Well, it is pouring rain and only in the 50’s. So our furnace decides to quit working. Out here in the middle of nowhere. Jim is out in the rain and mud trying to figure out what’s wrong. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I do have the little electric heater running.

Also, no fish yet. He’s had two days of being able to fish but nobody is catching, at least not walleye. They’ve caught some Northern and perch but the guys didn’t keep them. We much prefer walleye. Even the fishing guides are getting discouraged. The water is too cold and this rain sure doesn’t help any.

Several rigs pulled out this morning.I’m sure they’re worried about being trapped here with the water running over the road in several places. However, tomorrow is supposed to be a pretty good day – only isolated showers. So hopefully that will dry things up a little bit.

We had to relevel the rig because the passenger side of the coach had sunk so far into the mud that water was getting into the furnace area. We’ll see how that works. We let it dry out over night and this morning it seems to be working again. Yippee!

Now if Jim and Bill could just catch some fish.


  1. I'm not going to tell you that the sun is shining beautifully here.

  2. uhh? Excuse me. I am in West Texas and it has averaged 105, all week. Plus, we have had no rain since Oct. 2010. My buddy says the God is mad at us. So, I have tried to appease Him but I don't think that is the reason. So, if you could please send some rain and cooler weather, we sure would appreciate it.

  3. With the rig sinking like that I'd be afraid of getting stuck !! Been there, done that, don't want to do it again !!

  4. I'd be worried about sinking too deep to get out. That wouldn't be fun. But, If the fishing is good enough, it might be worth it. :)


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
