No icefishing here with these temps. Bleah. It's funny that when it's -20 we're all ready to head outside, but on a day like today we're looking for shade! (which means for me personally, I stayed inside till dusk!)
Thinkin 'bout cusk on the grill......

I hear what you're saying but I have a project that needs to get done w/out the snow, I building a stone wall, Oh my aching back, I rather be ice fishing.

Looking good Ice! Yes sir, the back will ache, the hands, the feet, the knees, the whole deal, but when it's complete....you will be proud, and the pain will make you smile.

IW, that looks great! Looks like you have plenty of shade, though. That must help.

Don't mind mowing grass? Let me know when you're in NH....I'll give you directions to my place and tell you where the mower is.  ;D

I got 2 acres of grass to cut......

Ice, how are you at doing retaining walls????

Don't get me wrong, I am ok with summer....gives me time to dust off the Harley, grow some veggies, raise a few animals to keep the fish company in the freezer.....but MAN! I am sure missing the ice! Winter around here in wonderful! Nothing to do in the yard, the beer stays cold in the shanty, the "Honey Do" list is a thing of the past......sunlight on chrome is nice but give me a good spot over a crib with a pail full of bait and good friends anytime!

Before we know it, it will be harvest/slaughter time, then hunting season. By the time the guns are cleaned and bows put away, it will be time to re-string the reels. I love the time of year where I start looking out over my favorite fishing spot....looking for that first hint of ice!!!

Looks great Jeff!  Can't believe you're doing all that in this heat.  (ok, heading back to hibernation... )
If you noticed, it's fairly shadey where the wall is & I only work on it 2 to 3 hrs @ a time. I hate the heat!

I guess it's over. 
I took these pictures today and the ice is looking pretty soft.   ::)

Thanks for sharing the pictures with us Drifter. It still amazes me how long a season you have there. We haven't had ice in months now, but the clock is ticking and the countdown has already begun. Perhaps another service is in order?
