Typical Michigan winter day....

We received about 3" of heavy snow last night.   Today the temperature rose to the low 40s with rain!   It is suppose to be colder tonight to create the usual slip and slide.   The next two days are forecast to be in the 40s with night time lows below freezing.   

This wouldn't be too bad if we had some sunshine!!!

We got this last night.

It's gonna be 50 on Thurs.  Can I find a place open and call in sick?  Would love to even just play 9 right now and I never like to play just 9.

I keep looking at my wedges I got for Xmas and need to go try them out.  Looks like below freezing on the weekend so Tiger Woods 2013 on the Xbox it is..... sad, so sad.....

I haven't been able to watch golf or touched my clubs since I played in December. Winter is killing my drive to play... I think I have 2013 TW on PS3 and no interest in that either... :~(

Currently 44 and going up to 50, tomorrow's high is 58. Assuming all the snow melts from my patio I might be able to get out and take a few swings to loosen up and see how my neck is holding up.

I will probably change out my worn soft spikes on my two pair of golf shoes.  I haven't transferred the equipment/clubs to my new bag yet.  If there is an opportunity to play in January-March and it is sloppy, I don't want to introduce the new bag to the courses under those conditions.  Aiming for about 4/1 as the change over date.

Next will be swapping out some worn grips.

When I get really desperate, I likely will sort through the current ball collection, assigning the nicked up and off brands to the shag ball collection.

After the rain last night and the predicted higher temperatures today/tomorrow, our snow cover will be pretty much gone.  I like our chances of possibly having a few Jan/Feb golf days.

It's obviously low enough that you can walk in it.  Paint your balls black (or put on your warmer kilt) and get to the course.

 

This is the time when my father used to don the cross-country skis and hit a tennis ball.

Painting your balls black and wearing kilts sounds like a little too much of a good time to me. Must be a northern thing. 

:-P

Woke up to -29 Celsius (-38 C with the Wind Chill) weather, Oh Canada. At least it didn't snow much so I didn't have to clear the driveway in the extreme cold this morning. April can't come soon enough.  Side note... My chipping off of my basement tight lie carpet is getting a lot better (5 Ball challenge, closest to the space heater :-D)... nothing wrong with 6 months of short-game practice!

Do a long warm up.

Bright sun! And above freezing temps for only 4 hours a day...So the greens probably won't thaw until we can get a few days in a row over 40:angry:.  I want to keep playing and it's so close to be able to just makes it frustrating.  By the way, 3 hours down I5 in portland they have tons of snow.  If it's gonna be cold, snow! If not just let me play.

I guess I will spend the weekend making some built in bookshelves around the fireplace... and then remind my wife about that all summer long ;-)

Yes we have a lot of snow here. Unusual. I've more or less given up on playing until March. I still have the (covered) mats though. Better than nothing.

50 plus the last two days here. It was 52° at 2 am. here. I didn't try play anywhere outside yesterday but I did play indoors. Wrists were killing me and I couldn't hit driver for $#!t. Do you have snow @boogielicious

Supposed to be 56 next Friday in Lansing, MI.  Now it's just a matter of finding a course that will actually be open.  May have to settle for a range session.

I have a tee time for 9 AM tomorrow ... and it snowed last night.  Well I guess I'll just go to the gym and workout instead.

I would've preferred walking while chasing a white ball around, but I guess Mother Nature has different plans than I.

A dusting of snow here in the UK today - I have been able to get out most weekends but struggling to get playing partners sticking to tee times because it is so darn cold, and those that do only want to play par 3 courses :( So another par 3 it is tomorrow - I have just got my hands on some new thermals and am looking to pick up a new putter from the pro shop tomorrow so that might cheer me up, oh! And I am off to the island of Menorca in July for a round with my son so well pleased at the prospect of that. I really need the weather to sort itself out, I am getting properly depressed, I need shorts, obscenely bright polo shirts and sunshine on the golf course now please.
