Bah, Humbug

I was accused of being grouchy this week.  Actually, another adjective was used, but I will not repeat it here.

Is it any wonder?


With some modifications, this meme pretty much nails it:


Oh sure, I will transition to open-water fishing.  Gotta fish!  However, I know there is a lot of cold weather, cold water, and tough fishing to come before “spring” is really here.  Under those conditions, I can, and have, caught way more fish through a hole in the ice.  For that reason I always hope that ice lasts as long as possible.   Early February ain’t near long enough!

Don’t even think of walking up to me and saying how nice our winter has been.  At least not right now. . . .

I might snap.

In spite of the terrible weather, try to get outdoors and enjoy it this weekend.  That is really the ONLY therapy!
