Texas Made wrote:The time change effects Texas as well. In the summer it gets dark at almost 9pm, now its getting dark close to 7:30pm.....I hate the time change, I wish it wasn't that way. I guess I will have to only play 9 holes instead of 18 here in a couple of weekes....Boooo!


I was actually surprised at how much moving even 250 miles north affected how long the days are. I moved from Des Moines, IA to Minneapolis, MN a few years ago and I noticed how much shorter the days were the very first winter (I moved in August when the difference was minimal). I'd work from 7:30 to 4 and in the middle of the winter it would be dark when I went to work and dark when I got done.

It goes the other way in the summer, too. I couldn't believe just how long it stayed light out.

that time change screws us down here in south florida too. although as you guys freeze up north i am enjoying beutiful weather in the 70's maybe high 60's and perfect conditions for some dg. it is a little bit windy now as opposed to the summer, but the cool weather is a welcome change from sweeting your b@lls off on the course.

I'm with you. I love cold weather. I hit the course this morning when it was about 35 degrees in shorts and a polo shirt. The joggers and cyclists looked at me like I was crazy.

I also really enjoy a brisk round of golf, particularly at night. I don't like the cold all that much, but I do enjoy a 45 degree round in a baselayer and sweatshirt, add a wind-breaker when it gets down to 35.

82 degrees and sunny today. Still waiting for some real weather. Still needing to water all my plants to keep them alive.

Easy weather for DG though.
