On Monday, it was snowing when we woke up and it was snowing when we went home at the end of our workday. Some time before we went to bed it stopped, but I’m not sure when. When it was all said and done, it was reported that Columbia, Missouri, received over 7 inches of snow on March 14, 2011.
But today was a new day. In some ways, it fell like a whole new season. Today, we woke up to sunshine (well, maybe partly sunny), we hooked up the boats and headed to the river to set trotlines and gill nets. This gear will sit in the river over night. We’ll return to the river tomorrow and tonight we’ll dream of the gravid pallid sturgeon we hope to catch.
