The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Am I the only Snow Bird that is showing signs of going coo coo?

Or could my wife possibly be right, I've taken disc golf too far. The snow is really getting to me. We normally get about 35-40" of snow over the entire winter here in Northeastern Wisconsin. With the last snow storm that left here a couple of days ago we're over 70" for the winter and we have another month or two left in the snow season. We received about a foot of snow in the last week and it's gotten to the point where I'm hanging up my quads until the snow goes down. Until then I'm left to sit indoors to watch and wait. I've purchased a number of new discs over the last couple of months but I'm afraid to use them in the snow for fear of losing them. Instead I sit around twirling these new discs and flipping them in the air. I'll also practice my X-step or wrist snap. I go through various grips to see how the new plastic feels. My wife and kids think I'm nuts but they sort of knew that from all the "normal" disc golf stuff I do when there is not 3 feet of snow on the ground. I just wonder how other golfers are getting through this winter. I can't wait to see the grass and mud again.

Yeah, give me one of those bad boys and I'll volunteer to clear off all 18 tee pads. Heck, I'll do both the long and short tee pads with that! I imagine if I had that baby I'd be too busy to play disc golf.

I can't see around the corner. The snow banks are too high.

-27...5ft of snow.... that would be a challenge!!! Not quite sure I would golfing in that, so yes I would be going crazy too.

Done some tropical storm like conditions before, pretty cold weather....but never snow.

Spring's around the corner

no kidding can't wait for the spring thaw....green grass, using my towel just once or twice a round, less than three to four layers of clothing, good footing, not having to find the disc buried in the snow, etc.

Thats not nuts. Thats perfectly normal. Whats nuts, is practicing your putting in your house...using a fan to simulate wind, and the shower to simulate rain.

In South Dakota, its not so much the snow thats keeping me from going out, its the cold. We set a new record today, 27 below zero. Thats without the windchill.
