HUMMM ?!
I don't like the looks of the weather out my window.
We got another 10" of snow last few days, down here in town.
I'm guessing it will brake the snow fall record with well over 75"
SO FAR.Confused
Its being said we could hit 60* by Tuesday. We will see.
Are normal temp is around 50* this time of year it's been some time since I saw the thermometer in my back yard say 50*
I hate to say it BUT we Need two weeks of our famous winds to get the snow off and then DRY the roads. MUD= BAD DAY!
Foggy( means no wind) cold 18* full cloud cover right now, calling for more of the same all day. Forecast  warming with a chance of  light rain, till Thursday the maybe some more snow, Little wind  all week.
 
DANG!
 
I know Bear has snowshoes and wool bibs BUT the rest of you guys Keep in it mind.
 
I for one will be keeping my fingers crossed .
 
Now.
Food ! I was bragging about making a tail gate Lunch with Rabbit Burritos, well, I have one rabbit in the freezer...
Looks like it's going to have to be a Medley . I'll get with the boy and see what he has left, I'll toss in the one bunny and a half a crane and If he has something special like bear, sheep elk otherwise    It looks like deer.
I'll grind up some pork shoulder to help calm it down, but there is a plan "B".
 
GOOD NEWS!
More gophers then  have ever seen running around and the grass/wheat will be short so we , if we can get to them, can See them well.

I copied your pic and drew a crosshair on that guy.

Carring my snowshoes in a vehicle has not been lucky....it atracts mulie does, and it is tough to press the brake with the cedar snowshoes on both feet.

Can't wait!


Do the gophers have sex in the snow????

Better pack rain gear and MUD boots sounds like.
Checked out the DOT cams in MT along hwys east-west and still snow nearly everyone of them dated 4/8/18

Thanks for the MT weather updates....first thing about the pic from d.....No Visible Snow! 
Now the question is..... how wet is the landscape from the recent snow melts? 
Do the gophers need to be wearing life vests to stay afloat????Ermm

different tack now....will we be anywhere we will need state land use permits?  If so I want the cheap one that Bear gets!Big smile

You need to check off the box on the form that says:    "very good looking dude".

Not everyone qualifies!
