Saw on the news the past couple of days that the low temp got down below freezing at Saranac Lake.

Got word from the 'Dacks, as of this evening the leaves are almost at peak in Blue Mountain Lake.  Getting closer!

Hope we have some good early ice this year (mid-December, at least!) ... need to make up for lost time after last year.

Yea....I know. I'm startin' to get the "itch" myself. Two weeks ago Saturday, the Wife and I stopped at a yard sale and I bought a box of ice fishing gear....there were 7 polar tip-ups (one was a windlass) two other off-brand polar type tip-ups, a 5" Mora hand auger that looked like it might have drilled a few holes, a host of other goodies......ice scoops, creepers, depth weights, some jigs ( including a half dozen Swedish pimples) and only a few of the tip-ups even had line on them. The rest looked like they had never been used. Now, the lady had a sign on the box that said $40.00 TAKE IT ALL!!!!. I offered her $30.00 and she said...What the heck...nobody else is gonna buy this crap this time of year....IT'S YOURS!!! I probably got well over a hundred bucks worth of stuff and even though I didn't need any of it...I just couldn't pass it up..... ;D WK

With the weather today in Beacon ( NY ) it is hard to imagine fall weather getting here, let alone winter weather. It is already in the 80's on the way to 90 today. My kids are in the pool and the AC is running. Way too early to start predicting or hoping for any ice making weather.
