustained below zero that I'm accustomed to in the past that really made you scramble to maintain. Heck, it's supposed to be in the 40's in 2 days..
Ice fishing conditions have been pretty much terrible all season below the blue line ( adks) and even on the north western part of new York.
Back in the day, when I asked Clint to start a Salmon river weather thread, it wasn't about the sub zero temperatures of the area, we both fished together in, it was mostly about snow amounts and runoff conditions for fishing the river.
We've come a long ways but I'll take cold over snow, mud or heat.
Stay safe and warm.
Thanks for the ice dance Jack. 👍
