Good morning. Well a really nice looking day thus far. Temperatures are sitting at…. 17 C | 62.6 F. Will warm up to where it was yesterday a bit later on. Forecast for today is calling for it to be….Stormy, much rain later on in the day and into tomorrow and Tuesday even. Going to get some rain which in reality is needed. Amazing how things dry out so quickly. Reason being it is mostly sandy soil in our area. Mother nature looks after her own. We as humans think we are so powerful, but if truth be known we are smaller than a gnat compared to our Mother…Earth. Makes me smile when the so called Powers That Be….say. “This is the way it’s going to be.”
Bug Report: Well…Black Flies and Mosquitoes are out in full force preying upon us warm blooded critters. They aren’t real fussy neither, be it horses, dogs, cats, birds, deer or humans. All a spring feast to them. At any rate each day moves forward towards the end of the Black Flies and hoping the Mosquitoes fill their appetite and leave us humans alone a bit. Of course then we have the horse flies and deer flies, along with the no see flies coming into the picture. Kind of just have to take them one at at time.
Fishing Times: Today the old weather stick, along with Grandfathers Formula, says that the best times to be out there fishing will be from 12:00 PM – 2:30 PM. Then once again from 5:00 PM – 7:30 PM. I give it a 1 fish rating for catching them early, with a 2 fish rating out of 4 later on in the day. So not the greatest day for fishing, but as I always say…One just never knows when that big old Walleye might take a notion to have a snack. Good luck!
Around Town: Quiet here in town this morning. Once again hardly a car going up or down Highway 522. You know that tells me folks are staying home enjoying their time with their families. Seems like a modest thing one can do. Don’t you think? My family lives so far apart, makes it a bit hard to communicate, but when we do see each other we make up in the Hug department let me tell ya.
So lots to take in here on the Blog this morning. Enjoy your day, soak up some much needed Vitamin D, that our sun so gracefully gives us for free, sit back and take in what Nature has to offer. ‘No Doctors Needed.’ GW
