    Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    Everybody at work was in such a great mood today including myself. It really has been a downright depressing stretch of weather, going back to October it seems.

    Post Arctic front snow Tuesday, Jan 29

    Was just thinking the same thing. Although, it seems that points east of Raleigh tend to do better with the ULL surprise snow

    Agreed, have to consider that basically every system we have had lately has over performed in terms of qpf

    Before we take you back to your regularly scheduled programming, we have a developing story in the newsroom. Watch as the disco thread goes from sanitarium to obs and banter. More on this at 10.

    Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    I tried playing a couple of Saturdays ago (I work until 5 during the week.) It was like playing on soup. We quit after 9 because it was so wet. I LOVE playing in the summer, but only at 7 am or 3 pm. There's nothing like a quiet evening finishing up as the sun sets while the shadows peek in, and things start to finally cool off. Usually the winter is fine here and there, but with the dormant bermuda not transpiring, a half inch of rain is worse than 2 inches on active turf, so this winter has basically been a complete no go. Spring is hit or miss but there's nothing like that first warm Saturday on the course in early/mid March, and I'm ready for that. Of course I will take snow, it's one of my favorite things to look forward to, but based on how things have been lately, I'm gonna find something else to look forward to. Also I just got an entire new set of clubs from top to bottom, so that is fueling my golf bug a little bit more than usual. I'm heading down to Orlando for a work conference/golf week in early March which I'm absolutely stoked for.

    Yeah how hard is it to keep in here? Having said that I miss the golf course like crazy. I am fine if I don't see a flake this winter and we get an early spring.

    Yeah. When I moved here from Greensboro I didn't really understand the magnitude of I-85 climo because it never affected me. It's painful as hell

    This is my second winter in Matthews, NC. I have yet to see more than a half inch of accumulation. A lot of us south of 85 are due for a monster

    I’m in Matthews as well. Hope we don’t have power issues

    January 12th-13th event

    Agreed. If a quarter lands on heads 10 times in a row, the odds are still 50 percent on the 11th flip.

    2019 Banter Thread

    Yes Keatts is one of the good ones. We finally got what we were looking for. We played hard to the last whistle so I can’t complain. The Gott era sucked. He was definitely a Grade-A greaseball. Game was pretty sloppy, but you have to be happy with an ACC win on the road vs a top 25 opponent. Always good for the resume
