I don't mind being out in the cold. I'm happy to shovel in shifts and take it easy on my old back. 

If I miss the opportunity to shovel in shifts and too much of it collects that's when I use the snow blower.

I know you’re joking, but that would be really easy to do if I actually wanted to spend all day outside in the cold.

My favorite is after you’ve shoveled for three hours, you wake up to a fresh two inches from the “snow showers” overnight.

Typically here in Ohio, our first dose is going to be the wet transition stuff. Anything after that will be the powdery stuff that is a lot less of a problem. If we can avoid ice, a  little bit of dust isn't going to bother me much.

Well boys and girls, keep those snow shovels at the ready. Punxsutawney Phil just said there will be six more weeks of winter.

I can't believe that he's still a thing.   It's 6 weeks either way!   Just tell me when it's golf time!

So, wait, he saw his shadow so we get 6 more weeks of winter. So winter will be over on March 15th??? 

If he didn't see his shadow we'd have an early spring??? What does that mean? For many folks March 15th is an early spring. 

BTW - Did you see all the PETA people complaining about Punxsutawney Phil? They are asking for demanding we switch to an animatronic groundhog. 😝

Promise a big enough donation and maybe you'd get a PETA person to pop out of the hole.

It’s always golf time. Just need the proper footwear, spikes snowshoe, or in Western WA a kayak. Switching to a tennis ball is optional.

If PETA agrees to that, can we play "Whack the Mole" with them? whack-a-mole-pic.jpg

Maybe for the first time ever. 

After all, you wouldn't be hitting a poor woodchuck or whatever that thing is.

One of my best purchases was a really nice snow blower, at 66 it’s a life saver.

I've always done all at once.  Just go out once and get it all done.

Depends on the size of the snow storm. If it is like 1-4", then I will wait. If it's more than that, I will try to do two snow shoveling. So, most of the time its just one time. A lot of time, I just let it sit in the driveway and melt.

    • This comment makes me think of Mid South #2. 😉 I assume you remember driving the green in fourball at 2017 Newport Cup.  Pretty sure that was a longer carry than this one lol. 
    • Just got home from Wisconsin.   Again, thank you @cipher and @iacas for setting this up and running this trip. I had a fantastic time and it was great to see most of you again and to meet some of you for the first time. The courses were amazing, and we could not have ask for better weather. The most rain we got was a few sprinkles today for like 3 minutes. 
    • Yes I know. We’re celebrating it.
    • Did you end up checking it out?
    • You know some people pay good money to be spectators at events like these. 😂. I have a friend who thinks I'm a slow player because I always get to the course after him, take two practice swings as part of my preshot routine, and use Aimpoint when putting what's m whereas he just hits and takes a look at his putt for a second or two before putting.  I don't think I'm a slow player but maybe i am 🤷‍♀️. That said, generally speaking, i don't have a family or anything i have a specific time that i have to get back for so a 4-4 5 hour round doesn't bother me as long as we're not stop, go, stop, go, stop, go.  If it feels like we're in rhythm then i generally won't be bothered bc the round won't feel like it takes a while.  I guess playing at public courses generally on weekends when you know it's going to be filled with ppl just makes me expect that a round won't be less than 4 hours.
