Yesterday’s high was 64 degrees in St. Charles MO, (East Central Missouri), today’s high will be 43, cloudy, intermittent rain. Up and down highs and lows just bounce from one day to the next; one reason we have such stormy whether with threats of tornado’s so often here. Looks like rain for the next two weeks, especially on week ends. I may have to go out of state to get a round of golf in. BUT WHERE????
On the calendar, it’s Spring. However, old Mother Nature hasn’t woke from her Winter slumber. Currently (April 8) it is 35 degrees in Missouri, with a forecast of a high of 42%. Not exactly Spring temps!
The golf course and fishing lakes and rivers are lurking in my patience! Maybe next week?
It is April 3rd. The significance? Should have several rounds of golf in by now. Mother nature cares not about my agenda. Here in Missouri, it can be 30 degrees one day and 70 the next. Trouble is in this calendar Spring, we’ve not had many days that have reached 55 yet. Easter Sunday, it was as low as 25 degrees. Don’t get me wrong, if it were 55 degrees outside, I’d be out swinging the clubs. Not it in the pouring rain. Its dull, cloudy and rainy nearly everyday. Easter Sunday, it snowed with a mix of ice.
The 15 day forecast (which can change any minute in Missouri) has 7 days of rain. Most of the those days the average high about 44 degrees, lows of 25. Looks like around April 12 the 60s will arrive. Rain nearly every weekend.
I don’t remember the cold staying with us this long…….20s almost unheard of this time of year here. The rain, will bring Spring floods, for sure.
Meg Trammell, age 11, had just eaten supper after her first day of school at Advent Episcopal School in downtown Birmingham, Alabama. “My mom and I decided to take the dogs on a walk,” recalled Meg, now 12 years old, as she described the late mid-August evening in the suburbs of Birmingham. “As we were…
Copperheads are abundant in Missouri. They can be found just about anywhere, they especially like rocky areas, shallow creeks (rocky creek beds). These guys are not afraid of entering your back yard, coil up on your porches. Be very careful playing golf, don’t rustle around in the high grass or reach down into the edge of the woods to pick up a ball. You might get an unwanted surprise.
Maybe the fishing is about to turn for the better. Saw some bass today near the banks in shallow water, pre-spawning period. Trouble was, I was playing golf, not fishing. While walking along the cart path near the edge of a couple of the courses lakes, I spotted a few bass for the first time this spring. Just yesterday nothing, not even a minnow.
Everything is now good in Sergio’s world. He has been playing on the PGA tour/(and European) for many years, with as much talent as anyone; only to go majorless, until now. Finally, Sergio Garcia is a major Champion, a champion of the elitist of all, “The Masters”.
All is great in Sergio’s world. He is to marry a beautiful Texan. He is in love. He plays the game he loves, and now has one of the championships that has always alluded him. If an American was not to win, I wanted Sergio to win. His expression of happiness on the 18th green (the first playoff hole), will be a classical moment in sports. Sergio did this on what would have been the 60th birthday of his hero, fellow countryman (Spain) Seve Ballesteros. Touche to Justin Rose, a great sport.
