    That’s what Norman said. But his was in a positive way.

    Two & a half years ago I had my house built. And since then I have had water issues. First my sprinkler system was junk. It had no pressure, so I checked the filters and cleaned them. Not much better. I then changed the heads and put in slightly different filters. Got a little better. Last spring I turned on the water system and had a crack in the pc pipe. Fixed that, and while I was fixing that I found rocks inside my pipes. What the ? The people who put in my system put stones inside my pipe. I heard stories about how disgruntled they were with the company who built my house, but why take it out on the customer?

    Yesterday I thought I had better water my trees because of the warm dry winter we have been getting this year down here. Not like where creek lives I’m sure. So I turned on the spigot and about 5 to 10 min. Later my son came out and said the sewing room is getting wet. Yep, busted copper pipe. I’m pretty sure we caught it in time before any major problems could occure. But after $475 later, all fixed, except for the hole in the ceiling the plumber cut out to get to the pipe. Now I have that to repair, but it’s not a big problem. The spigot faces north, and there is nothing stopping that north wind. So I had the plumber put in a shut off valve there so this wouldn’t happen again.

    I did notice today watering the trees that there are many little black spiders in the grass crawling around. 😐💡 hmmmm?

    Ok, I have to share this. This just happened.

    I have these two neighbors and my neighbor on the north side just brought out some hot dogs & burgers to grill. It is a beautiful day for it. Anyway, my neighbor put the food on the table and went in. As soon as she went in, the others neighbors dog came around the corner of the house. These people don’t have a fence. And what do you think he found?

    I must tell you, this isn’t the first time this has happened either. Hank, the dog, is going to have a tummy ache. And a boot up his rear if he gets caught.

    I’m going to play Seargent Schultz and pretend that I know nosink.

    It’s time to move.

    Dry winter? The state has record snow pack this year.

    Down here it has been very dry. Today it’s in the mid 60’s We haven’t had snow in a month, and the last snow we got was maybe 5 inches. The last wet weather we had was that little ice storm. My neighbors who owns the dog are in their drive shooting baskets in T-shirts. This isn’t right, and I am worried about flooding happening down here. All the snow is happening in the mountains, which is good, but we need something down here. It’s the 19th of Feb. and we have the windows open.

    If it stays warm this week, I will be on the Poudre this weekend. I can’t let this weather go by without casting a line.

    Silver lining right there. The only creek with wild trout within reasonable day trip range to me is running over 700 cfs right now – two days of moderate rain quickly melted a lot of snow (“normal” flow is about 32 cfs) Yow.

    You’re right about the weird weather – Feb has been unusually warm and I don’t care to think about what July will bring.

    I could fish the Arkansas now, but i’d have to use nymphs. That’s not going to happen.

    If I can go, I can practice casting 3 flies. I don’t care if I catch anything. I need to get out and play.

    I may throw on some RS2’s. I want to try creeks new dropper method.
