I guess this period would be considered our dog days of winter.
And so the cycle continues. A trip cancelled, one made while the weather window allowed, and another hoping to be rescheduled when the conditions allow (since the wind didn’t cooperate).
Hello all. I hope everyone made it through the storm and its aftermath safe and sound. The shrieking wind of the storm and the days after put us in the deepfreeze. That led to some jobs not opening, schools being closed and more time around the house.

The fall trout season will get under way next week as the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife begins stocking rivers, streams, and lakes across the state with thousands of large, two-year-old fish on Tues., Oct. 10.
