Default Snow and Failed Attempt

Tried to hit the ice this morning, but the weather would not allow it. Took 40 minutes to get to Windy Point from Golden. Roads were bad at 4:30am

Probably a good thing. Left from Colorado Springs at 5 a.m., got to a blizzard in Woodland Park at 5:50 a.m. Ate breakfast at Hungry Bear and hit the road at daylight to help out. Made it to Antero at 8:15. It wasn't bad in 4WD going rationally slow and avoiding the speeding ski-nazis.

The sun will come out, tomorrow. Bet your bottom dropper that tomorrow, there'll be fun ...

Man, those skier crazy dudes are everywhere! And they say I'm crazy to go ice fishing - it's more dangerous dodging them than fishing on thin ice!

4 wheel drive doesn't mean 4 wheel stop, just not worth it.
