I'm from Michigan, but no school today!!  Blowing snow and temps below 10 degrees made the roads impossible to clear, and the temps made the salt useless!!
Some fishermen sit at home during the winter dreaming about fishing.  The real ones go out and do it.

Just left work - they let us out early because they're starting to close the roads around here.  So I guess I was half lucky.

Unfortunately my wife works at the same place I do and she said, "Oh good, now we can spend the afternoon together!"

I really wanted to get out on the ice this afternoon!  It being Valentine's Day I suppose that was wishful thinking though ...

Got lucky on the work and school front.  UVM closed at noon, but my professors had emailed me by 7:30 saying they were cancelling.  I work in one of the outpatient clinics in the hospital and most patients rescheduled yesterday so no work either.  Been napping, studying running the snowblower, napping (did I mention too, that I have been napping?).  My wife, on the other hand had to work today.  Picking her up at 8 tonight should be an adventure :blink:

The employment of effort, hard work, time, and energy put in locating fish will offend noone.

I got lucky last week.  A water main in town froze; so the school where I teach  didn't have water for a day.  We got the afternoon off, and I went fishing.

I'm self employed and work out of my house. :'(

I tried to convince my boss that the snow was too deep on the stairs, but he wasn't buying it. :'(

Maybe I should offer to take him ice fishing. ;)

It's just cool here...it's warmed up quite a bit compared to a week ago...this weekend we'll just be several degrees below average rather than 15.  I'm on a training course all this week and 4 days next week, so it's kind of like a holiday from work...overtime all day Sunday though, so fishing isn't likely to happen.

God grant me the Serenity to accept the size of the fish I catch,
the Courage not to fib about it,
and the Wisdom to know that no one would believe me anyway.

Yesterday, which was Monday Feb: 14th, I was going to School to get the bus started and warmed up when I got a call from my Secretary at 5:26am, Beth said that there was "NO School" today...

Hot Dog....So, I went out for Breakfast, Took extra long, Just Long enough so the wife would be gone, and came back home to get dressed up a bit, and went Fishing.

Went to Emmonds Lake...I saw them down there, but they just wouldn't bite..

Someones got to come up w/ a tool that'll make them bite your hook.
