Whispering Woods had to turn more than 200 people away today. They didn't have tee times. People were taking tee times up to 5:30 even though they knew they'd only get 4-5 holes in. Crazy!

Oh, then I guess I owe you an apology. 
I thought you were experiencing such weather right now. 

Okay, you don't suck. Anyone else who gets to play golf all year round and never has to deal with shoveling loads of white death off their driveways sucks.

chet, I've got clay on my shovels.

Tuesday was perfect, today is looking better!  Course is still coming around from an especially wet winter but greens are like counter top and receptive.  I don't have to search ballmarks, it is right there with the ball.  (although fixing others' is pretty constant).  My little course is almost crowded during the week - very unusual.

It will be a while before I can get back on the course again.

In parts of the High Plains, this could be an historic snowstorm. Here's our latest forecast. - Articles from The Weather Channel | weather.com

It is beautiful out this week, but I have a big audit going on at work and have to work late, so I won't be able to get out and play.

At least I got to play 9 on Sunday when it wasn't quite so nice out.

After a long week of work, I snuck out early and beat the crowd and was able to walk 9 in an hour and twenty minutes, which isn't too bad for an old, fat, bad golfer.

I live in a place where I never have to worry about it being too cold to play.  It is only ever too wet to play, thanks to the solid monsoon from June to October/November. I really struggle during that time period thanks to no golf and other outdoor activities being reduced. Any tips on how to practice/swing in an apartment.  When I am based at my home in Coorg, on a coffee estate, I have the space and ability to hit balls and swing without issue

Maybe something like this if you have limited space:

And I thought 29F with 30 mph winds here was bad. 

It was so windy, I was almost blown off my bike. Kind of hoping to play yesterday and this week, but too cold and rain is coming.

Eh, it's the Reds... they're going to finish last anyway.  Now they have the "snow excuse".

We have cold & scattered flurries here in SE Michigan for the Tigers' Opening Day also.  Crappy weather is the norm for Opening Days in Detroit.

    • I can send you some club head covers if you like!  😁 They look good. Hope you love them. 
    • Played a local course a buddy runs. Temperature at tee time was 19F.  Hardly any snow on the ground. Previous experience under such conditions has taught me the ball will land and bounce like it hit a concrete parking lot, best off playing a links style run it up game. So the T300s stayed home. Out came the "other" bag with my beloved Yonex ADX tour blades. Threw in a Mizuno Grad 1 iron for tee shots. Brought along one wood, my trusty M6 9 wood just in case I had to go over the wall to get  out of jail. Hit the ball well, knocking down everything shorter than a 6 iron. Got a lot of bad bounces, and a few good ones. Shot 87, which Ill take considering I was wearing Thorogood work boots and could barely feel my hands on the back, Despite winter gloves between shots. I guess I'm getting a little old for this much fun. lol

    • Man, those look nice. I love shiny things.  
    • Thursday and Today were 77-75. One birdie Thursday and two today and some solid play! This is following an opening year round of 85, so I am no longer a danger in harming myself! Today was really some good golf, nothing forced, played windy and rainy, just a solid round.
