The lake between #1 and #2
Golf this late in December around here is very uncommon. Usually by this time the courses are all under a foot or two of snow. Thanks to global warming (big fan), the courses are still open. Right now we have an “inversion” here, which is basically a high pressure which traps fog and pollution in the Salt Lake Valley. The result is no precipitation, no blue skies and very cold temps.
Apparently the high temperature tomorrow is going to be a balmy nine degrees above freezing (F). The result is a golf equation: golf courses open + December 18th = 10:40am tee time.
Not expecting to light it up tomorrow. With five layers of shirts and jackets on it will be hard to even make a decent swing. But it is some form of golf, which is better than the alternative.
