1.) It was once again, a very chilly start to a Friday here in the Tar Heel State. The official high was 45 here in the Concord/Kannapolis areas, but I'm not convinced that we hit just 45. I checked the temperature at 7 AM and it was 42. Up in the mountains, a good formula to find their temps, is to take away 7-10 degrees from Charlotte's temp and that is a good general way to get say, Boone's or Asheville's temperatures. From what I heard, the protected valleys up in the mountains briefly reached the freezing mark, and in other spots, some reached a degree or two below freezing! If we are hitting the 32 degree mark this early, Winter might be a good year for us snow and cold lovers. The saying "cold weather will turn to warm weather" will happen this weekend, as we will be up in the upper 70's and low 80's.

2.) Fishing is not the best right now because of the low water levels. If you find a spot, where the water levels are giving the trout a break, by all means have at it. Fish along the seams, in the riffles, and runs, and you should catch a couple. The trout will take a # 16-20 BWO nymph, # 16-20 Copper John, as well as small green caddis patterns. Any small nymph in sizes 14-24 should make the fish at least turn around and look at it. Stay low and use light tippets and you should be fine. The 10 day forecast isn't calling for much if any rain over those 10 days.

3.) Panthers play on Sunday at 1:00 against the Kansas City Chiefs. I really don't have any idea as to who will win. The Panthers can be very unpredictable, but they should leave with a win. Jordan Gross is not going to play on Sunday, which is a tremendous loss.

From Panthers.com
Tackle Jordan Gross will not play versus Kansas City after suffering a concussion last week, ending his streak of 84 consecutive games started, the second-longest in team history. "It's (injuries) part of the league; it's part of the game," head coach John Fox said. "We've dealt with it before; we'll deal with it again." The Panthers options to start at left tackle include Frank Omiyale, who would be making his first NFL start, or Travelle Wharton, who replaced Gross following his injury against Atlanta.

4.) More Later.
