It hasn't been warm enough to rain for the past month.  I don't know how you guys lucked out.  You are higher in elevation; should be colder!

We have a snow day, then it's sunny and cold, then another storm comes through... repeat for 3 weeks!! It's getting old.  I think on Sunday we will set a record for low temperatures in March...  9º.

Picture taken this morning... "I think it's going to be great day!"

Living in Indiana we haven't had snow in two weeks, but the frost has to be around a few inches deep. Problem is we keep freezing at night and barely getting above freezing during the day. The next two weeks we will be well below average. My guess (as a meteorologist I've been targeting around mid to late march for the first sustained warmup... and then maybe a week for courses to start opening up. That puts us somewhere around late March or early April.

I took over as tournament director for our annual oil and gas conference. Attendance had been lacking over the last four years and so I was given the task to turn it around. I got attendance back up, people were excited, sponsors started opening up their check books. To top it off, the high in Austin, TX on Saturday is 75. 

Good thing the tournament is on Monday...and the high is 41 with 15mph+ north winds. I'd be surprised if a dozen folks showed up.

All cities in the Mid-Columbia region of Washington/Oregon have broken records for snowfall in February.  Here in Kennewick, WA the old record was established in 1916.

Tri-Cities 24.0"
Yakima  30.9"
Walla Walla  27.0"
Pendleton, OR  29.2"

BTW, I shoveled the driveway again this afternoon, and it's snowing again tonight for another 10 hours.  💩

Courses in my area are rescheduling tournaments.  We usually play most of February and all of March, but with 2 feet of snow and temps in the teens and 20's for the next 10 days, we won't be playing until at least late March.

If it all of a sudden warms up, there will be flooding with the record snowfall.

Most would agree that March is the start of spring. On that note, Happy F****** Spring!

Well, thank you!!!  Posts of golf courses and sunny weather are depressing when I have snow on the ground.

Your post shows that it's not that bad here.  Your highs are my lows.  Single digit lows this weekend means the snow isn't going anywhere for awhile.

Could be a banner year for the Columbia Basin Lakes trout fishing.  I always looked forward to the spring openers over there; Dry Falls, Lenice, Lenore, Dusty, Grimes, Quail, and a handful of other lakes. In any case, the extra moisture is always good for the eastside.

We have a great snowpack this year, so farmers are happy.  It may be quite awhile before the ice melts on some of the lakes.

Any indoor places? I’ve found some relief from the crap by going to them once and a while.

 

Not really, I could always go to a local golf store and "test" some clubs, but otherwise the the closest place would be about 2-3 hours away.

Stupid snow. Last bunch had just melted and got a good 3 inches last night. Another 3 tonight then a huge storm rolling through Sunday/Monday. I’m ready for winter to be done...
