I tend to view your calls as conservative, not necessarily “pessimistic”. Many times, the shitload of factors that have to align to maximize ANY setup aren’t all there. So conservative is often accurate. It’s always easier to dial up expectations than to dial them back down.
And it’s easy to look like a “low baller” when your back yard jackpots ALL THE TIME this season.
As much as it pains me to say, I have checked about every box for this winter and am ready for spring. Had thundersnow, thunder sleet, an incredible snowpack, and a bitchin’ ice storm. But there are fish to catch and golf to play. Let’s Morch it.
