Default Mid January, mid fifties.

Above average temps in Colorado for January and a great day at the course with the family. Not everyone was as excited as my self but my wife, son and daughter joined me this afternoon for some dg. The local pitch and putt fits the bill for family outings with the longest hole being around 250. My 13 yo son went with his tomahawk all day and found a few birdies. My wife made some breakthroughs with nose up issues and found some better than average drives. She even parked one with her buzz for a tap in bird.
My 12 yo daughter was the least excited about playing disc golf today. She was throwing really well with her light weight kite and skeeter. She was even hitting and holding anny lines. On one tee shot she got all jazzed up and gave me a running/jumping high 5 on her way off the tee box. On another tee, she parked a 150ft skeeter right under the basket and informed me not to mess with her! She also reminded all of us that the tee box was hers because she birdied that last one......
I experimented with different discs/distances on thumbers and we all enjoyed a sunny afternoon in the middle of January, in Colorado . Same weather on the way for Sunday. I will be playing some more dg, even if it means I miss kick off for the broncos game.

I might need to make a trip out there. I'm getting a little tired of the snow here in Steamboat. Apparently we have more snow than anyone on the continent right now. I guess the west coast is having a really bad year.

Awesome post. Sometimes it's hard to appreciate the best moments as they're happening. Here's to many more.

Hey bob, the north west high country has been getting hammered with snow. It was nice enough yesterday that the attic built up some heat, and the attack heat seems to permeate into the house after the sun gos down......I slept with my window open last night! The average high temp is prob around 40 this time of year, but hits 40 four about 10 min before the sun starts to loose elevation and temps quickly fall . It's not uncommon for a front to move in from the north and have temps below 0. It also seems like the weather patterns sees it's high midweek and another cold front hits for the weekend...... Not this time Last weekend I improved my local course record to +3 in windy conditions. Maybe I can finally post an even par round today. Wish me luck, cause I'll need it to find even par at badlands.

50 degrees last weekend here in Buffalo but we had that blizzard early in the week so all the courses were just icey, muddy, flooded so I just wandered around playing the holes that were playable. I almost prefer calm 30 degree days. Solid ground, dont have to wipe my discs down after every throw and I dont come home covered in mud.

I played a 20 degree round earlier this year. If there's no wind, it's not that bad. I managed in a hoody an snow boarding pants. The snow boarding pants were a bit much and I was sweating my butt off. Just keep the dogs warm.
