I was thinking yesterday... this new snow probably wouldn't ruin my good lines, I should get out and toss a few... then as John mentions I started to wonder "what would the neighbors think of THAT!!"
In Seattle I had a big lawn and every time I would tie up the dog by the collar and throw a stick to test a new drag out the neighbors would honk and it would take a while to live it down. Eventually, the neighbors would hustle over to take a few casts themselves!
Glad you got your electricity back Terry. Now let's all work on getting the boat thawed out. Hope autumn goes out like a lamb!
