Nothing like a blizzard and high winds to usher in the season. My neighborhood only got a few inches of snow but evidently some places got buried. The winds were strong and biting. The weather report claimed the gusts reached 50 mph.
Six hardy (foolhardy?) golfers braved the elements yesterday right in the thick of it. On the drive to the course and for the first half hour we got a mix of rain and snow and it was punishing. Ice rain blowing sideways sucks. Then it got a bit colder and it turned to snow and ice crystals, which was much more tolerable. Once we got into the woods and winds were somewhat blocked it was easily tolerable, even enjoyable.
We were the only ones on the course. I felt sort of like a mountain man, battling nature, but aided by the best high tech gear available. Afterward, sipping a victory Sierra Nevada Pale Ale on heated leather seats, it was worth the minor discomfort.
So how hard did you get hit? Did you play in it?
