Snow!

Post by bigbowman » Fri Jan 24, 2020 8:43 pm

Ok I’m fed up with snow and winter weather! I think tomorrow I’m going to go plow some shooting lanes in the snow at set my targets up for some shooting! I’m anxious to shoot my new Matrix 355! Lol

Brian, a friend of mine in Wisconsin has a brother that grew up there, then moved to Florida. The following year his brother called one day after Wisconsin got about 9" of snow immediately in front of a cold blast that shut many areas down for several days. He asks, do you have a snow shovel, or is it wore out? Hahaha. Later that spring, his brothers Florida area was hit with a hurricane, so Wisconsin brother calls and says, it's about 68 degrees here, nice breeze, perfect. I hear you got a little wind down there, do you still have a house? Hahaha.

I like it in the midwest! :wink:
You have cabin fever Brian, there, you're diagnosed! :lol: :lol:

Lake Michigan on the South end was at record heights this last summer, several launch sites were closed in early June through July.

.....I don't understand it all you guy B&M about the snow.... :eusa-think:

.....Me, I just love it....the more and higher it goes the better it makes me feel ....brings out the kid in me! :eusa-dance:


.....maybe it has to do with the fact that I was born in the "blizzard of '58",
.....and got hit with a snowstorm on my wedding day 2/2/85....
.....and we got snow on my birthday last year 2/18/19....

.....unfortunately we don't seem to get much anymore in The People's Republic of New Jersey....wish my wife was agreeable about moving to New Hampshire, Maine or Pennsy when I retire.....but NO!

.....I would not move to FL even if you gave me a house on the ocean or bay!

I wasn’t B&M about snow! All I said is that I’m going to plow some shooting lanes for my targets so I can go shoot my new bow! If winter bothered me then I wouldn’t be living in Wisconsin that’s for sure!
