    Early Departure

    THE MUD IS COMING
    We're Trying To Beat It
    report tomorrow

    -------
    .. Can't tarry: this is the time to be nimble and cagy about where to fish. Everything should be blown by tomorrow. Records will be set.
    .. It's finally Spring. It looks to last for 48 hours. Then - full blown Summer. There are even flowers in the meadows. Green is beginning to predominate the vistas.
    .. Out the door, coffee in hand, doughnut in cheek, destinations in mind.
