    Thought going to timber would be a sure bet. It was good for ducks, but the large chunks of dead tree limbs hitting the water made ya think a little.

    That wind was something else today.
    We had white caps in the decoys when we picked up
    with 4" of water.
    It was a real SOB.
    The ducks flew and many of them died.:tu
    I trashed 2 decoys and lost a new boat cushion.

    We got to see a guy tear his trailer axle completely
    off the trailer.The state dredged the ditch around the ramp
    Tuesday.
    If you backed to far to the side the wheels would fall
    concrete and get hung up.
    He slide the boat off and gave it heck up the
    ramp and the axle[springs and all] came off.
    I helped him load it in the back of his truck.
    The right spindle was at a 45 degree angle.
    Junk.:doh
