  1. March Discobs Thread

    Interesting all these comments. Played 18 holes today and the cold was not bad. Winds were minimal.

    What is the most frustrating and/or depressing, IMHO, is that both Amer Wx and DT started honking this storm over a week ago and at least DT said because of the "block" this was a mid-atlantic storm; no way it can go north to NYC or Boston. And now, we are expected tp get bupkis and Boston has a WSW and could get a foot or more!

    I agree. Played 18 holes both yesterday and today, and once you got to noon or so (past the early morning chill), it was quite comfortable out there. Much warmer feeling then playing in 50ish degrees in January.
  4. January Discobs Thread

    In Canton this morning, the sidewalks were super dangerous to walk on and the cars iced up over night. The center of the streets seemed okay but saw at least one car who could not get out of a diagonal parking space due to ice. Also, when we tried to back a car out of the garage onto an alley, we could see the rear of the car almost sliding into the wall across the alley.

    Visiting my daughter and grandkids in the Canton area of Baltimore. Had to go out to my car to get my bag.Wow! Sidewalks are unbelievable but street is just wet as are the actual cars.

    Wow!. No need to go south in the winter to golf anymore. I think I played eight rounds of golf in January, including yesterday. Only one where the ground was frozen and could not get the tee in the ground. Much rather have had to shovel my driveway eight times!

    Not me. As somebody who recently retired I cannot count how many rounds of golf have been rained out since the end of April (like Saturday and Yesterday) or when I do play being subject to a lot of "plugged" shots. One of our courses is Zoysia and I think that just won't dry until we get the sunny and 90 degrees.

    CWG recently updated today to a "5" because of the unexpected nice morning!

    The human body can be weird. Like you, I went 60 years without ever being allergiuc to anything. Now three years later, I take Claritin every day and seem to have a constant runny nose. And since I have been in my house for 30 years, and golfing at the same club for 20 plus years, it is not like there is anything new in my enviroment.

    Wow! Sweated on the golf course today. Almost a three gatorade day. The bigger news is that the snow pile in the street in front of my house survived another day. I am guessing tomorrow will be the end.

    Or get in a round of golf. Course will be wet but should feel nice to finally get out!

    Another easy to follow article. I really find reading them helpful in summarizing teh models and understanding the logic leading to the forecast.

    Wish the Kennedy Center did that with its performances Friday night! Do not want to take a chance on driving home around 10 or 10:30.
