Then over the holiday's, we're down  in North Carolina. Who knows? 30's to 70's. Then we're back in Ct. and it's at the indoor place until spring.

Wish there was an indoor place here. Only option is a crappy simulator at the pro shop.

Played what I imagine will be the last round of 2013 on 12/4.  After a period of freezing temperatures we had a brief warm up to 50 degrees or so.  There is often the odd period in mid-winter when we have a 3-4 day period of unusually warm weather and once a decade or so we have a winter like 2011-2012.  Typically, however, there is little golf played in SE Michigan until March.

 

Time to start planning a trip south to warmer climes.

Had our first snow fall yesterday so I"m guessing that's a sign that its time to put the clubs away. Can't complain, though, we've had a pretty mild fall here so I had the chance to play a lot more in November then I was expecting.

Finally broke down and gave the clubs a really good cleaning and put them away for winter. :(

Will keep the practice clubs in the car for any unseasonably warm days though.

Seriously...pocket warming isn't enough.   I've shattered enough balls over the years to know better.  Modern balls really get brittle....

Suppose to be in the 50's today.  Hopefully all the snow will be gone by the end of the day, so I can play either tomorrow or on the weekend.

You have a crap attitude.

Try switching balls every hole, or do what it takes to keep the ball at a decent temperature

 

If that doesn't work, keep your balls closer to your balls.   That'd work.  ;-)

Winter in Ohio is bad enough, but my place of business closed it's doors 2 weeks ago so now I'm out of a job too. Pass the pistol please. a4_sad.gif

Anybody up for a swim? My pool's there somewhere.

Been there. Two different times and 18 years apart I lost really good jobs that I thought would be there until retirement.

 

Things usually work out OK and sometimes for the best.

 

Good luck.

Last few days were in the 40s, so I got to get out and swn the clubs a little bit one day. Sadly, it was back in single digits today.

Playing tomorrow, :beer: , supposed to be close to 60 here in No. Virginia.  Can't wait, been having Golf withdrawals!!!

Any other fellow NC'inians on the board? Guess we have it pretty decent...winter weather on any given day can be from 20s-70s...its pretty insane how up and down it can be in a weeks timeframe. Earlier this week was 40s, this weekend is 70s, then early next week back to 40s lol! I have already played 4 times this month. With work during the week my only options are Saturday and Sunday (as im sure is the same w a lot of you) so I just sit up all night and pray those "warmer" days happen on the weekend. The real kick in the N*$'s is when its high 60s and sunny on a wed while im slaving away in the office and the approaching weekend is 30s and raining.

How to beat the winter woes:

  • Attend your local golf shop's Christmas party. You might win something really cool in a raffle.
  • Hit the gym: Work on strengthening your hip flexors and increasing lower back flexibility so you can start quick in March.
  • Get  your income tax done by Valentine's Day so you can chart your "discretionary funds" for the coming year.
  • Act for the future! Don't waste time reading things like Winter Depression Thread :-(
