    Well no school today. Looks like we got about a 1/4 inch of sleet/ice and I think they are calling for more on the way yet today. Be carefull if your driving out there.

    So, stay home and cook something Spoony. Make an extra batch for uninvited guests.

    We got a motorgrader operator who just quit here this week cause he couldn't take the ice and snow anymore. Want me to put your name in? He is running a brand new John Deere. Got air conditioning and everything. Union job to boot.

    I dont know if I can blame him Beetle. Lived there too long myself. I was in Mn. for 1 year and we had snow on the ground for 6 months of it. Now I dont mind ice fishin but it's hard to justify a boat payment when you cant ever use the thing. Both of my ice augers have been rusting in storage since. :big_smile:
    I dont know if we even have a motorgrader set up here for snow. Wonder if I can park it at the house, got lots of pot holes in my lane that need some work.

    I woke up at 2am this morning to the sound of sleet pelting my bedroom window. They cancelled school early this morning. since I work on the technology for the local school district, no working for me. :wink:

    I wish I had my items in from Cabelas already so I would have something to play with for the day. My surf rod I like using for snagging still needs finished up, but I'm out of thread and waiting on it to come in. :angry:

    Around a 1/4 inch of snow here this am. Sounds like from the Mo. river south there are a lot of school closings. I will scoop the snow spoonfish, you can keep the Ice.

    Everything that we got is ice and sleet. My step mom just got home a few minutes ago and she said it took her 1.5 hours to make a 45 minute trip home from work.

    Yeah, it's certainly nasty out there. Most area schools are off today. Unfortunately, this means we have to go an extra day in May :(

    All schools but mine was closed today. We start early and all the other schools start an hour after us. They all closed at last minute which left our district open. Too late to cancel school 20 minutes before it starts. I just hope it stops for now and until school lets out... I'd hate to know that politics was responsible for deaths on the road.

    Had some very large flakes earlier but now it's stopped again. As I said in another post I didn't let it bother me. I made a beer run.
