Favorite Spring time Hobby
I know a lot of you still have rough weather, for those of us not having it, why are you looking forward to spring?

The days down here are already getting longer, I'm looking forward to taking evening walks again and having more available day light.

In the spring, I like to drive around the state and look at the flooding. It should be interesting this year, but it will be a while since in some areas the volunteers have not yet begun filling sandbags.

We had 1" of snow yesterday and the snow cover still decreases slightly. Some area could be up 23 feet over today's levels, but fortunately the terrain limits the flooded land area except for North Dakota where it could spread 20 miles before the Canadian ice jams go away.

The long days sure are happening quickly.

You ever find anything interesting?

My travels will start in about a week when the water starts rising in the bigger streams and river.

I already have my seed catalogs and know what I am going to cram into the space I have available at my townhouse. Cannot really buy much and the 8-10" of snow cover is still there and will be almost gone in a week or so if the weatherman is correct - melting from above and below because there is not much frost and rains forecast will really do a job if they come.

The brave crappie fisherman are about ready to go out on the ice when it gets a little softer and thinner. - On skis or snowshoes, wearing a life jacket and pulling a canoe.

Time to get some new line spooled on my 6 fishing reels. It ends up being easier and very reasonable by having it done by a sporting goods shop after I clean and oil the reels. The trouble is, I will probably buy a couple of blanks and build a few more rods that I really don't need. - Time to start dreaming.

That's cool. What part of the world are you in?

Is it too soon to wish for spring? It's only gets up to 60 or 70 during the day now. I'd be much better with 80 or 90. :D
