Average Golfer Season Officially Over.

Try as I might, I couldn't extend the golf season much past this in these brutal climes. I suppose being just 20 miles south of the Canadian border had something to do with it. Strangely there have been years when we played in December. The "just right" arrangement of the planets has yielded some 50+ degree temperatures in the past. Not this year. Highs in the single digits have mothballed my clubs for the next 3-4 months. I can't complain though. I spoke to my youngest son, who lives in Bozeman, MT. He had three times as much snow and it was -29 F. That's proverbial brass bra cold.

Lift, Shovel, and Place Rules In Effect Until Further Notice !

Chipping with foam balls doesn't quite have the same allure. Of course it will seem a tad more attractive in March when winter starts to wane. Then the unexpected/predictable April snow dump will discourage us for a few weeks until...........Viola! Spring rises again.

Throw another log on the fire and find the spare pair of long johns.

Til' next,


  1. Great pictures - ugh! That is a lot of snow. Reminds me of Angel Fire. I noticed that you've got ads for 'how to break 80' and am curious if you've tried it and if it actually works.


  2. Haven't tried the ad. Google randomly places them.

    The easiest way to break 80 is to spend 80% of your practice time chipping, pitching and putting. Boring, but effective.

    Or, you can do what I do. Stop after 16 holes.

    Thanks for the visit!

  3. So you are driving a Volvo. So am I.

  4. Ha! My son's Volvo. He lives in one of the apartments attached to my house. I drive a Subaru. Notice which one made it out that day?

    Thanks for the visit.

  5. I see. :-) You to go after the new XC 60.

  6. Ah, too many $$$. I'm frugal when it comes to autos. Autos only.
