Weather in your neck of the woods?

Heat index is going to be 109 today. Local course is offering $35 for all you can play with a cart due to the heat/humidity, it's tempting but I'm not gonna risk it.

I played today with temp at 93 with humidity off the charts (index 100+).  Yep walking these days and getting back out there in the morning and doing it again.  🏌️‍♂️  

Take it easy mate. I'm a walker but I'll be riding today. Heat index here is supposed to be around 104°.

My wife and I went out this morning while it was still a bit cloudy and the temp was lower to practice chipping and pitching. Scooted back to air conditioning after about 30 min. Note the heat index.

A sprinkler head on #4 at my home club was struck by lightning Friday afternoon during a massive thunderstorm that dumped more than 2 inches of rain in less than an hour.  The lightning strike left a crater in the ground nearly the size of a VW Beetle and blanketed the surrounding area with an inch of charred dirt/sand mix.  It looks like it snowed an inch for 100 feet radius around the crater.

I have to admit, I didn't notice the damage while playing over the weekend which is a testament to the staff at the club.  They had it cleaned up nicely by yesterday afternoon.  

A picture of the damage is in today's local newspaper.  I tried to copy the image from the newspaper website but they have it protected behind a paywall.  I will try to get one from the GM this afternoon.

We’ve been in the upper 80’s and 90’s since May with indexes in the upper 90’s and 100’s. It’s just something you deal with in the south. Playing in a cart isn’t so bad, walking can be a bit hot though. It’s funny listening to my family and friends up north talking about the heat. They’ve had hot days for a bout a week and they can’t do anything outside because it’s too hot. Here in the south I have to mow my grass at  8 pm when it’s still 88° outside with 80% humidity, hoping that the sun is low enough that it doesn’t beat you down.

LOL!!  My wife wants to help mow the lawn (exercise), but she's still working.  I start mowing around 4:30pm, mowing around all the curbs, trees, things in the yard, etc., then she gets home and mows the middle of the yard.  Total time about 90 minutes.  The problem is it's 100º when she gets home.  I'd rather mow all of the yard at 8am when its 75º than 1/2 the yard when it's 100º.

After a couple of months where the weather has been miserably hot and muggy, I looked on the weather channel and saw this:Screenshot_20190723-204455_The%20Weather%20Channel-01.jpeg
That's 57 degrees in the morning, in Tennessee, in July! I might have to break out a light jacket in the morning. It's crazy, but I'm not going to complain.

First time being in the 60’s since early late April early May it actually feels pretty nice outside. If I didn’t have to work I might spend some time outdoors. Probably golfing
