  • helmsdale's Avatar Oct 14, 2020 | 20:22 4 Will be interesting to see what happens here in a couple days with NOAA's 1/2 month seasonal predictions. The one produced on Sept 17, had the northern US grain belt in for a below average temperature, but above average snowfall. The boundary lines do not extend into canada, but you can envisage the bubbles, and it wouldn't be a stretch to think that the southern prairies in particular would be in for the same.

    Who knows. Update in a couple days...

    Anybody know what pig spleens and astrology are saying these days? Reply With Quote

    Did I mention it's really dry here? Reply With Quote

    I've had a few people tell me the muskrat houses are twice as big as normal so we are in for a cold winter. Then a friend that snares coyotes told me the coyotes aren't getting the coat they should so he figures a warm winter is coming. So there you have it, mother nature says 50/50 chance of winter, better than any other forcast I've seen. Reply With Quote

    But there are only 2 kinds that predict the weather they are a Tenderfoot and a damm fool. Reply With Quote

    Lots of wasp nests here but all around 4 foot up.

    Never heard about that before. Interesting Reply With Quote

    No water anywhere so NO muskrats either! Reply With Quote

    Oct 15, 2020 | 09:16 11 Interesting about the wasp nest theory. I jus came in from opening day moose and elk and saw a lot of nests. All were four feet or less. What is bizarre is the wasp queens go underground for winter. It’s not like the wasps sit around in their nest for winter so the correlation is interesting to me.

    Coulda shot a cow moose, but meh, first day. I wanna hunt. Reply With Quote

    The sloughs are sinking away quite fast around here and some of the rat houses are on mud no where near the water line now.
    Amazing how fast the water recedes,almost no rain in AUG,sept,oct nothing more than showers , snow 2 days ago but just enough to make things white for a couple hrs. Reply With Quote
