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.

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.

Completely unplanned, but I ended up snowboarding on the last day of winter, and playing 9 holes of golf on the first day of spring.  It doesn't get much better than that!

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.

    • Adding tackling to golf could make things interesting...
    • Rugby League (not Rugby, that means Rugby Union) isn't really like American Football, but it is a faster and tougher game and some of the players only wear very light padding. Most wear none. Do not mistake "Rugby" for Rugby League. My point is that if you think he's talking about tackling and you look up Rugby you'll see Rugby Union, which is a running and passing game. They don't tackle like in League. I'm not making a comment about American Football. I love it.   
    • No - but if you said that the article said that the vaccine rather than the virus caused these issues it would be shared around the vaccine skeptics within seconds. None of them would read it and it would definitely qualify as "research".
    • Day 79.  Got video today, I have to process to upload to evolvr.  I did a wall drill on video and also did an attempt at a slow swing with a 6-iron on video;  did some practice with each prior to filming. 
    • I want to see them try to turn that into a "Get the Vaccination" TV commercial.
