Greetings 9:45 regular posters this is my first post on Ice Shanty and to this thread from my new home.  I had phone,TV and computer service activated yesterday sso now comes the job of cleaning out remaining items from house and doing some work to make house more attractive on the real estate market. I tried getting on Ice Shanty last night but got error message then remembered updates and upgrades were being done to the server for this website.
Eddie sorry you have to start your work day earlier so you can find parking near job site.
Ice Wanderer glad you made it back home safely and repairs are completed to camp roof. Sounds like a fun time fishing even if majority of fish caught had to e released.
Whopper Stopper I have a feeling this "Green Horn " will not last if he is so worried about damaging his tattoos.
Wallyworld you sure are having plenty of deer activity on the trail cameras hope it lasts through hunting season.I
IFF may the mystery feline help put a dent in local rat population.

I will have to keep a watch on Hurricane Irma reports does not look good for the residents of Florida.
Have a safe and pleasant evening everyone.

Good Morning Everyone :bow:

Glad to see most have trickled  back to the 9:45, I am sure the rest of the regulars will be along soon :clap:

X2 on Wally's sentiments  "Thoughts & prayers go out to those in Irma's path"

The wife and I are heading to the shack this morning and will probably spend the night. I have a few things to do with a stand and then my main goal is to get the meat pole re-made for the upcoming season.

Hope you all have a good weekend. Good luck if hitting the water :thumbsup: Stay safe!

                   Good morning ER's,
                           Wow........What long maintance session that was, I was having Ice Shanty withdrawal syndrome! :roflmao:
                   It sure is good to have it back.
                            It's 45* and the moon is out here on my hill with a somewhat of a nice day predicted!
                            Today I will be making some last preparations for a week vacation in Old Orchard Beach Me. we leave Monday
                   and won't be home till next Monday.
                            Wally.......Thank you for asking about my brother, he had a plane reservation for this morning but they
                   cancelled it yesterday, so he has no choice at this point but to ride it out. His house was built 3 years ago so it
                   is up to the highest hurricane codes. I talked to him last night, and he is prepared with plenty of water and food.
                   I'm sure that communications will be disrupted but I told him that as soon as something is back up and running
                   to contact me! My high school roommate also lives in the same town but he took off Thursday for Atlanta but as
                   you know Irma changed course and is headed that way!
                            I saw that WS was on site but have not seen anything from him, have a good weekend at "The Shack" Marv! :clap:
                            I hope everyone has a good Saturday either at work or out fishing!
                             I see WS posted while I was typing!

Good Morning Marv, Jeff, Morning Everyone,
  Must agree, the withdrawal syndrome was getting to me as well, sure is nice to see the site up and running again!   :clap: :thumbsup:
  It's clear and 46* on the Hill this am, high of 61 forecasted for today.

  Jeff..Prayers and well wishes sent for your brother and all those in Irma's path. Was fixated on the weather channel for the last hour or so with all their predictions concerning winds, rain totals and storm surge...scarey stuff. Hope you have good weather and a great time on vacation!   :thumbsup:
  Marv..hoping we get a glimpse of that new meat pole! Enjoy the day up the shack...roasted chicken on the menu tonight?   ;D
  Steve..glad to hear you're in the new home! Best wishes on getting the house ready for the market!   :thumbsup: 
  Bud...hope the cat has been helping out with the rodent problem...any shots fired last evening?  ;D
  H2...good luck with the fishing today!

  There's been some good reports of salmon running this past week, would love to be there wetting a line this weekend but I'll be on my knee's laying tile all weekend...lol. Homeowner had company in town visiting for the past few days, so that put a damper on my fishing plans...maybe next weekend.
  This cooler weather has begun to bring out some of the fall colors on the tree's, and my lawn has finally begun to slow down to boot...can't wait to put away the mower!!   ;D
  The cawfee's on and there's some bagels under the dome....help yourself!  Will catch up to you all this evening!
Have a great day, be safe, best of luck those fishing!

This is going to a tragic few days that will take a long time to get fixed.

Not looking good for my sister-in-law and her husbands new place. They bought it just before they came home for the summer and never have spent a night in it. It is on a barrier island 40 miles south of Tampa. The sister of my wife's late husband got out to Tennessee. Another friends son is trapped as his flight out got canceled and there is no gas to drive out.

I need to mow my lawn again if it will dry out from the dew every night. 39* this morning. We did end up with 4/10 of an inch of rain  Thursday. Hardly a drop in the bucket for what we need.

Good Morning ER's  Eddie nope on drawing a bead on any critters.  They must learn fast what to avoid, and when to be sneaky.

Only plan for today is attending the Gander Farewell.  See on our local broadcast the high country Aspens are turning fast.  Here at home the Russian olive is shedding leaves to. 

