No benefit here in NE OH either! Snowing a blizzard about now, and the next two nights are forecast to be in the single digits! All I can say about the groundhog is that he's a stinking, low life, lying rodent! 

Not any better here in NE Iowa.  Still have several feet of snow and it was -13 on the way in to work today.  -27 with windchill.  High of 7 deg today.  Looks like there will be a lot of freezing rain for the next couple weeks......

4 below zero at 7 AM this morning.  On the news they said it's been 60 years since Denver and northeastern Colorado has seen temps this cold in March.

1 year ago today I golfed.

Right now it's 16 degrees, feels like 6, and we have 2 inches of snow on the ground.

I see a high of 50 forecasted for next Monday. Spring is coming.

We got a foot last night. It was Winter Storm Scott! 

I blame myself. :-P

Yeah. Usually this is mid-January weather in Denver area. Ugh. No golf this week — again.

A week ago I was in Orlando golfing at Grand Cypress.  Today I had to get my Starbucks through an open door because my windows were froze shut.   🤬

Below zero this morning (March 5th) again in Central WI. We've had record cold for March so far, after having record snowfall for the month of February. The "funny" thing is that we had almost no snow on the ground up to the middle of January, and I was optimistic about having an early start for golf season here. Normally, courses open up around the week of the Masters, but we'll have to have a lot of warm days in a row for that to happen this year.

March 5th, and will not reach 30's until this weekend in central Wisconsin. I've been reading a separate topic here about "Hip Slide" to start downswing. It makes a lot of sense and could possibly explain some recurring problems with casting. Can't wait for it to warm up so I can incorporate some of this information. Until then, I'll have to settle for watching the pros on TV.

I'm kind of new here, so I'm not sure how to do a "link", but if you Search "Biggest Secret Hip Slide" at the top of the page, it should be the top result. I think it's an older thread, but there's a lot of posts and some logical descriptions about "how's and why's".

It got all the way up to 36F today.  At his rate, I might actually find a chance to get out and play before the 1st of April.

Looks like it's almost here.........  Weather is going to be in the mid to upper 40s for the next couple weeks.  With as much snow as we got this year, that will be a lot of wet courses (and a few flooded ones) for awhile as the snow melts.  Extra water hazards......

 All the snow SHOULD be gone by April...........  I'm Impatiently waiting !!!!!

Seems like the "Winter of our discontent" is slowly, but surely, coming to an end. Supposed to be mid-50's tomorrow. Also, I'm starting to get e-mails from some local courses announcing that they are opening soon. It all depends on the Sun. A few days ago the high was forecast to be in the low 20's. I'm puttering around the house and took a look out the window to see ice melting! Wait a minute! It was only supposed to be 22 or 23 degrees today! I walked outside and that's what it was! But, it was a clear day and the Sun is high enough in the sky now that you can start to feel the heat from it! I just closed my eyes and stood there for about 5 minutes, letting the sun shine on my face!
