What is the proper way to hit a ball when it is snowing sideways?

This is in theory the second night of my league.  They called it at 10:00 am because of "cold rainy weather".

I just got back from lunch and it was snowing.  I know in the wind you swing easy to keep the spin down, is there a rule of thumb for snow.  Looks like I need to know.

Wear a beanie, warm gloves between shots and swing slow and through.

Hit it after downing 2 Hot Toddy's. Then you won't mind the cold or where the ball goes.

In your house on the carpeting.

Hot Blackberry Brandy and coffee or tea!

Or just nuke some Scotch and you're all set.....

I'd stick to playing the 19th repeatedly.  But I'm a Florida sissy.

Orange or Yellow golf balls.  Clean your spikes frequently as the snow builds up quickly.  Chip or pitch balls as rolling a ball on a snow covered green will create a build up of snow on the ball until it falls over sideways (like a small tire with the ball in the center).

 

I hope you were just joking about playing in the snow!

Not really joking but it appears the snow may be done in Michigan, hard to say!
