So I got up this morning, looked outside, and the world was pleasant. The ground appeared to be drying and things looked pretty calm out. That was solid. We went out to Carter Park in Bowling Green, Ohio. Myself, Justin Smith, and Justin Gill. Met Pat Burke out there. Basically it was all to get a practice round in for the Falcon Thaw tomorrow morning. When we teed off there was a very light breeze and the ground appeared to be drying.
By the time we hit hole five it was starting to come down. By the time we finished the round it was brutal: stiff winds driving snow in our face. When we finished our second round? It was around a quarter of an inch already on the ground. Talk about a fast dump. By the time doubles came around at 5:30 at Ottawa Park I think we had at least an inch. We've got a few inches now. By morning we're looking at 4-5 judging by the radar. This is a hell of a way for winter to say goodbye.
Because of the weather, though, I went and picked up a few things. Beartooth Mountaineering was having a going out of business sale and I grabbed their last Sealskinz socks and their last pair of Yak Traks (rubber thing that fits around your shoe that gives FANTASTIC traction). Everything in the store was 60% off so I got both of those items for a fantastic $20.00! Very happy about that.
Tomorrow's tournament should be interesting, lets hope the weather isn't too horrid, forecast calls for the snow to stop very early in the morning so it could just be the feet feeling miserable. Got my fingers crossed.
