Saturday morning I got up early, put on my long johns, dressed quietly, made my lunch, grabbed the dog, slipped quietly into the garage to hook the boat up to the truck, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour. There was snow mixed with the rain, and the wind was blowing 50 mph. I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad throughout the day. I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed there I cuddled up to my wife's back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered, "The weather out there is terrible, but I made it." She sleepily replied, "Can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that weather.."
