BAN HIM!

 

Oh wait, we've reached our limit of one for the month. You get a pass. :-D

 

I was gonna play disc golf this morning with my brother-in-law. I passed mainly because I need to get work done, but "mainly" only means 51%. The other big reason was that it's not cracked 40° yet… it's not like yesterday where it almost hit 50°. And tomorrow we're supposed to get 10-12".

 

Yup.

Here in Rochester, NY it's going up to 50° today & back to 30 tomorrow where it's expected we will get 8-12" of snow. Thank god for the sports dome down the road so I can keep working on my swing while mother nature figures out what season it is.

Trudged my way over to the adjacent golf course during lunch at work, snow is still over knee deep on the hillsides, and the exposed ground off the course is very muddy and soft (sunk in up to 4" into mud on the field next to the fairway). The course itself is still mostly covered in snow with a few patches of grass starting to become exposed.

(Note: I was not sinking into the fairway, I stayed on the edges for the most part so as not to mess up the course.)

Wait, you actually played in this? Our courses are simply closed until April here in NE Ohio. No questions asked, you simply cannot step foot on the course. Some of the nicer courses have their clubhouses open year round with dining/drinks and simulators, but the course itself is off-limits.

Nope, not played, simply walked over from the business park at lunch.

................somebody always has it worse........LOL

Hello?




It's always deeper somewhere else...LOL


Is this pictures from Norway???

This year the golfers here in Norway looks to be inn for a real amazing season. 2013 was the longest season in years, from April - November, and now in 2014 many of the courses open this week! Woho, hope this will be the norm for the years to come. If not wanna move to Florida or something. Just need to find myself a job, im quite good at flipping burgers! Im so sick and tired of the winters and weather in this country. The normal summer with over 20 degrees Celsius is two months, Juli and August. Sure hoping for some global warming or something :l

I even cant find white ferrules for my new wedges. And all the equipment in states, I could just wish. Had to order the 12 ferrules from the US. The price was 10 dollars, the postal was 30 dollars and the taxes was 10 more! And people wonder why we Norwegians get depressed :k

Car thermometer hit 70F today. Could have worn shorts to the range. I bet we're going to "transition" straight into summer. No pleasant spring. a4_sad.gif

@iacas They're calling for 12" here in NE Ohio... and it's all heading your way. Just figured I'd give you the "live update" that I can't even see outside of my office window right now. This morning it was gently raining and around 40° at 6:30-7AM. Then the rain stopped at 8:30 AM... and gentle snow began to fall for about 2 hours. The last 90 minutes have been a damn blizzard and we've easily had at least 2" of fresh snow in that span of time (estimating 2"/hr throughout the next 6-8 hours). Time to invest in a mini putting green I guess. :censored:

I am also not looking forward to a 2-3hr commute this evening, which is what they're estimating for travel on I-71S, 271S and 77S from downtown Cleveland to Akron this evening. I'll need beers to calm down when I walk in the door for sure.

Oh it's already here. They've already cancelled all after-school activities.

We're getting another 30 CM tonight and tomorrow. Hopefully this is the last dump of the year. 

post #609 of 874

I've been using this website quite a bit..

 

http://www.myforecast.com/bin/expanded_forecast_15day.m?city=19327&metric=false

 

 

It has been giving a relatively accurate 15 day extended forecast, and so far its looking like the last one for the Boston area.  We'll see.

My course opens back 9 on Friday, and the front 9 next weekend. Woo Freaking Hoo!!!!!!
post #611 of 874

Waiting to see how much if any snow we get tomorrow.  We got word today from the home course super that the course still has some snow on and is frozen in areas so it's at least 1 - 2 weeks before it will be open.

 

So much for getting a round or two in before Myrtle Beach trip.  Guess my warm up rounds will have to be on a simulator and mats. :cry:

post #612 of 874

Spring showed up for a few days down here but I had things to do and never got to play and take advantage of it.

 

Now winter is back again. Maybe this will be the last of it.

 

I wander out in the yard and hit a couple hundred golf balls every day and it seems like I'm hitting the ball better than I have in a couple of years so I'm getting anxious to play and find out.
