Ahh, it would appear Americans do the same as Brits. You used centigrade to for the cold temperatures, and Fahrenheit for the warmer.  

It didn't break right.

Five inches of snow hit on Friday before it really warmed up and enough of the snow was still there on Sunday to make it impossible. There would have been a window on Monday if it weren't for work. It has rained ever since.

Just one more day and I'd have had a chance.

-4 this morning but not much wind. Already feels better.

We're going to be in the 50s by Sunday and that has the wheels turning.

Is it possible for the ground to thaw enough to make golf happen?

I was on the course Tuesday (2/5) less than a week after our polar vortex visit. The ground was thawed to at least 2.5 inches as I could push a long tee all the way down.  The city's executive course only has 7 holes open, weather permitting, so we went around three times.

Amazing how a bit of sun and warmer temps could work their magic so quickly.  Yes, much of the turf is a soggy mess but I have seen a lot worse.

Yep. Walked around in the yard between the snow piles on Sunday and thought the same thing. 

The incessant need to make money is all that kept me off on Monday.

We've had freezing rain the last two days.   All schools have been closed.    There have been two school days in the last 9 weekdays.

We don't.   Most Americans don't have a clue when it comes to centigrade temperatures.   All reported temperatures are Fahrenheit.

Wishful thinking 😂

Montreal gets down to - F temps then all the way up to 50 is freakish but possible...

We got to freezing last night in So. Cal. but it’ll likely get to the 60s in some places.

Weird weather swings these days.

What the heck, it's your rainy season anyway. I was in the wholesale wine business for 30 years, and was working the market w/the sales mgr. of a winery in Paso Robles. She asked if we had a rainy season. I said yes, we call it the calendar year! 

“Seattle rain festival” Jan 1st to December 31st . I was given a T shirts by my cousins living up there as a kid because I complained about the early morning fog in Berkeley 😂🤪😂

Well, I'm up to 6 weeks of not playing golf outside of the range or simulator. Looks like that's set to continue, since we got another 6 inches of snow yesterday. It's been a frustrating winter for golf. Normally, we'll get enough melt and nice days that courses are open a lot of the winter. Most courses have been closed about a month now.

Hoping that the spring weather will be milder as a payback for the winter being pretty snowy.

Yeah.  It has been frustrating this winter.  Seems like just when we get enough melt to have some courses open, it snows again.

Hoping it will warm up next week when I am back in town to play.

Hit up eBay for a pair of used rain pants, a rain jacket, a beanie and a pair of golf gloves for use in the rain. You're good to go. When you play in the rain there are no crowds and it can be very serene. And make sure there's plenty of single malt scotch in your flask.
