Default Snow and gumbo.

Well, it's snowing here this morning with 4-8 inches forecast for the valley and 10-30 inches in the mountains. This means eastern Montana, where I will be hunting antelope next week, will have gumbo which will make dirt and ranch roads impassable. The good news is that, the forecast for next week is temps in the 60s, and perhaps those roads wil dry out a little by then. Keeping my fingers crossed!

gumbo? i thought that was something ya eat in New orleans?
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Onehorse, if gumbo is what I got into in Colorado then I understand the road thing. Red, sticky,clay like muck. My trailer tires got so loaded up with the stuff that they quit turning and just slid. At 12,000 ft that wasn't much fun.
