I HATE WINTER


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Brutal on Long Island with single digit temps and some sort of frozen snow ice mix that hit over the weekend.  At least I get to travel to warm climates for work and just booked a trip to Miami and the Bahamas for next week to my wife's chagrin.  Only bad part was I told her it was all work related so there is no way to sneak my clubs out of the house to play while I am down there.

I blame Obama. And those liberals. Oh and the republicans too.

I hope you shanked everyone of those

I got my Game Golf unit Friday, so naturally I'm really excited to use it.  Well, we are at the beginning of a snow storm that is supposed to drop 10-14" on us.  I know thats not a lot for you in the

I'm with ya. This whole winter thing is for the birds. The older I get the more I think about moving south to get away from this crap.

Here in Yuma, Az it's 80 all week with sunny skies. 

 

Sad part is March doesn't look much better for the East Coast. Looks like it could be more cold and snow.

I heard the some New England town police department has issued an arrest warrant for Punxsutawney Phil for predicting 6 more weeks of winter.

Oh man, Yuma.... Tolerable now. Won't catch me anywhere near there in the summer! 80 in the winter equals 125 in the summer. You can keep it. Can't play in that weather anymore than snow.

I think I'd rather play in 40* weather in the fall/winter than over 100* in the summer. But I haven't played a round in a month due to snow so pick your poison. It's 13* and snowing here right now. My goal for retirement is to find the best year round golf climate in the country. If I had won the powerball the other day like I planned to I could open an indoor facility around here with simulators and launch monitors.

It's a dry heat. 100+ is OK in the desert. You prepare for it and get used to it. But I don't do well when it's 90+ and 80+% humidity. I'd rather play in 20* temp than that!

Couldn't agree more. I can take heat. Its humidity that gets me...and I live in Ohio so its always 100% humidity.

Yes, I know. I have spent considerable time in Columbus and Chillicothe, as well as up on the lake near Catawba Island and Cedar Point. Actually, my company has its HQ in Columbus right next to OSU. I have friends that play golf at the country club in Chillicothe.

Yea high humidity is horrible. I grew up in New Mexico, and live in Colorado now, so I know about dry heat. But 100 or more is miserable hot humidity or not. The sun cooks you. And I bet 100 is a "cool" summer day in Yuma from what I've heard. Maybe I'm wrong though. Never lived there. It must be nice this time of year though.

It's fridgid here. Feels like -15*. I hate ohio so much. I had an opportunity to move to Florida about 5 years ago. Should have went. Though I wouldn't have met my wife but still lol. I have her convinced to move though.

 

Silly silly man. But, like you, I have mine convinced to move...in 5-6 years.

Well, a balmy 7° this morning, down from 70 on Saturday. We'll start warming back up now. Only got about 4" of snow. No biggie.

 

In all honesty, for the most part I like getting some snow. A foot wouldn't have hurt my feelings. Haven't had much yet. But we get breaks where it warms up, snow melts, played golf with my son in a short sleeve shirt Saturday for twilight.

 

But this stuff New England and especially Boston is getting..... Yea I think that would be a bit much.

 

Just heard the news. Sounds like we're getting back in the storm track. This weekend and midweek next week. Hmmm, maybe we'll get some snow afterall. We actually need it or we'll be worried about forest fires this summer.

We only got a hair over 7" yesterday, but it's not going anywhere, going to be -15 tonight with a -30 wind chill.

Yea, that's cold. Funny here, we had 15-20 below here in mid-November. But it's been rather mild since then.

I have a bounty on his furry little rear end.....fortunately for me all it takes for the boys in PA is a case of Iron City to get the job done.
