thats a northern pike... those things will eat anything that they can fit into their ample mouths...even their brethren half their size...

snowed another foot here last night.. but temps "warmed" to the 20's..they are saying 50 by the weekend..

the weather man said that that storm was going to intesify out to seas and whack nova scotia and eventualy our friends accross the pond.. so if he's tight you got some white ugly headed your way...

let it snow

Aaahhh... the Great Northern Pike.... terror of NE freshwater ecosystems. I once hooked a 12" chain pickerel, and a pike darted out of a weed bed and bit the poor fish in half. It was dead before I reeled it to the boat.

Current temp. 31° F. ( if all this snow melts, we are going to have a serious mud problem)

sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Hopefully it snows itself out before it gets there....

on snow.... I don't mind it much on weekends.. but during rhe week it is a nightmare... part of my job discription denotes that I clear it from walkways and roof drains...

last night the traffic was unbelieaveable... it took me an hour to get home...i live 6 miles from work..

love snow...except...

I love the snow when I'm not driving in it. It is VERY dangerous.
Compared to natural disasters like tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods... driving on snow covered roads kills and injures far more people each year in the US than anything.

A plea to all who drive in bad weather- please be careful, go slow, leave early...real early so you won't feel rushed. A guy I work with was seriously injured Saturday while driving on bad roads.

Ok now its 51°F. The whole city is a sloppy, slushy, foggy, rainy mess. But at least I can feel my hands and nothing freezes when I inhale outdoors.

We are sitting at zero and over night the rain has frozen everything into a giant shell of ice. The car is frozen solid!!! and it will take hours to scrape it all off just to get inside to start it.

Ugh!! I've had that happen once or twice. Take some buckets of warm water and douse the driver's side door until you can open it to start the car. Then let the defroster do the rest :)

Good luck and be careful walking!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
