Image may contain: tree, sky, snow, outdoor and nature, text that says 'Winter is here!'

This morning the blanket of white arrived and is likely to stay until April 2021. We are hoping for a bit of break over the next few weeks, but essentially Winter is Here!

With the snow finally here and the waiting over, I realize that my morning routine shifted gears. I am not sure why, but the change in weather has changed how I look at things.

A Golf Vacation Without Leaving Home

It is the time of year when most golfers are planning or dreaming of going on a golf vacation. I am one of those golfers, yet here I sit at home in the freezing cold dreaming of hitting the links. Well, I only have 96 days to go before opening day at Osprey Links Golf Course. Since I am not heading south for a few weeks, what is a golfer to do?
