24° here in Upstate NY this morning, the high temperature is to get up to around 35°.

I was busy all day yesterday and about 4:00PM it started to snow a little bit. We have about 4" now and it sleeted a little overnight, they say we might get up to 1" more of snow today. Quite a few areas around me got a lot more snow than I have. Of course it goes without saying there were all kinds of accidents with the first storm of winter. Today I will be cleaning the snow out and I have some work to do on the gun club website.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

morning all. 14 to start off a busy day. Will get into the high40s again today, not our normal Nov. temps. that's for sure.
Took it kinda easy yesterday, got the new furniture in the house, I like when they deliver and set it up!
I even got to shoot the AR10- 6.5 creedmoor, it sure didn't like the loads I worked up. A couple of them showed some hope but the long bullets didn't feed from the mag well at all. They hung up on the locking lugs in the barrel extension for some reason. :mad:
Boss man took cows to the sale yesterday but when he got home we got the big bunch in for testing today, well we got most of them anyway. It got dark and a few got away, we'll get them this morning, I hope.
Better get moving, sure could have slept in this morning.
Have a good FRIDAY and be safe out there.
GOD BLESS. Dean

Good morning, GoGo. It's 31 in Louisville, going to 46, with sun for the first time in several days. It spit snow and "wintry mix" off and on yesterday and a hard snow shower around sundown dumped about 1/4 inch that's still on the ground.

I've been AWOL all week, but I have a good excuse: rifle deer season. Sunday morning I killed a 50-pound doe. Normally I'd let one like that grow, but she came in by herself and when there's only one deer I have a really hard time judging size. My rule in that case is "If it don't have spots, take the shot." I made up for it on Wednesday morning by killing a 99-pound doe. Naturally when I shot the small one I had a buddy right there to help drag, but the 99-pounder I had to hump up the hill all by myself. Being old and fat is going to kill me one of these days, but not that day. :)

After killing, dragging and skinning on Wednesday, I had already planned to take Thursday off. I woke up about 4 a.m. when my CPAP started and stopped about 4 times in a row before finally stopping for good. Turns out we'd had an overnight ice storm and 125,000 Jefferson county homes were without power. I fired up my kerosene lamps and a kero heater, then took Miss Cindy to IHOP about 9:30. Felt a lot like Doug Roberts as I ate my pancakes. Power was out until about 5 p.m. and I was a happy camper at that point.

I thought about hunting today, but decided to take another day off and get my venison cut and wrapped. I still have Saturday and Sunday at the private arboretum south of Louisville where I hunt. I've seen some real heavy 8-pointers brought in this year and would really be tickled to bring one home this weekend.

That's about it for the ol' Carpman. Y'all have a good day and be safe out there. If you're hunting, WEAR YOUR SAFETY HARNESS. And if you're driving WEAR YOUR SEAT BELT.

good morning folks. It's 36º, the sun is shining, snow is melting and we didn't get any more of that white stuff overnight. I guess you know how my night plowing snow went, so we won't get into that. :rolleyes: The Kraken and cider took the edge off and I was asleep by 9:30. :)

Woke up to pee about 3AM and walking back to bed noticed something wasn't right outside my bedroom window. Peeked out and there was a doe eating the flowers out of the pot. I was literally a foot away from her head and she didn't notice me. This morning I get up and wonder what else she ate, so I peeked out the window and saw her lying alongside the house, under the eve where the snow didn't lay. I'll get a pic up when I get it off my phone. Lots of deer around here. Saw a good 8 point with a doe while I was walking up the drive yesterday. Hope he sticks around for mom to get a crack at in a few weeks.

Well, it's FRIDAY! Better get to work, although I don't know how well my productivity is going to be today. Good luck hunting Mikey! Have a good one!

You can see by that arborvitae they know where to come when it snows. I didn't trim that tree like that...they did.

Good morning from Fort Worth, 42 this morning, nice to have some real Texas weather. 69 for the high.
I found the roof material to finish patching the RV roof yesterday, so that's today's job. Warm weather will make it easier also.
Not much else planned, maybe help my son in law hang porch swings. He has 6 to hang around this outdoor thing he built, at daughter's insistence.
Hope everyone has a blessed day,,
Ken
