    I'm gettin' robbed...two weeks ago I was still out in the boat, fishing at night with just a pair of shorts and a hat on. Barefoot like Huck Finn on the Mississippi. Now I gotta wear flannel shirts and hoodies , long pants and windbreakers. . Dealing with temps 10-15 degrees below normal, and winds coming this week like Novermber fronts. New rule on this site!!!! No more ****** happy faces in posts about "OOOHHHH, I really love this ****** weather" :mad:

    Now it would be nice if the sun would actually appear and dry things out a bit. Has been in very short supply around here - cloudy, damp and cold ever since the hurricane.

    Why?

    The storm still seems very tentative:

    Hazardous Weather Outlook
    National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ
    405 AM EDT Tue Oct 23 2018

    This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for central Delaware, northern
    Delaware, southern Delaware, central New Jersey, northern New
    Jersey, southern New Jersey and southeast Pennsylvania.

    .DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

    Hazardous weather is not expected at this time.

    .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.

    There is potential for frost or freeze conditions on Thursday night
    in areas where the growing season continues.

    A coastal low is expected to affect the region this weekend.
    Considerable uncertainty remains in the timing and track of the low
    and resultant sensible weather impacts to the area.
    However, there is
    potential for strong winds, coastal flooding, and heavy rain, which
    may result in localized freshwater flooding. Stay tuned to the
    latest forecasts.

    Because almost every day has some factor that intrudes on my fishing. If its not raining, its cold. If its not cold or raining, its windy.. I realize that everyone goes out and walks in the woods and to them this weather is welcome But try sitting in a boat in the middle of an open lake in these winds. I can almost bet that the average temp this month is way below normal. But really I'm just b****ing :bang:

    Well, except for today, which is turning out very nice, it will not be getting out of the 50's during the day for the foreseeable future, maybe until April ;). Fishing should pick up as the possible nor-easter develops over the next few days. It's all up to Willa.

    We've yet to experience a day this season that I'd consider cold. Brisk, yes, but cold? It hasn't happened yet.

    Plenty of puddles out there today. A couple were pretty deep. The rain is postponing some of my visit to various places.

    There have been virtually no acorns at all in my oak-pine woods this year. The difference is really striking compared to other years, almost never heard them dropping on the roof or car. Was looking at a branch that blew down, and the acorns are just tiny immature buds. Aside from the squirrels, could this mean a rough winter for other animals?

    No acorns means a mild winter. A late falling of them indicates a late winter. Nature has her ways
