Thing one and Thing two...

Usually about this time the Birnie bros decide to resume their terrorizing of the Lake Michigan boating community, eating snakes, chasing the Coast guard, zipping down the Mississippi, generally creating havoc and having fun with the red ufo, seems to me they ought to be out breaking ice bergs on the big Lake, anyone heard or seen from them? We need some entertainment here on the N. American forum, hell I think even Stoo is probably down south somewhere, anyone home?
You know it is getting bad when you are soliciting responses from other ribbers but we just dug out of over Twenty inches of snow on Saturday here in O-Hi-O and I'm like a junkie with no fix (add boat and water) Please... Somebody give a little hope, I CAN'T TAKE IT NO MORE!!! I NEED SPRING!!

More snow!!!

Pat,
saw that snowstorm on the news;you guys are getting walloped this year. So much for global warming
Here's a few suggestions to keep you occupied ;from our weekend

Take the family crabbing - Oh forgot, they are probably all frozen stiff
Go fly a kite -OOps,the blizzard will probably rip your arms off !
Chase a hardboater around - damn, lakes still frozen !
Go whalewatching on a classic tall ship Drat; forgot-they've all gone south

Yep, you're F*****

cheers Dal

My view every morning, explains all.
Global warming is a myth, period.
Nice shots Dal, Hopefully in the not too distant future, I can return the favor...

Exactly - I LOVE snow - you can have great fun. What can you do in constant rain and gales over Force 8 for most of the year???

Just been down to check on my boat - the sea is boiling - just a mass of white - 14' waves straight into the harbour and 75mph winds - I'm glad I put the extra ropes on!!!

you must be paranoid. i wasn't having a go... ...you asked a question; i gave an answer, based on what most people in this country seem to like to do to pass the time during the bad weather. Perhaps I should have included excessive punctuation marks to help express my opinion?

If I was having a go I would have pointed out that "most of the year" was a gross exageration; or reminded you that it is within your control to upsticks to somewhere with better weather.

I don't know Tuber... Let me ask you, do YOU feel any warmer this month? Or winter for that matter...
In our area typical average temps are down about 12 - 13 degrees daily so far for the month.
