It was 1° when I dropped my kiddo off at school today at almost 9am.

In previous months they'd have a two-hour delay on such a day (kids waiting for the bus could get frostbite or whatever), but my wife thinks they're almost desensitized to it now. :P

Florida bound on Saturday, woo hoo!  Getting away form the crappy weather.  Going to be playing lots of golf. 

I haven't shanked a ball in months.

That's it Gator & Spackler!!! I'm gonna buy a 2004 Buick LaSabre and drive it down to Florida, find out where and when you play golf, make sure I get ahead of you in traffic with my Michigan plate

I'll take that 1° ( -17° C )

Photo: No thanks

The above image was predictions from Thursday. It actually got to minus 44 on Saturday. Awful......

This is what I meant a few pages back when I said we here in Massachusetts don't get the extreme cold. I can count on one hand the amount of times we've had a high of less than 0˚F this year, and it's been a pretty darn cold season.

You should be good. Supposed to warm up into the positives in a few weeks.

The vacant field across the street from the building I work in is still covered in ice and snow, but more weeds and long dead grass are starting to show up sticking up out of the remaining snow pack.  When I can walk across the field and onto the adjacent golf course and find a few lost balls, then I will know that Spring has arrived and that the courses should slowly begin to open for play again.

Very glad there was no measurable snow in Philly this morning. My elbow is just coming around and I didn't want another round of shoveling.

Ouch! That might even be too cold to ski.

Hmmmm??? Might ?  I say it IS too cold to ski.

Call me a wimp, but I don't like to ski below 20 *F.  Even then it has to be calm and no wind whatsoever.  And preferably sunny!

Spring cannot come to NY soon enough.

Now you're just bragging... 51 is excellent!

Weird spring like snow here last night. Very wet big flakes that froze into a crust when temps dropped. Had to scrape my windows with a metal blade I used to remove old glued down carpet with this morning. Will be gone by days end with the high in the mid 50's later. May sneak into low 70's tomorrow, though the forecast seems to change every minute depending on who is reporting it.

I dislike you Dave.  We are commiserating. You are bragging.


Lol sorry. No matter how nice it gets here the courses are in poor shape until late April maybe even mid May. Tempting as it will be tomorrow I won't be out there. Maybe Sun but doubtful. The busiest and slowest I've ever seen courses is during the late winter, early spring. It's the rush that brings out everyone and their dog. I've been out enough that I've already tired of 3 putting holes I play well do to shaggy greens. I've got a lesson this Sat, that's enough for me. The happiest creatures here will be my dogs, I can finally pick up the you know what.

    • Welcome to TST. Many of us have gone through a similar journey as you. I enjoyed all the lows and all the highs. Have fun!
    • Alice Cooper got some demons under control by playing a lot of golf, maybe it will work for Manziel?  I don't think he'll make the PGA Tour.  Best he can hope for is a DQ from a KFC Tour event, thus following in Jerry Rice's footsteps. 
    • Day 10.  Rain outside meant I couldn't do the speed sticks, so I had to make due with 8-iron and 6-irons, as per usual, off the mat, into the net, while indoors.  Two sessions of about half a dozen balls each (and about as many minutes each time).
    • That happens all the time time to me. Having such a powerful swing destroys golf balls.  Back in The real world, the only time I see damage like that is frOm a lawn mower. 
    • Lesson today. Worked on a few minor backswing things and then transition priority piece. The gist of it was MORE PALMAR FLEXION. Also tried some different feels for getting re-centered over the ball at impact. The feel of moving my head toward target slightly seemed to work best. Feels odd, but much improved “covering the ball” on film.
