Good: I can step outside my workplace and get some "field work" in anytime I want. Today I made some notable distance improvements.
Bad: There's a fence at the end of the "field", ensconced in briars.
Ugly: I'll be climbing a fence if I want my buzzz's back.

Good: Got to play after a long break (two weeks) and only had three discs that i've thrown before (Jokeri, Wahoo and X Buzzz) testing out Squall, Impact, Hornet, Opto River (way better than my GL), X Nuke (too little traction to really make it go although it did produce the longest flight of the day), Aftershock, Hurricane, Star 161 Vulcan and Glo Z Stalker. It was a somewhat poor test considering i didn't throw the Wahoo and Stalker. Didn't lose to mafa.

Bad: Four bad slips with two finger grip and two wrist rolls. Not bad considering the conditions and having worked like a dog. It was so cold that my thermos only had lukewarm water in it when i started to drink from it. To early to say a lot on the discs out in public. Other than i think Opto River, Hornet, possibly Aftershock and Squall in harder plastic than i used might work well for me. Some of them probably not so well on windy days. That Vulcan is plain silly for a 400'+ thrower. Roller material. Hurricane annied came back way too late from minimal steps on snow. I imagined it would need much more power based on what people have written here. Thrown flat it did need way more power than i could generate in these conditions. Not as much as the light X Nuke though.

Ugly: -5F and 16 MPH winds when we started getting warmer and windier toward the end. HRRRR!!! I should have put apricot brandy i have to the thermos.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Good: played some great golf the last 2 days. Putting was ON, only missed 2 inside the circle all weekend. Took first at 2 minis, adding nearly $100 to my tourney fund. Get to have valentines lunch today at one of my favorite pubs, the old monk :)

Bad: still on the fence about playing the dynamic disc cedar hill chill next saturday, and its already almost full :(

Ugly: the idea of shelling out $85 for a 1-day tourney, not counting gas/food money.

The Good: had some good drives this weekend. Also someone filmed me throwing a comet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLC36PYcqeI . Kept the cash streak alive.

The bad: Played really badly from the longs both days.

The Ugly: Started getting a weird nose up in my putt the last couple of weeks and this weekend with the wind it really cost me some putts.

Good: Played an actual round of disc golf on an actual course. Putting and approaches were respectable, and driving accuracy was surprisingly reasonable.

Bad: Distance sucked badly

Ugly: I left my favorite Champ Leopard on the course after throwing a second shot. When I realized my boneheadedness and went back to get the disc, it was gone.

Good: the weather and I broke down and join the PDGA

Bad: the Rattler hasn't performed like I'd hoped but the ugly part below is more than likely the reason

Ugly: my game is so rusty I need a tetanus shot every time I go play :(

Good: Played some DG today for the first time in 4 months, played good, and nailed an ace!

Bad: only my 2.5 year old daughter was there to see it.

Ugly: I was wicked tired after we played 9 holes. It is crazy hilly and I had to carry my daughter for most of it. I should not have run 5 miles before we went to play.