While IS was down,  wandered through a sight about the old home town, and see the life long residents are appalled at how things have changed with the new comer "Hippies" residents moving in, lack of ownership pride in lawns/buildings and enforcement of laws.  Comments like our quaint old town has been ruined.  They think that's bad, should maybe look at what happened to what was in Irma's path, now unrecognizable

I am sure its been hard on those that live in Florida to leave their homes.  Some by choice, some not able to afford to.  Expect the worst and hope for the best is about all that's left.  Agree with Tom, its going to take a while, to recover after the hurricane.

Well coffee time, everything under the dome here what I should avoid  ::)

Stay safe all.
Bud

Afternoon all,

IW.....your brother & all the others being hit by Irma will be in my prayers. Enjoy your vacation, packing any fishing gear  ??? :woot:

WS.....hope your trip to the shack is a productive one, the clock is ticking towards opening day  ;D

Eddie....that's too bad you're stuck working this weekend instead of on the river  :(  still plenty of time tho  ;)

IFF....hope you had a good time at the GM get together  @)

TT...you're right it will be some time before things are "normal" again for the hurricane survivors, both in Texas & Florida  :'(  I'll take the snow any day compared to hurricanes

MrC....must seem nice to have cable, phone & internet at the new home  :thumbsup:  good luck on the sale of the old home

Well, I was about 1 & 1/2 hours into mowing my lawn when the 10% chance of precip starting falling from the sky  :%$#!: :wacko:  sure wish the weatherman could get it right  :blink:  >:( 

Hope everyone has a good evening tonight and a relaxing day tomorrow. Stay safe.

ww I got most of the yard done this afternoon before I gave out. I am with you. I would take a real blizzard any time before a hurricane. In 78 we were snowed in for over 10 days but we had power and full freezers. I did ski out after a week to pick up the mail for the neighborhood and a few supplies for others. Even an ice storm with out power is preferred to a hurricane as it is generally not that cold. I will take some of the rain from Irma.

The highlight of the ski trip to town that time, which was one of many times I did that, was when I heard a muffled cry for help. My son and I were skiing the top of the 8 foot plow banks from previous storms.. I had seen a hole along the banks and my son had not. All I could see was a ski pole sticking up in the air. I had to go back and pull him out of the hole. My boys only had 5 days of school during the whole month of January that year.

A dear friend of my wife told her that her mother in Fla has refused to evacuate. Who knows if the woman will live through this as she lives in a mobile home park. Sad.

             Good morning ER's,
                     It's 48* and clear here on my hill this morning, not like the weather in Florida. The west coast is in for a ride. :wacko:
             Thank you all for the well wishes for my brother riding out the storm. His home is 13.75 feet above sea level and they say
             the storm surge could go as high as 15 feet. ::) He is 3 miles inland!
                     WW........I was planning on buying a surf pole and reel and make a PVC holder for it but with everything else going on
             it's not in my budget, but I will get it for next year!
                     Tom.......I agree with you, I'll take a blizzard over a hurricane as well. At least you can control what happens to your
            home by removing snow! :flex:
                     Bud.......How was the Gander farewell?
                     Eddie.....Have fun on your knees praying to the tile gods! LOL ;D
                     I hope everyone has a good Sunday either at work or at play!

            IW

Good Sunday Morning Jeff, Morning Everyone,
  Partly cloudy and 48* this am, high of 65 expected here today. Will keep everyone riding the storm out in Florida in my thoughts and prayers today.

  Tom...thank goodness you could hear your son calling for help, yikes!  ;D. Imagine there are many just like your wifes friends Mom who refused to leave their dwellings...May God Bless them all.
  Wally..yes, plenty of time to get a trip in yet...phone has been ringing with more jobs people want done before the snow fly's again, lol. Thanks for sharing those pictures with us again...that big black and white one would be a good eater but a tough drag for Mr.WW!!   ;D
  Bud..hope you had a great time yesterday with the farewell party!  :thumbsup:
  OG...hope you put those Demons to work again yesterday, they worked real well on the crappies for me tipped with spikes.    :thumbsup:
  Jeff...have a safe ride to Maine if you're leaving today..hope you're bringing a pole or two with you this time, put that new Maine fishing license to good use!!   :thumbsup:  yep...praying to the tile Gods again... :roflmao: :thumbsup:

  Had a pretty good productive day on the tile job yesterday. The tile chosen is that wood floor looking type, homeowner caught a deal at Lowes for $.99 /sq. ft.  I'm using a spacer/leveling system made by QEP that uses a plastic wedge that goes through the spacer to help keep the tiles flat and prevent lippage..long/large tiles have a tendency to bow when they are fired. It works pretty well, but it has it's flaws like anything else I suppose and takes extra time.
  Starting at 8 this am as the development has its noise rules...don't need any tongue lashes from the neighbor's about my tile saw running...lol....cawfe e's on!
  Here's a short video on that tile system I mentioned...https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PUBAnbAm3AI

Have a great day all, be safe, best of luck to those fishing!

