Western Wallop

The Weather Channel calls the pattern that we currently in the “Western Wallop.”

To us, it looks like a lot of SNOW.

It might be global warming, an El Nino year, the advent of another Ice Age, or the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

It might be just a lot of snow.

What we do know is that our ability to play golf is severely limited right now. When our golf courses are sitting under a few feet of snow, we just can’t get out there, mostly because the courses are closed.

Our golf clubs sit in the garage, patiently waiting for the fairways and greens to reappear. We sit by the fire and dream of warmer days and greener golf courses.


  1. Perhaps it is time for you to invest in a Wii-- surely it has a golf game. While it won't have the same perks, it could certainly fight off the nogolfitis that inflicts so many this time of year.

  2. Vicki, we could be playing golf soon. Remember we live in New Mexico, and the weather can turn balmy all of a sudden. We could be playing at Civitan in Feb.! After all, we were just playing there in the middle of December.
