That went over us yesterday, though up north got much worse than we did. I ended up with a few inches of heavy, wet snow and we are supposed to get rain all day today. Tomorrow looks nice, if a bit chilly for this time of year. Then more rain and snow mix for Sunday.

That boom cyclone left us with 5 - 8" of heavy wet snow, but we are supposed to have 65 degrees by Sunday, which means more mud for the dogs to bring in!  And a work day to get the muzzle loading range ready for Squirrel Shoot, 26-28 April!  Come on out!  It's only a 2 day drive! (lol)

Kevin,  do you know who is putting on the Montana jam?  Thanks,

Enjoy the little things in life,
because one day you will look back,
and realize they were big things.

Hey Kyle, how'd it go. Sure hope it was nicer weather in your neck of the woods than mine.

It was good. As usual, I forgot to take pictures. Weather was cold and windy, but the shelter kept us out of it. I stayed busy on the band saw roughing out bows for the new people. We had around a dozen folks learning for their first time and a few for their second time. Lots of learning going on. I was only able to stay for Saturday, Sunday turned icy, rainy and snowy fairly early in the morning.

I didn't shoot the course at all, but it looked like a lot of fun, even if the mud was ankle deep. There was also atlatl throwing going on.

After two years with snow/blizzards, I hope the weather is better next year.

Early April is a tough time of the year in the great north. It can be 70 and sunny or 20 with 8" of snow. 
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.
