I just came in from loosing some arrows on the 3D boar target in my backyard, and it felt great outside. The weather is currently 67 degrees, and tomorrow it’s expected to be in the 40’s. To some, it may seem strange being excited about the weather being in the 60’s but let me tell you why. 3 weeks ago on my day off of work I drove an hour to hunt and by 9:30am it was already 97 degrees. Last week the weather got cooler but it was still 87 degrees. So now, the temperature is where I like it! There’s just a great feeling about being outside shooting a longbow with a quiver full of arrows in 60 degree weather.

Darren, it must be nice hunting in a light coat and pants. This morning it was 18 and a high of 27. It keeps you alert in your tree stand.

A few years ago, a prominent magazine did a very thorough research to find the world's most perfect climate.  Their conclusion was San Diego!  Being that San Diego is the greatest city in the world for archery (according to jaz5833), why not relocate there? 
I am looking out my window now (here in western Washington) and lament, "Rain! Rain! Rain! I'm sick of Rain!!!"
Maybe I'll call jaz and few feathers, and they can help me relocate!  All of you weather complainers might want to give them a call, too!!! [smile]

I think it would be pretty boring, if we didn’t have the weather to complain about.

that cold front went south of me by about 80 miles at least the snow & ice.
 got up to around 45 today, got to shoot a couple arrows at the bag, makes for a good day.
 northwest Arkansas is pretty good year round.
 lived in northwest Washington first 12 years of my life so understand that rain, rain, rain statement.

A fella named Albert Gore, the inventor of the internet, and a fine citizen of Tennessee has been making a pretty damn good living preaching about the evils of global warming/climate change. He is kinda like a tent revivalist. 

However, day after day...week after week...month after month...and.......year after year...wherever I go...whatever I do...it doesn't warm up.  Not even a little bit.  I can live in Wisconsin.  I can Live in Minnesota.  It doesn't matter. It stays cold. 

Gents, I need some of that warming Ju-Ju...
