I understand that some of you have snow and real crappy weather already but it's wet and cold today, that deep in your bones wet and cold, I have had enough. I understand that 45 degrees and raining is not cold by Buffalo, St Paul, Chicago or Minot standards but it sucks for North Carolina. Since that's where I am, that's the standard I am using. Where's 100 degree day and a hurricane when I need one. Little bit of global warming would feel real nice about now...
Is this a form of a weather troll? Remind me to post next summer when it's 80 and sunny in Buffalo and NC is 100 degrees with 95% humidity....

No Troll,

I was working from home Monday and it was raining. Got tired of spreadsheets and data reviews so I went out in the yard to throw. It was raining just a bit, threw some test discs to set up a winter bag and just figured I would start a thread about the conditions.

Figured it was more interesting than threads on players, disc, rules, scores or form.

I like playing at 100, no back ups on the tee pad. Played at 103 this summer, was out in Texas for 2 weeks.

I like playing in snow, I just don't want to do it everyday.

Spent a week in Syracuse once for work, snow coming off the lake that week was brutal. Landed at the airport at night and could not see the parking lot from the inside of the terminal. Car service guy called me and said "just walk straight out to the curb, I am parked 100 feet from you." Never seen snow that heavy before. I could not see the car at 100 feet. Next morning, sun was out, snow piled up all over the place and everybody going on about business without missing a beat. Pretty awesome really. That's when I realized that snow would be there until March, it was December 12th.

Only thing cooler then that was a Minnesota trip, I went there to do some work and the parking lot was loaded with snowmobiles, not many cars. Never going to see that in North Carolina.

He's not a troll at all. Someone posts this kind of thing every year. Usually a Californian when it's 50 below in the north or something. It's better than the soon to be bumped discs with ribbons thread that I suffer through for 6 months of the year. Speaking of ribbons.....

Temperature 'feel' is strange. If it's been 80, then 40 is friggin cold. But if its been below 20, I can't wait until its 40 so I can go play.

Also - Plastic Thunder - Nice Avatar! I got me a pair of suggies too! My kids play with them EVERY day without fail.

The first day I wake up and it's near freezing, I immediately recall 10 months before when it was 50 degrees colder, and instantly feel warmer. I flip the switch to winter mode real fast.

Travel update, was minding my own business when my manager called be and ask about Binghamton NY. 2 hours later I am booking a flight, hotel and a rental car for Monday. So, bet it's colder up there. Taking the bag, planning on a Friday morning round before I fly home.

Played my first snow round the other day and loved it. It was ski gloves between shots and wet cold disc all day, but had a blast. Maybe the novelty will wear off by mid-December lol. But for now it's cool with me.
