    Default $#%#@^& weather

    I've been working my butt off getting my bow ready. Tore it down to the bare riser, put it all back together, new rest, new tied string nocks, new d-loop.... Got it sighted in last night. Went out this morning to double check. Half dozen or so deer never blinked until I went to pull arrows. Yeah, kind of early, but dang! Overcast! Humidity! Lord! Checks done I figured to hit the 3D course....and it's misting....As I type, 9:03 am, it's still dang overcast and by the weather channel maybe outright rain. Maybe tomorrow...Might slip over to the club for the Club meeting....

    Hoping that you catch a break in the weather Sonny, but the Weather Channel is usually pretty acurate. I have the NOAA site on my toolbar, which tells me that a couple of ballgames will be postponed, already cancelled one last night. Poured all afternoon!

    Got to the club around 10 am and the temp started dropping and then breeze right out of the North. It was warm enough early I wore shorts, t-shirt and a light vest to sight in. And I began sweating as soon as I was in the house. Right now the furnace running!!!!

    Supposed to be...51 degrees tomorrow if it doesn't snow.......

    4/14/14....Nice date....IF IT WASN'T SNOWING! Yeah, around 7 this morning, 41 degrees, temperature dropping all day. Now down to 34 degrees and snow flakes big enough at times to blast with a shotgun. Snow beginning to build on the rails of our deck....

    I could have used the moon roof and windows on the way home, but didn't want wind noise.LOL I do like my new toy.....

    Oh yeah, keep in mind that I'm still used to below zero and single digit temps.
