Mercury is climbing up near 70 today. I went out for a run, felt like I was part of some massive jog-a-thon. :fuckall

Hope you all are having fun playing 6-hour golf.

Oops, sorry, played in 2:20 ahead of the tornadoes.

I knew that. Heck. we have days with frost delays once in a while here, and when you show up at 11:00 for your tee time, there is still 5 groups ahead of you that couldn't start on time, but are starting ahead of you who thought you were clever enough to book a tee time after the frost is gone. :fuckall
I'm gonna go low this time...

Played in a charity event today out in Yucaipa. Was 37 degrees at the shotgun start. There was some sort of icy glaze on the fairways. Short game showing some signs of life.
That is pretty darn cold for you sunshine loving Californians. What did you wear? Ski parka, mittens, electric boot warmers?
I don't have that stuff, just wore 6 polos and peeled them off as it warmed up.

Feeling pretty dang California over here this weekend. Really feels like the climate is changing, the local climate at least. Feels silly now to make any association between NYC and harsh winters. Mild is more like it, with only occasional dips below freezing. Not like the NY tourism board needs it or anything but they could use this to attract more visitors. For people who don't live here, it's probably much warmer than they think.

Winter has arrived. I put the clubs back into the basement. We will struggle to get above 32 degrees the balance of the month and periodic snow is in the forecast. It was a good January with 3 rounds. Time to get the discs out of storage.

@bkuehn1952 Yes, it has been a good January, but here in Maryland, we are also looking at a big change in the weather forecast, similar to yours. Yesterday was over 60 degrees and sunny. Had a great round. (My 10th of the month, btw.) Played well.

Today the high temp has already passed at 6 this morning when it was still in the low 50s. Though it's only supposed to go down into the low-mid 40s today, the wind forecast is for gusts of 40-50 mph! And those winds are ushering in some long term cold air. Daytime highs in the low 30s, with teens overnight. :fk

Sooooo, I suppose if I want to get in any more January golf over the foreseeable future, I'm gonna have to pull out the cart cover and fire up the propane heater. I had to do it already a few days last month, so I got this.

As long as I can get in a round or two a week now, I'll get through this. If not, my SAD diagnosis will only intensify, which may require some pharmaceutical aids. :facepalm

Briefly considered going out but there is a gale warning. With so many big trees around it doesn't feel quite safe. Besides I would have to bicycle 8 miles through the wind and the golf bag creates a ton of drag. Not in the mood for that shit right now.

Cold with snow today, changing to rain over night. Starting to wonder if NY area has seen its last blizzard for the foreseeable future. :bored

Played yesterday and I guess you could call it golf. After an inch of rain the three previous days course was as sloppy as I’ve played in. Then add +20 mph winds. Tough. But it was 60 degrees in January do what the hell.

@GBOGEY2 Wish that 60* would head out this way. Haven't been able to play here since last Wednesday due to cold and wind. 40-50* forecast later in the week. Hopefully then.

Mud sucks and wind sucks, but I have gotten used to them both. They still suck though.

Crappy conditions over here too. Similar to Doug. Cold, wind, mud.

Prime winter conditions coming later this week. :thrust Here is a prediction: February golf returns in 2020. Even in the Mitten.

Played today. 36 degrees, little wind and mostly sunny. Damn, I didn't even use the cart cover.

Swing way off to start, after 6 day layoff. Got things syncing up nicely by the 6th or 7th, though all my layers did not allow much swing freedom. Headed out tomorrow too. 46* high forecast.

@DougE I'm calling it. The 200 rounds of 2020. Has a nice ring to it.

I'd be playing today if not for a) the dry split near my thumbnail that I got from whacking too many bawlz earlier and 2) gayass winter weather. It is actually too nice. Everyone (and their dad) gonna be out there.

@legitimatebeef No excuse for #1. I have, as of this moment as I head over to the course, bandaids or med tape on 7 different dry splits on my fingers. Seven! I wake up in the middle of the night with burning pain from them all. So don't give me any shit, #1 is no excuse. Wear a glove on both hands. I do. It helps. You still feel the splits, but at least the bleeding stays inside the gloves. Works for me.

Now, #2, well, I get that one. So I'll cut you some slack.

I'll be out there today for round #13 this first month of the year. 35-38* the last two days out there and I didn't even use my cart cover. Today forecast for high-40s. Balmy!

Since it's not urgent I thought it best to heal up rather than exacerbate the split. If that makes me a pussy then so be it. I can take the criticism from a sea captain.

@MattF if i'm ever in a no choice, back to the wall situation I'll reach for the super glue. :up

@DougE do you ever use neosporin, or other topical pain relief?

I use it under the bandaids. Doesn't really seem to help much.
(I feel like we've had this conversation before. Deja Vu?)
