    I am so tired of winter. Yesterday morning the windchill was -33, this morning the actual temp is -15. I can't wait to be in fabulous Las Vegas. Nothing better than a winter escape to Vegas with my sweetheart. We are looking forward to a great stay at the Mirage to enjoy some pool time, some cocktails, some slots, and seeing Love.

    The only downside is the return! We were there two weeks ago 73 and pure sun! Today as I type it is 6 below! Plus windchill!! UGH!!

    Yep, got back on Monday and Vegas set two record highs while we were there. Morning temp this morning was -14 and the wind is howling, so I don't even want to know the wind chill. I know there are multiple reasons we moved from Vegas back to Wisconsin, but right now I'm having trouble remembering them.

    While I appreciate Mother Nature putting in the extra effort to ensure I appreciate the warmer weather, I think cranking the air temp down to -3 here in east central IL is a bit of overkill. I'm looking forward to retiring my longjohns for a week, and hopefully for the season.

    Joe, everything you have ever written leads me to believe you are a very sound thinker and man of reason......... except the whole moving back to Wisconsin thing! We were in LV a couple weeks ago and the weather was just amazing. Here in Ohio it is just miserable. Everything is difficult when the temps are so extreme. Twice as long to go to the dentist, work sucks, retirement is boring, etc, etc,!

    The horror, the horror, indeed!!

    Still a wee bit fuzzy out there so we're waiting until about 1 to tee off. Gonna head out in to the oaks and vines tomorrow for a little picnic at one of the wineries. Rotary fundraiser on Sunday but we should be able to get in an hour or two walk on the beach beforehand.

    Winter sucks.

    It is also a hassle having to put on so much sun block before my golf round here in winter. 81* when I just played.
    Although I wouldn't mind having to use rain gear.....

    Makes me glad that I decided to stay and live in Honolulu. Golf just about every week, "cold" weather is in the high 50's but usually in the high 60's or low 70's during the daylight hours.

    I went up to Seattle for job interviews (Boeing sent me up there and took care of me when i was there) in my younger days (20+ years ago). I was there for 10 days in May and I didn't see the sun my whole trip. I asked and my "sponsor" said that he saw the sun 3 weeks earlier. We visited all the plants and housing areas and looked at different jobs but it seem so depressing (so different from being in Hawaii where I see the sun almost every day) that I wasn't sure if I would enjoy living in the area. Luckily (or unluckily) the jobs offered didn't pay much more than I was getting in Hawaii so it was an easy decision to say "no thanks" to their offers. Also lucky decision for me because not long after the gov't cut back on defense spending and so they had some lean years that might have resulted in layoffs.


    This past weekend was strange, on Saturday we had winds 30+mph with gusts up to 50+. I teed it up and my ball barely stayed on the tee, sometimes falling off from the gust. It was great on the par 5's (going with the wind) I was just about reaching the green in 2 (for a short hitter like me who barely hits 215 to 220 with a driver it was awesome). But then going against the wind my drives were only going 180 yards even with low shots. It started pouring rain after 7 holes so I had to quit after 9. Too bad, it was a fast moving storm so it cleared up 2 hours later but by then I was at home. I played on Monday (pres. day) and it was totally gorgeous, winds 10 mph, totally clear sky, temps in the low high 60's when we started.

    I see the weather on the east coast and I consider myself lucky to live in Hawaii. Although I was born in Chicago I barely remember much (left when I was 5), all I remember was really cold winters and really hot summers.

    It's pretty sad when 20F makes us all say how nice it is outside. When I went outside at lunch time today it actually felt balmy, I looked at my phone and it was 18F, but no wind. The sun is getting warmer, just not warm enough to melt anything yet. We are going back into the deep freeze again tomorrow with a high of 11F and 30-35 mile an hour wind. Damn this is getting old!

    We are kind of all over the place in Central Texas -- it gets below 40 and we break out the parkas -- 51 degrees right now and it was around 70 and sunny yesterday but a cold front is coming in next week with highs in the 40s - gotta get my parka out again. I saw this video recently and it is a couple of years old from a Midas commercial but too funny. Dedicating to all those who have a true winter.

    It's not going to be as warm in Vegas as I would like but much warmer than here in the Midwest. Looks like we're going to get some snow over the weekend.

    Those of us up here at Lake Tahoe, Nevada would sure appreciate you boxing up some of the cold and the snow and sending it to us... we know you've had your fill!!!! We've had WAY too many days in the mid-60's and very, very little snowpack... like 10% of normal and here we are at the end of February.