Good Morning ER's  Jeff, WW It was Sad, probably not much chance of crossing paths with any of them.  As usual ate to much. I took potato salad, and most of it came home, also took a batch of cheese curds, and a bottle of wine. the lead cashier/customer service shared the wine.  The cheese was all gone  ;D   Did lean our Lead cashier got on with the Cabela's store close by me.  Full time as a manager.  She transferred up from a Texas store a couple years ago.  Forgot to ask her how many years total with GM.  But all in all it was a "Farewell"  I left about when some others called it a day.  Hand shakes all around, They were having a volley ball game, bare footed in the sand with a socker ball, and all stopped playing and lined up as I wheeled out my cooler, for the final hand shake.  Made me what to  :'(  :'(  Did put up a couple pictures on Face book.

Didn't get a good kill shot on a rat but see it left some what looked like a piece of flesh.  Looked like mice in the bird feeder and they are very skittish, and hard to approach.  They don't bail and jump clear to the ground but skamper up the wire and back down the tree it hangs from.  put a mouse trap inside see if it might smack one.  Hope this means its going to be a long "Ice" cold winter  :unsure:

Got a couple bait stations I will put out, at least nothing else will get into those.

See Eddie slipped in ahead of me, hope the tile job goes good for you.

well nap time for me.  Enjoy the day if you can.  Above all stay safe.

Bud

Morning all,

41* here this morning, looks like a pretty nice week heading our way  :clap:

Eddie....thanks for sharing that video, looks like a lot of painstaking work  :flex:  guess that's why you make the big bucks  :bow: :woot:

IW....let us know when you hear the all clear from your brother please, hope he doesn't get hit with the storm surge  :nono:  safe travels to Maine, enjoy  :thumbsup:

TT....prayers to your wife's friend's mother for a safe ride thru the hurricane, not sure if I'd leave my home either  :-\  tough decision either way I'm sure. I remember scenes like you described from the blizzard of 66  :o :o  thankfully those storms are few & far between  ;)

WS....hope all went well at the shack & you're set for opening day  :thumbsup: 

IFF.....hope you had fun at your get together yesterday  :)  any more kills or has your feline helper thinned the herd  ???

Heading to Lake Erie in a bit for a few days. Hope to find some hungry eyes  ;)2 

Have a good day. Stay safe.

IFF.....sorry to hear the day was a sad one  :(  it is tough knowing you are probably seeing the people you spent so much time with for the last time  :'(  with facebook & such you can still check in on them from time to time tho  ;)

Eddie That is a neat way to get the tile to get set level. A dentist friend had one of his assistants husband make some custom tile for him. I do not think that those things could have got the warped tile to set flat with the next one. You did not want to walk bare foot in either of the areas that he did for the doc, as the up turned corners were sharp. Besides that when there was moisture on your shoes they were slippery.

During that blizzard I stayed up all night one night, shoveling out the back door as I watched a huge drift out by the barn get moved to the house when the wind switched. I had a guy with a pay loader come and try to move the snow from behind the house. I ended up making steps to get up and over the pile of snow so I could get to the chickens so I could feed them. The national guard had cleared the road to about a half mile of us luckily as the neighbor across the road decided it was time to have her baby. Luckily one of the county road guys got through to get her out or my wife at the time who worked in the maternity ward would have been delivering that baby.

The worst part about being snowed in is once the roads are open the people from town have to come look at the snow banks while we are getting out to get supplies. A lot of the time the roads are only one lane and have blind spots so you might meet some one coming at you. One time I would have snowmobiled over a pick up if someone had not tied a flag on the radio antenna.

No rain in sight in the guessed future. I need to find a new thimble for my chimney over here this week so I do not have to spend time while I am over there going a half hour north to get one.

Good afternoon everyone adding my prayers to all the others for all the folks in Hurricane Irma's path. 
Eddie interesting tile leveling system hope the installation goes fast and is trouble free.
Ice Wanderer have a great trip, may your brother make it through Irma with minimal damage to his property. Hold off on buying the surf rod years back I received one from a friend he got the rod for a neighbor who was cleaning out brother house . Think it is 12 foot long ,2 piece rod also have home made transport case for the rod may also have a spare PVC rod holder. Send me a message when you return if interested.
IFF good to read at least one of your coworkers has found new full time employment. Sure there were a lot of mixed emotions at the gathering .
Wallyworld a safe and good trip to Lake Erie. Looking forward to some pictures of trophy walleyes or other fish.
Mr. Turkey I remember the winter of 78 my area got hit by multiple storms in late Jan.-early Feb. missed close to a week of school .
Whopper Stopper have fun at the shack all the best with new meat pole installation.
Old Goat congrats on the good fishing may the demons continue to produce on your next trip.
Is it just me or is the spell check feature missing since the recent server update/upgrades?
Have a good and safe remainder of today. May everyone's friends and relatives who reside in Florida survive the hurricane.
Steve

Good Morning Everyone :bow:

Patriots day, I am sure everyone knows exactly what they were doing at that fateful day >:(

A long weekend has me a little tired this morning. First post went poof so I guess I will leave it at this.

Best of luck if hitting the lakes :thumbsup: Stay safe!
