Just when you thought it was safe to go out on the golf course!!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

This weather makes me want to vomit! Most courses in my region (Niagara, Ontario) were set to open next week and then we got dumped on again last night. The Weather Network called for a trace of snow followed by immediate mild temperatures but that's not the case. About 5 to 10cm and it's below zero again. This winter will not loosen it's grip and I've had enough. All I want to do is hit some balls outside!!

 

I'm very grateful that we have an indoor range here but it's time to hit some outdoor ranges and play a round. This winter has been especially brutal.

Amen, brother.  What's ironic is that the weather could just as easily be sunny and 65 in our area.  Why do we always seem to get the s&it end of the stick?

 

Woke up Wed morning to 6" of fresh powder in NE Ohio.  Great if your a skier!  And yesterday (Sat) another 5" of the wet slushy stuff that froze to ice overnight. 

 

Will it EVER END?!!!  Sheesh!

Wind and moe wind then wind on top of wind. Walked off the course due to wind. Would rather be snowed in than fooled by wind.

I hear that. Chicago area here. Hoping that the courses will be open on Tuesday. But on a positive note for me, I'm moving to San Antonio in 3 weeks, so no more snow for me. I feel for all you guys waiting for this winter to be over though. I'm going stir crazy here.

That's what Niagara looked like 2 days ago but it is all but gone now. The temperature is at a balmy 9 degrees Celsius and it's supposed to be 15 degrees tomorrow. All for nothing though because it's supposed to drop back down to 3 degrees and we're getting more snow. Wet snow but wet snow is still snow dammit!!!!!!!

There are mountains in NE Ohio?  Or are we talking cross country?

No mountains.  We have a couple of large HILLS where kids ski.  Guess I could have skied down the driveway Sunday morning to get the paper from the box after the 5" of slush turned to ice.  Point is, it easily could be sunny and 65 and we could be out golfing or at least hitting balls.  Since December we've seen avg daily temperatures 15-30 degrees BELOW normal.  Like everyone else in the east and midwest, just venting along with the rest.

 

C'mon WARM WEATHER!!!

Haha.  This is why I moved to southern California when I was 18.  I grew up near Philly.  Winter golf is 65 and sunny.  Summer golf, stay near the coast and it's 80 and sunny.  And you can drive 4 hours and be skiing at Mammoth...  Yes, minor gloating :banana:

I know huh, I HATE THE WIND!!! All winter long wind wind wind wind. Not even really enough snow, just wind.

 

I played Saturday morning, and it was calm until our last few holes.
