Never been to the pacific Northwest. 35 degrees rain/snow mix in WI is perfect for this time of year. Would prefer snow though. Rain gets you soaked. Snow can be brushed off and you stay dry. Anything above freezing, temp wise, is kind of ridiculous to me to complain about. When it's over 90 degrees in WI (which is basically never), I'm out golfing.

^ When the beer freezes it is too cold for beer.

I don't mind outdoor activities on the coldest days Maryland offers (-5 to -10F) but I like to ease into winter. One Xmas we took a family trip to Puerto Rico. December bodysurfing with our boys on the San Juan beach was great, but we came home to a cold snap and I never adjusted to winter that year.

It's warmer now, but 2 weeks ago it was 25 in coastal MS already--and its rarely below freezing here any given winter.

Major storm is imminent here in the Twin Cities with 7"-12" in the forecast

Will make for an interesting Wednesday night league. Leave the glow tape behind, bright LEDs are the only way to go...with 3M Super 33+ tape

People complain about the traffic and the homeless and the price of living...but what's y'all's coldest month? February? That's just the Winter Time Open for us. 2019 was a little wet (still shorts weather though), but here was 2018's:

. . . wildfires, mudslides, earthquakes, flash floods, air pollution, water shortages, soil salinity, tsunami risk, and perhaps most worrisome . . . Californians.

I kid, I kid. I enjoy visiting NorCal and SoCal. But all in all, a little winter isn't so bad.

Boomers complain about cold weather a lot. Are you a boomer? Once you get acclimated it is actually very pleasant to be out in the cold. It's the process of getting acclimated that people don't like. It takes a little effort. So at the start you need to quickly get out there and after two or three baskets you're good. The toughest thing about playing in the cold is keeping your beer from turning into a slushy at the end.
