Valentine’s Day started out really nice at noon the temperature was in the high 60’s and by 1:00 p.m. the dark clouds started forming and by 2:00 p.m. the temp had dropped down to the 40’s and with the wind it seemed colder than that. It was reported that the temperature for February was an average of 8 degrees lower than usual, which wasn’t any big surprise to all of us around the Bend.
Bad Bob’s Bend Store reports that some nice catfish and some large carp have been caught using night crawlers and he has the pictures to prove it.
