I’m back in the midwest, visiting family for the holidays. So far, I haven’t had to say ‘snow-blower’ or ‘snow shovel’.

As many know, mid December weather in the midwest can run the gamut of below zero temps and tons of snow, to rather balmy temps and clear skies. This December so far, temps have been equal to or higher than Phoenix temps, with a little rain thrown in. I have no complaints.
The lake I live on is ...... water, and not ice. The photos I took of the lake today look like I could have taken them in mid August. That’s fine with me also.

In order not to gain a zillion pounds while visiting every relative within a 100 mile radius, and eating way too much, I’ve been out walking (hiking?) all over the place.
Today I ventured out on the nine hole golf course that’s across the road, and walked the entire course.
The club house and the course are closed, and the greens are roped off to prevent snowmobiles from ruining them, but ‘hiking the course’ is allowed.

I used to golf this course all the time, and know it very well. I quit the game 20 years ago for other activities. I’d rather be on the lake during the summer than on the course.
Walking the course in December is fun, especially when it’s 50 degrees with no wind. The layout of the fairways hasn’t changed since I quit the game, but the course is now easier, with wider fairways, larger greens and fewer sand traps etc. All the better to ‘move-golfers-along’ the course faster. Ironically ‘par’ for the course hasn’t changed.

Hopefully, the weather stays balmy for another couple weeks, so I don’t have to re-learn how to snow blow the driveway and sidewalks. Wish me luck.
