    I would think it's all froze up in your part of the country.
    I know you will be glad to have water to train in.
    Randy Water is froze solid! They are playing hockey on it after they shovel the snow off! Snowmobilers run the pond and rivers if they are able. They also ice fish here (big thing?) I doubt we will see training water until end of April maybe if we are lucky! Hope you folks survive the storm coming that way! Not a nice winter anywhere!

    Today's training was impossible. Weather -11F in the morning and although the sun was out, the wind was blowing. This is what our training boiled down to this morning. Thought I would post to show everyone the little bit of creative training we can do just for fun! I ran Tar on two driveways and across the street (very quiet street). Not perfect but this was the best you can do. Getting real tired of this!!! I hope the weather is going to change SOON!!!

    Hope everyone faired okay in the storm. Looked very bad on ABC news tonight.

    ML, That's tough training weather. Next week is going to be really warm here. Some lows above 50. Lots of water work next week.

    Todd that looks pretty cold. And when the wind really blows! Do wish I had more wide open areas. Going to look at the ponds this weekend!! Weather to be better. Maybe rain by next Friday. With 3 feet of snow that will be interesting!

    At lunch time today the air temp was 70 and water temp was 51. I put a vest on Rowdy and we did a swimby refresher. Tomorrow will resume water marks and blinds. Yea!
