Ice Fishing Times: This morning the old weather stick is saying that the best time to be out there will be from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM. Then once again a bit later from 3:00 PM – 5:30 PM. I give it a 4 fish rating out of 5 for catching a few. Good Luck!
Around Town: Quiet and not much happening in and around our District. This morning it looks like our driveway needs to be cleaned once again. Seems to be the trend these days. But it does give one the exercise they need to stay fit. Coming in from the cold the wood heat immediately makes you feel warm all over. Nothing can beat it when it comes to getting warm. For most of my life I have heated with wood and will continue to do so till, well, lets not think on them lines. This year I had a whole house humidifier installed onto my wood furnace and what a difference. One now can keep a smaller fire going as with the humidity in the air you feel just that much warmer. So often I see homes with out it and folks complaining about being cold. With all forced air furnaces I would say in this country it is a must. It is also very healthy for you relieving all kinds of conditions that can irritate a person. So think on that for a bit and if you can wrangle it through your financial situation get it done. You will enjoy winter just that much more. What you safe on your heating fuel will more than pay for it. Oh just make sure it is installed properly. Very important. Tea time here, Chaga is on the menu with a touch of chicory. Good for what ails a person along with giving one the energy they need to enjoy their day.
