Ah, yet another thread about the weather and how it affects us.
I've read so many theories, postulations and predictions about the weather on WC over the last 6 weeks I'm beginning to think it's a plug-in to the Weather Channel.
And how I'd love to have 6 - 8 inches of snow.... fech, I'd be happy with just one. That'd mean it isn't 33c outside... and I could be throwing snowballs instead of sweatballs.
Also, who in their right mind plays golf in 82 degrees? Shoot, I'd be a puddle on the ground long before that... oh, yeah, I see, that's 82F. Still, I'd like it more around 52F with a bikini-clad caddie who has a bar fridge on the cart.
..it's now 7 past 1 AM and still 28.
That's common in my neck of the woods... 25c + after midnight during Summer. There's not a lot of difference between the highs and lows of the day up here, so most are a balmy night and roll on Winter.
As for these 'supposedly new', weather. patterns.. like snow in February, my mother told me that it snowed on her wedding day in March 1951. Now in South Devon [UK] that was unheard of, yet it happened, then and before. She also told me that when she was 12 and on her way to school in Dartmouth, ice had formed on the edges of River Dart where the water was either slow moving or stagnant. That was back in 1944, so yeah, there's nothing new in it because these weather patterns occur in cycles, and have done so since the dawn of time.
Oh, and Dave, you can still play golf if you rug up enough and don't mind the cold.... g
Good luck finding your balls [er, golf balls, that is].
