Hell, you don't really need that to not go shopping on Black Friday, but I do appreciate the excuse! I and my buddies have played the day after Thanksgiving, the day after Christmas, the day after New Years Day, and any other day it got warm enough to play.I remember one Winter where it was quite cold, but didn't really snow very much. During the "January Thaw", as we call it, we had a day get up in the upper 50's. We hit an area course that was open that has a lot of lakes on it. They were all frozen over, so we could pretty much disregard them.

It’s raining here this week. That’s the equivalent of a major blizzard anywhere else in the country. People start freaking out and driving off the road. Meanwhile I am watching the Weather Channel in hopes it will be clear enough to tee it up by Sunday.

It's been snowing since yesterday.  I am hoping the snow will stop sometime today and will all be gone by Sunday as my tee time at 10:46 is not looking good.

It was suppose to be just dusting of snow, but already it is about 2" by the golf course and about 7" up in my place (7400 ft of elevation).

I have not seen this much snow this early in the season for over 10-15 years.  It will be great for snowboarding, which I may be doing on Sunday if the courses are not open.

Gotta make lemonade if life throws you a lemon...

My buddies and I are going out everyday it is above 45.  Ole Man Winter is knocking at the door in the DelMarVa.

Just got an e-mail from a local club that says it's supposed to be 55 this Wednesday. I'm calling my buddy tomorrow to see if he wants to book a tee time. If the forecast turns out to be wrong, screw it! We just won't show up!

Currently snowing here in Ohio. 35o F at the moment. Tomorrow is supposed to get up to 45, and I am planning on playing sometime around 11. I just hope the rain and snow we have/had today doesn't make it too sloppy. If it's awful out there it might just have to be a range session.

Hope it melts fast.  But the forecast does not look promising...

It may stick around until January or later, honestly. I think the pile I made plowing my driveway is nearly 6 feet.

The 10+ inches of snow we received on November 11th is all gone.  My buddies and I played yesterday.  At around 9:30am it was 40 degrees and when we finished at 12:30pm it was sunny and 52 degrees with -0- wind.  An all around great day for the end of November.  Things do not look especially nice going forward but at least there is no significant snow forecast  for the next week or so.

No golf happening over here. We had a months worth of rain in about 48hrs. Parts of yorkshire still under water including the aptly named Fishlake. Really feel for those people affected by the floods.

I'm very glad i live high up and nowhere near a river, stream or canal.

I was out with an idiopathic disease for 3.5 years. Grow a pair, you wimps!!! 🤣

 

And yes, I’m going to play this annoying “I was out for X years” card on here til it’s worn to shreds so get ready for that 😜

 

Oh yea and since I’m technically an annoying golfer again, lemme give you guys some unsolicited advice. This is a great opportunity to eat your optimal diet and to get into the gym or rehab if you have some nagging issue like tennis elbow or something. April is really just right around the corner and what better way to kick that off than to be physically ready to go on day one? 💪😀
