25 degrees and 20 mph winds today with ground blizzards and snow devils but I saw a woman standing outside the Dollar store having a smoke, a runner taking a jog around Price Rd, and an angler fishing Stoney Creek.

I was fishing the Smith today with all the insulated cloths I could wear on and freezing, but actually catching a few!! We made one last stop and there was two kids, probably 10 and 13 playing in the river in tennis shoes!!!!!!! I couldn't feel my feet with three pair of socks on!! I couldn't believe it!!!!

Can't believe any body fished Stoney yesterday. If it wasn't running so hard with the snow melt,it would be frozen from Shady Valley to Hunter.
A buddy was up on the mountain a few days ago and said that the drifts around Cross Mtn. Road were about 4 feet deep

The guy was fishing, flyfishing, where the creek swings near the road below the Dollar store. At least he was fishing upstream so he had his back to the wind. But, still, a helluva man.

You've out done me. I can't near a stream since this stuff started. Next week looks worse.
