I went out today; felt like I got nothing out of it. Can't run up, can't putt. Felt pointless. Then the hand got cold and I lost my grip strength. I think it was 7, felt like 0 or lower. Nasty wind. And that is the coldest I have played in. Will be using big mitten stuff with hand warmers next time. Hand warmers in pockets is not enough.

Any colder or wind would have ruined my outing. Just good to get off the couch, no real aha moments in my round either. The only thing I learned today is that my mako III has beat In a bit through a summer of regular use and likes to go right . It used be my right up the pipe laser, with small hyzer Finnish. I have to hyzer flip if throwing any further th 200 with it. It doesn't spike to the right , but just keeps gliding gently to the right on 75% or more power. Could be usefull if I can get the feel for it. My wasp is slowly becoming my go to mid at this point. I can trust it not to turn over, at all,ever, but it can be shaped nicely around stuff. It can also handle full power better than any other mid I have for230 ish drives.

I keep a glove on my off hand, but my throwing hand just goes into my fleece pocket jacket pocket between shots. I never use a hand warmer, and I've never had a problem. We gotta toughen you guys up.

I was trolling the Trilogy page last night, and they were talking about not going out below 40...one kid even said his dad won't let him go outside at all if it's 20 or under. What's wrong with this world?

I'll play in most any temp. However, given my bad knees, lotsa snow or ice would deter me.

Trudging through 2 feet of snow at 5 degrees made for a perfect day out there yesterday. The key? Warmers in the boots.

I was hitting all my lines, approaches, and ran at the basket a few times from 100+ out. It helped for me to remember snap and spin, and stayed over the disc a little more. Winter is perfect to slow down that form.

I've wussed out the last couple of days - Single digits, fresh snow, and brisk wind have combined to take the edge off my desire to go out alone on my lunch break for a quick 9 holes.

If this stretch of below-zero weather here doesn't end soon, I'm going to have to play in it. Gotta feed the monster that my disc golf addiction has become...

In International Falls, I'm pretty sure any temps over zero are considered shorts weather.
