Plowed snow yesterday then finished plowing this morning.
Mainly plowed out the neighbors.
Got to keep on the good side of the mayor(he thinks he is). Nice enough guy but wouldn't like to piss him off too much.
Other neighbors they don't have any equipment so go plow them out and he turns water on for us when we can't get here.

Spitting snow out there now almost looks like rain but not at 20*.

Went out fishing again today in my t-shirt. Weather is great here. At The Moment. Give it another couple months and I bet I will be wishing I was back in the high desert of Nevada.

Speaking of cold, I was surprised when I got up this morning and it was 43 degrees! I don't know what it got down to but the forecast tonight is 27 overnight low! That's by far the coldest it's been here all winter. The rest of the week, looks like hovering around freezing?

You know, Mt Baldy is about 8 miles north of here and it's around 13,000 ft and the lifts are running, so I know snow. WE haven't been snowed on here at the house in quite a few years, but it could happen. We are about 1650 ft. elevation.

Looks like 18* in Ash fork tonight. 50* here, right now.

Good hunting. El Bee

Hey El Bee;
Do they still allow those smudge pots in the orchards of politically correct Calif. when the temps drop ????

They've almost quit using them in the Valley of Plenty (Emmett) but they've just about pulled all the orchards out of there compared to 40 years ago.
Over on Sunny Slope they are using the wind towers now.

Suppose to go -6 tonight. But they also said it wasn't suppose to get above 23* too. We hit 36*

Suppose to have major wind and -20 or better wind chill just to our south by morning. Don't tell the wind it's not suppose to come over the pass.

It was -34 F last Friday, freezing rain on Monday with 1/2" of ice and a winter storm warning Thursday with a foot of snow in the forecast. Friday the cold settles in ...again.

Still going here.Now over deck in places and slowly creeping up the side of our house.
Never good when you get 'multiple warnings in effect' from the weather Bureau.

What's wrong with Emmett? Been around that area for 51 years.

-1 with 2 mph wind. Didn't know a dog could survive wrapped around a wood stove that tight. He has a great dog house but he is short haired with out much under fur. Black Mouth cur dog.

If he sleeps inside he keeps one of us up most of the night stoking the wood stove.

Everybody's different but I have no problem with my dog in the house. In the first place, they don't stink. I think they probably stink when they spend all their time outdoors. My Redbone used to sleep on the bed with us, a California King and she took up the whole lower half. A very clean dog, she was, but a bed hog!

Everybody's different, but Airedales? All I think about is John Henry and his ill mannered, misbehaved mutts. No offense! If I ever get another dog, it will be a hound.

Good hunting. El Bee

Funny, if my dog gets muddled up, when we get home he literally runs directly to the bathroom and jumps into the tub, without any prodding! Then, starts barking if I take too long to get the shower running...darndest thing ya ever seen!

IF they haven't hyped this storm up it is sounding like winter has finally arrived.

Bed your dog in grass type hay and they'll smell good all the time. Less fleas too. Straw is hollow and fleas can live in it, plus other bugs.

Our dog is in all day usually in the winter. He'll go out as long as you go out until he gets cold. Just to bad he came with a short hair coat.

Sitting in the office with my bitches a real love fest they maul me till I bleed then we cam get on with what's next. Leo Airedales are terriers they are very active and have a short attention span they get bored quickly but you cant beat them in the field ! Not a good house dog when I bring them in it takes about forty minutes for any kind if peace they run to my wife to get petted and then lick her till she shouts I have correction collars on them and they work. I usually only use the vibrate mode but on occasion I must zap them. The licking is uncontrollable but I hesitate to correct it as it is their show of affection and I would not want to stop that !
they can run down a rabbit in short order and have brought me several they think I am God and to me they are proof there is one ! I cant tell you how much I love them they are special !
Oh by the way they emptied the cushion from my chair shit everywhere LOL

I'm 100% in favor of dogs. They are man's best friend. I recognize that some pit bulls don't deserve the reputation of the breed but something's wrong. The shelters are full of pit bulls and they can't give them away. I think a tax on unaltered pit bulls would be a step in the right direction.

Beyond that, dogs are great, kind of sad that they have such a short life, but it is what it is. I don't care for the high strung types, which is why I prefer the hounds that only get excited in pursuit....in theory, anyway. And I love those big floppy ears.

But, I have Pinky. A couple days ago I teased the hell out of him with a feather duster. He defended his aviary. It was funny, but a Moluccan is not a lapdog and not timid, at all. It's kind of amazing that they live upwards of 75 years. I'm taking applications as to who takes over when I croak. He has expensive tastes, prefers cashews to peanuts. That, and the fact that when the old fart "safe cracker" was here, I had Pinky in a cage outside because the safe is in the aviary. After a bit, he asked about that dog that kept barking. That's a talent that Pinky learned from Karen's weinerdog. It was funny as hell to watch both of them barking at kids walking by, and the kids would turn around and walk back just to get a replay. Karen was always afraid that Pinky would/could hurt her dog, not the other way around. With a dog, you throw them a bone. With Pinky, I give him an old channel changer to take apart. Keeps him busy for hours, down to the last spring.

Good hunting. El Bee

Dogs are the only way to go. I hate cats! Well unless I have the crosshairs of my 22-250 on a big ol' bobcat. I have three dogs and all of them are house pets. I agree will L.B. when he says pit bulls got a bad wrap. Its the owner 90% of time...
If one was to ask my wife, she would tell you in a heart beat I would pick my dogs of 99% of humanity. I will say if one wants a smart, high energy, fearless type of dog I would suggest a Catahoula. Wouldn't trade my catahoula for a million bucks. She is the youngest out of the pack and is the alpha. Didn't take long for her to establish who gonna run the show. Its funny to watch my German Shepard try to be dominate only to be dominated by a dog half his size. Good times-tex

My dad and his buds were houndsmen and I was raised right along with the 10-15 hounds we always had at any time. Geezus they were a handful. I shoveled shit and slung dogfood till I couldnt see straight. I love hounds and everything about hound hunting.

But...I like cats! Theyre funny as hell and a good study for bobcat huntin'. Cats have a ton of weird habits and curiosity really does kill the cat. I can only take 5 cats here in Kali and Ive shot 3 this winter, all over cat vocals, 1 on an enclosed reed and a diaphragm doing said vocals.

Anyways, if Pinky learns to repair Jeeps or build handcalls, let me know, I might have a room for him.

Hey Tex, y'all mind me asking what a "Catahoula" is ?

Internet says it's a Leopard Dog ?

Many around here have cattle dogs they call "Catahoula's " Hell my dog is supposed to be Aussie Shepard-Catahoula mix ?

She looks like a long haired Aussie to me ?
