The South will be shut down again due to snow

Yep, hasn't even started snowing today and most of the schools closed last night. Forecast for my areas is 1-3 inches.

Hey southerners - looks like us northerners are going to share some of our winter weather with you again!

 

Stay safe!

We are getting a pretty good amount of snow right now here in the Charlotte, NC area. The difference from the south to the north is that I will be golfing Saturday, probably in shorts.

All the schools in our area closed last night. They made the right call this time.

Forecast is 55 Saturday, 65 Sunday. It's perfect. Get some time off work for snow, then play golf 2 days later.

How's that for South Florida? We had accidents all over the place this morning because of black ice.

 

It will be back to 70 on Saturday.

 

The last time that it was this cold here was when Kenny came for a visit. :)

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

The worst part is Southerners don't recognize and know how to deal with black ice. Nasty, nasty condition[emoji13]

It's not only a driver issue but also the lack of equipment (state or city). I've seen cities in the south shut down for what we'd consider snow flurries up north.

Very true! What they called snow in FL couple weeks ago we'd call “heavy Frost”.

I've been in FL for 6 years and I believe this is the coldest one in that time.

Actually, I'm not sure we are dealing with "Old Man" winter.   Being old myself, if Mr. Winter was that old, he most likely would not be able to create what we're currently experiencing.   Such requires the dexterity of a younger source.   Perhaps, Old Man Winter is letting his up-start grandkid sub for him this winter allowing him to relax until next year.  What we are experiencing may be "Young Kid Winter".

Our home town in CT has a lake that was always used for winter ice skating and hasn't frozen for last 10 years. Well it froze over this year for skating. Seems “young kid winter” is kicking in[emoji16]

Speaking of Spring... what is the weather like in Rochester, MN around March 17th and are there any good courses?

As a former resident (Prior Lake, not Rochester) I'd say: COLD, probably still snow on the ground. Highly unlikely you'd play anywhere except a muni that might be open, IF the weather would cooperate. Ugh; don't miss that weather...
