Yeah, I'm a sissy these days! Played Old Pike glow doubles Monday night and I've been sick ever since. I rode CW all the way to a win at least. Just don't enjoy it like I used to.

Craziest WW glow round ever had to be after the ice storm in 2002. The storm was on Wednesday and glow was Thursday. We finally had to quit because we couldn't make it up the hills after things froze solid again. Lucky no one was hit by falling branches that night.

I'm more likely to go out in certain extremes - oh, it's freezing rain, I'm going to go throw, I bet the baskets will be beautiful covered in ice Oh, it's -100 winchill, I'm going to go throw just to say that I did.

I don't like gloves and always lose them. I have found that hand warmers in the pockets work great. And yes, layers! A couple of shirts, a down vest, and a windbreaker is enough for about any weather.

YES!

Also, "I'll bet there's NO ONE on the course today..."

Glove on the left hand (RHBH), hand warmers in pocket for the throwing hand, FTW!

Living in central West Virginia, I can usually still go play every one or two weeks without playing below freezing. If I lived somewhere colder, I might adjust my standards. Also, snow is stupid (when disc golf is concerned). I'm not so worried about finding the discs, mainly just keeping my footing and the snow making the discs feel like ice. I'll have my hands nice and warm in my pockets, pick up my disc, then immediately have my fingers start getting cold. So I try to avoid playing in the snow.

In late November, we call that that a 'warm streak' in Wisconsin.

Can't believe you cracked a disc in 37 degrees! Sucks, yo!

Back when I was throwing RHFHs with X-Clones (maybe 1997?), I once split an X-clone down the middle on a tree in January. I honestly don't remember what we did; it may have been doubles and we played my partner's better shot or something.
