Current air temperature in DFW is 37 and the radar is awash in yellow, red, and orange, with a little green thrown in for fun. Today's high was 39 and that occured earlier this morning. The wind is from the west/northwest at about fifteen for now but around noon will pick up to 25-30 mph.
The weatherman says the snow was supposed to start blowing at nine this morning but it's a quarter past and nothing yet. Although when I look at the radar, we're right on the edge of the front so it could start at any time. The temperature is going to be dropping hourly and expected to be around freezing by late afternnon. The wind is going to be picking up hourly and is expected to be in the lower thirties by the same time. It's also supposed to snow until around ten tonight and accumulations expected to be one to three inches.
Currently the radar has the entire DFW area surrounded by colors but if my wish comes true, I'll be golfing in a few hours in nothing but white. I'm fixing to call some friends and see if I can get anyone to join me.
Having lived in northern Indiana, I've played in snow before but now living here, I just don't get the opportunity to do so very often and so when I do, it's like a must do.
You guys in the north probably get real tired of it and figure it's more of a tolerence thing whereas I feel like it's more of a luxury thing.
Oh and so I'm dreaming of a white disc golf round.
And maybe a White Christmas too if it stays overnight.

Wow, we get a snowstorm like that the produced the five or six inches every five years or so but not this year. Back in February, we got a whoppin twelve inches in a 24 hr period. That's like twenty inches this year and it's mid March so hopefully that's it this year.
We'll see.

So, today is December 27th and there is still snow on the ground. Mostly just where it drifted or has been in the shade but it's still there. We played yesterday and as grown men will do, the round was slightly suspended for a few snow balls in flight.

Well, it's Christmas morning so first things first, Merry Christmas y'all.
We ended up with about five inches on the ground at the house which is the first time I remember snow on the ground for Christmas. Very nice indeed. I imagine the course has about that same amount since the further west and north, the more snow accumulation.
Yesterday was a blast, even with the wind blowing so hard that it was biting. I made a mistake and didn't pay attention to what the wind was going to do so I was not properly dressed or perhaps I would've tried for two rounds.
I had my windstopper gloves and hat and three layers on my upper body but only one pair of pants. They were not suited for the conditions of yesterday at all. That and I only had one pair of regular althetic socks on. Both of these were mistakes but not enough to stop the round, just enough to freeze my arse.
Now for the actual round. It started off fine even when the headwind turned my Excal over it was good enough for a forty foot putt. I didn't keep my nose down so my putt lifted and I ended with a par. Hole two's drive ended up with the same putt because I tried too hard to keep my drive down in the headwind so it was short by fifty. My putt looked good until it got to within ten feet of the basket, then it promptly lifted up in the air twenty feet and came back leaving me at twenty. My par putt hit one of the oaks that surround the basket, then the ground, then the wind took over and blew it foot by foot out to seventy-five. So I doubled hole two and IT WAS ON. Back to par on hole three and bogey on four. Hole five usually presents no problems, but it's open fairway which meant the wind got my putt again. I really have to learn to putt in blizzard conditions. The rest of the round was alot like the first five holes. Alot of bogeys, a few pars, and the occasional double throw in for fun.
I think my legs went numb before I finished the front nine but I couldn't feel them after six or seven so I don't know for sure. Hole ten should've been a problem with it being wide open and up by the levee but it wasn't really, and even though I doinked my putt and took a four, it should've been a par too. Hole thirteen is usually an easy birdie except my putt was directly into the headwind and I turned it over and bogeyed the easiest hole on the course. When I got to hole sixteen, the wind was crossing left to right but with a little tail too and so I parred it easily which in the conditions was nice since alot of people have trouble with it in nice balmy conditions. Seventeen and eighteen were really uneventful and so I finished at a whopping fifteen over. In comparison, I average a couple strokes under in the current layout.
In closing, the snow was awesome since we don't get to enjoy it often enough golfing here in Texas. I wish I could say the same about the wind but it was not fun, it might've been FUNNY, but not fun. I wish I could've enjoyed the round with a friend or two but it was Christmas Eve.
So again, Merry Christmas y'all.

Notice the wind driving the snow? It was probably closer to 45 mph up by hole 10 coming off the lake in the open field. But even here on sixteen it was blowing every bit of 35.

Just hung up the phone with my wife and it's now snowing at the house, "big, pretty, fluffy white flakes". Also spoke with a customer in Fort Worth about an hour ago and it was snowing there too. It's still above freezing and the snow is not sticking yet. It's just after eleven and only an hour to go before I head to the course.
