The New Year, 2018

New Years Eve. The usual routine here at our house has been the same for years. We choose a restaurant, that has been the "Ninety Nine" for years. A good meal is enjoyed and then its back home. I will put on a couple of discs, Bennett, Martino and a few others and listen until the late hour of 10. Then it's lights out and another year closes and a new one begins. New Years Day also holds a tradition...it's our annual 1st day fishing meet. In years past we have been fortunate to have a great group get together and try to put ourselves on the board for the New Year.

This years meet will take place here. The weather will be cold, predicted temps in the 9 degree range. So I hope your New Years Eve traditions hold, and I wish you the very best for a safe, prosperous and healthy 2018.

  9. As you know Alan, fresh water as a saturated liquid (liquid in equilibrium with ice) can get no lower than 32 deg F. The Brookies are much warmer than you and don't have to deal with wind chill. Stashtlivy novy rok (happy new year).
