Snow Day at Backwater Angler

Winter's Day On The Gunpowder River
If you’ve called the shop this morning you’ve already heard the news. The shop will be closed today due to inclement weather. If you need a fly fishing gift, enjoy the snow and stay warm by curling up to your favorite computer. It’s easy, just whip out your Mastercard or VISA and shop securely on the Backwater Angler catalog site.

If you’d rather drop a gift certificate in his or her stocking, we can email one to you that can be printed out next to, but no too close to, the roaring fire.

In other news, NOAA has proven that snowflakes can be turned into numbers as this stark historic data set for snowfall recorded at BWI, now BWI Thurgood Marshall illustrates. Which leads to a quick question…What was BWI called in 1883?

For an easier and more enjoyable take on the same data set, and less commas, check out Frank Roylance’s article about El Nino and it’s effect on snowfall, if you’re still snowbound, and somewhat interested in the topic NOAA has another take on these “hot air over water” phenomena.

Update 12/20/09: The shop will also be closed on Sunday December 20, 2009 and will reopen on Monday.
