Ah as I wake up this morning and the ground is covered in that hellish white stuff I sit in bed wondering how quick I could pack all my stuff and move down south. After I decided that wouldn’t work to great I think how am I able to keep my golf addiction at ease for the winter months. Obviously club ho’ing with help but I also believe that I am going to spend a legitimate time of this winter hitting on a simulator that a local pga instructor owns. Hoping more than anything that this and the lessons provided will help not only keep my game sharp but keep me excited for next yearAlso looking for a driver fitting. Just trying to avoid the depression of winter at bay. Constant putting in the living room, watching golf YouTube videos, just hoping that I win one of those “free golf getaways” I entered with my fake email I’ve pulled out all the stops to make this winter better. But as many of you know I can only imagine that it will end with me bring the clubs into the bedroom and cleaning and sitting them at the end of the bed to make sure I keep good standing with them as they hate this time of year more than anyone. Thoughts and prayers are appreciated at this time as all golfers go through this tough times.

I use an indoor training facility by me until April-ish.

This is the time of the year I start taking more frequent lessons so I am ready for the new season

I don’t have tooooo many options of indoor domes none of which are nice enough to justify spending a ton of money at. I’m hoping that i am able to get to use the simulator. Seriously considered buying a skytrak. Pretty nice setup for relatively cheap.

Don't want to speak for him but, you are pretty much rambling on.  Maybe back off the caffeine before you hit the keyboard?

And good lord, it's only the beginning of November; what are you going to be like in January?  Shoveling a path in your backyard to find some grass to hit off?

He just wants people to feel his pain and share in his sorrow.  Can't do it.  I moved south from upstate NY about 25 years ago.  I would never go back.
Here it's 50 and mostly sunny.  Only action gets things done.  If you're bored, find something to do.   Be productive.  Read a book.  Take a second job.  Go help blind kids.

I got the joke. That’s why I posted the pic of me hopelessly waiting for spring.

This was the first season in a long time I was glad to see it end. Haven’t swung a club in two weeks.  Although, in 30 days I’ll be teeing it up in Palm Springs.  So I’ve got that going for me.

I don’t have tooooo many options of indoor domes none of which are nice enough to justify spending a ton of money at. I’m hoping that i am able to get to use the simulator. Seriously considered buying a skytrak. Pretty nice setup for relatively cheap.
I would recommend it, highly.

Recommend the skytrak or the dome?

I live in Australia and at 45 years young, I have never seen snow. I'm happy to go my entire life without seeing it, the pictures and videos I have seen are enough.

Feel the same way about the the Australian wildlife.  Half of them are cute as hell and the other half are just plain scary and want to kill you.

Yeah I can move snow and handle the cold. I can’t handle a spider the size of me.

I got the winter blues too!  But mine is caused by all the old people coming to Florida for the winter.  I get to trade 3 hour rounds for 5 hour rounds.   Toss in higher green fees and people stopping after 9 for a full meal then hit 10 35 minutes later demanding they go ahead.

The stuff is a damn' nuisance here. The problem in the UK isn't the quantity (most years most places barely get a dusting) it's just that we don't get enough practice in how to deal with it. Councils also don't have snow ploughs and the like because it's not worth it when they're only needed once a decade and even then probably only for a few days that year.

Not me.  Every year prior to this one I powered thru winter by dragging myself to the range on any day above freezing.  I hit balls in the snow and putted in the basement.  But, this year I have no desire to do that.  By the end of the season, I reached an accommodation with the game.  I don't have any technical questions anymore, and I don't dream of any magic path to improvement.  I am what I am, and nothing seems to change that.  It's as though I finally saw into the soul of golf found it wanting.  I saw past its false promises and heady moral posturing.  I'm happy to just put the sticks away until March and do something else with my life for a while.

We don’t have that issue we get the practice. We can get up to a foot or two over night in a bad storm. I live next to Lake Erie so it’s all lake effect.

Yeah I can move snow and handle the cold. I can’t handle a spider the size of me.

It must be just what we are exposed to when we are young. Even though I haven't seen snow, the thought of driving in it scares me..as does avalanche. Even without all that skiing looks to me like I would only break limbs.
But spiders dont worry me much, they generally leave you alone if you leave them alone. Its really not as bad as you guys think, it's not like I have even seen a spider for days. If you want to go poking around in the scrub, you WILL find spiders...and poisonous ones. But there is none in my loungeroom right now.

Well for your safety I would hope so lol. But where I live we don’t have the mountains but we have the snow. And driving in it does suck as much as it sounds like it does!

We do have areas that snow in the southern parts of Australia, but I have never had a reason or desire to go down there. So I would be completely green on a snowy icy road and would probably do things that an 8 year old kid that grew up around snow would shake his head at. As global warming increases, hopefully my chances of having to deal with snow decrease.
