We had just got back home from going to help a nephew deal with his wife's death; expected from cancer, but still no fun. It had poured buckets while we were gone. The wind blew about 30 mph for the next two days. I tend not to go out and try to cast in wind like that.

When the weather calmed down I hiked into a pond. It was way too wet to try to drive, because any place there was a depression there was water standing. Even walking I sank down in the mud that was under the water.
