    Here I sit in the back yard in a tee shirt and shorts. It's in the 90's here at noon. Watching the butterflies flit around the cashew trees. I'm smoking a M&M cob with "Trout Stream" in it. Trout stream in a cob helps to make life tolerable. What is it like in your back yard today?

    No snow, but it is around 30F, which for here might as well be -30.

    8 degrees (F), completely covered with 4 inches of snow and ice.

    But, yes, the sun is out and the house is warm. Doing okay.

    Raw, windy, temperature low and headed down. Later next week, after a brush with zero F, we're
    headed up to unseasonably warm. That's the way it is here. Some days in February are like spring.
    I grew up in Chicago, and in those days, by the middle of February, you were no longer waiting for
    spring. You were in eternal ice with occasional slush. The lengthening daylight almost missed your
    notice. It was the Russian steppes. Presently, I'm in NC.

    50 degrees with the damn sun shining and I can't make up my mind whether to go duck hunting or fishing in the gulf this weekend! Life is so full of these difficult choices.

    Its 29 degrees outside, not counting the wind chill. I about to tear my back yard up with some snowmobiles. I have 22 acres so I got plenty to ride on.

    It's a little cool here in Wisconsin!

    As an example to others, and not that I care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when asleep, and never to refrain from smoking when awake.

    "Saint where do you live you can duck hunt this time of year and how do I get there? Really good looking lab by the way! Mine is getting cabin fever right now. Keeps running from the gun cabinet to the door poor guy! "

    South central Louisiana. Our duck season goes until Jan 26th and Goose until Feb 2nd. It has been one of the best duck & goose seasons in years. I will probably make 2 or 3 more hunts before the end of the season. The freeze above us has really brought the birds down. My chest freezer is full with fowl and in need of Speckled Trout, Redfish and Flounder. Down here, we don't go fishing, we go catching

    There is an really good outfitter in N Louisiana that is very reasonably priced ($300 a day). They are limiting everyday on ducks and geese. johnnywink.com
    They are first class!

    No gator issues once the temp drops below 55. Besides, these are rice and flooded corn fields, no gators. Gators like deep canals where they can escape danger or marsh where they can hide.

    Chicagoland. -6 when I went to work today. Now 15. Should stay around there for a while. At least the snow stopped.

    Anyone else laughing at the ship caught in the ice while researching global warming?

    Almost 60 degrees this afternoon, so I sat out with a bowl of H&H Victorian Stroll... Slight overcast, and the temperature is expected to drop into the 20s overnight. Winter in Colorado.

    The high was 76 deg F, and sunny, although it felt warmer than that to me today. Wore a t-shirt all day, and smoked some Dunhill Flake at sunset on my front porch. I am not complaining.

    Saw a lot of images of the storms back East. I lived 36 years in NYC, and I do not miss that aspect.

    This thread reminds me of one of my favorite Tom Waits songs; Diamonds On My Windshield:

    "Diamonds on my windshield
    Tears from heaven
    Pullin' in town on the Interstate
    Pullin' a steel train in the rain

    Wind bites my cheek
    Through the wing
    Fast flyin' freeway drive
    It always makes me sing

    Wisconsin hiker with a cue-ball head
    Wishin' he's home in a Wiscosin bed
    Fifteen feet of snow in the East
    Colder than a well digger's ass"

    Up in Alberta, Canada the last line "Colder than a well digger's ass" unfortunately applies for about 6 months of the year:)

    I've hunted ducks with my retrievers for nearly 45 years and have never encountered an alligator. The less tourist hunters, the more migratory birds for us.

    There is a reason we are labled, "Sportman's Paridise".
