...or is this weather insane?

I had packed my gear and was half way to the Cape this morning before I realized it's the middle of winter!!!!

It's not just you. I went out at lunch and my mind immediately started to think of stopping at Walden on the way home from work. Reality stepped in when I remembered that I don't have a rod in the car. :mad:

This weather also makes me wonder "Why did I spend my canoe fund on a snowblower last summer"?

Not just you - I was scouting the Ipswich River and Fish brook Sunday.

We hit 67F around 2:30 p.m. in NYC today.

Also, flying in from the west coast yesterday the views of upstate New York were spectacular. Given where we were this time last year, there doesn't apear to be that much of the white stuff higher up the Hudson Valley. We have a ways to go yet but maybe the Hudson spawning season will happen earlier this year. I think it was late April / Early May lasyt year before the water temps got up to the magical 50F.
