Angry Another “indoor Saturday”

Last Saturday we had rain and high winds. Today looks like a total washout - the hourly here shows rain for 10 hours straight. I’m itching to go chase turkeys! Wife is out of town so I have an unlimited kitchen pass and here I sit. Oh well, at least the Masters is on!

Lunch time yesterday we had at least a 50% chance of rain until 3pm and 95-100% chance of rain between 11am & 2pm so I cancelled my concrete pour at 10am today.

I get up and check the weather, nothing on radar and highest chance of rain all day is 40% around 1pm.....

One would think a weather person could at least get close at only 24 hours out!

Default Another “indoor Saturday”

I ran out to our lease just as it got light enough to see. (It's 15 minutes away, and it hadn't started raining yet) Storming like crazy now that I'm home.
All I wanted to do was check to see if it had flooded our low lying stand after the 13" we got last weekend. Luckily, the water didn't get high enough to drown the camera, damage the feeders, or wash away the blind.

From a couple of years ago before we moved the setup to higher ground.

Rain, hail, wind...I'm going nuts. I'm about to run to town, then start cooking.


Taco Soup (to freeze)
Tater Tot Casserole (to freeze)
Nilgai guisada
Masters
Stars Playoff
Horns Baseball
Rangers (Maybe)

BTW John, I just saw where your pokes beat up on Kansas last night 27-6 on the back of 12 HRs. Two guys hit 3 taters a piece.

I've jokingly asked the boss if we could start working Saturday and Sunday, and be off Tuesday and Wednesday. Beautiful weekdays and rainy weekends. Oh well, take it while we can get it. We'll be begging for it come July through September.

Yup, no bueno. Last weekend I high tailed it as soon as it started letting up and by the time I go to the lease it was blue skys and the gobblers were going crazy. Not going to try my luck today though.

We had planned to go this past weekend and set up a couple of new blinds, top off feeders, and chase some thunder chickens. Fixed breakfast, and went to Ft. Worth with the wife instead on Saturday and built a blind platform on Sunday afternoon. We'll try it again in two weeks.
