    Yes, people go crazy down here when this happens. They forget how to drive and panic for milk and bread! It will all be melted and gone by this afternoon, so they will have to find another excuse for their apathy.

    I have 9 holes of par 3s laid planned out in my head. Now I just need to quit my job so I can work on it! I do use that field in the pic for my driving range. That lone oak out there is about 250 yards from my tee box behind my barn.

    I'm sure that snow was a shock for most folks down there. But you might as well join the crowd with the snowfall.

    Beautiful pictures!

    Well thanks, but I wouldn't say I was heroic. More crazy than anything!

    I bet it makes you real glad you have the wood to heat your home.
    Change of pace working in the snow, but hurry
    I hear it will melt soon.
    Great place
    Thanks for the pictures

    Hey bigtall,
    I'm in Michigan. We get a little snow in the winter (except this one). You'd think folks from here would know and REMEMBER how to drive in the stuff. No. They don't.
    Then we get the headlines and news reports of "snow CAUSES multiple accidents". No. It doesn't. People driving like they're on the Nascar circuit is what causes it.
    Not adjusting for conditions.
    Evidently, no one knows how to MAKE bread either.
    I should just stop now, my blood pressure is climbing.
    Great pics too.

    Milk and bread...why do so many people like French Toast when it snows? How do all of the sane people down south deal with the "snow panic"?

    We stay at home and watch the videos on TV of them crashing into each other, and split wood.

    In the northeast everyone also panics for milk, bread, and eggs. Forget that, I run for beer and Jack Daniels. Actually Molson Canadian from the north and Jack Daniels from the south.

    Yep, when it was coming I went and got Jack Daniels and Captain Morgan. Luckily we made it through. Whew! It was close though! We almost had to drink some old wine, and today is sunday, so no liquor sales!!!!

    Up here they still go into Panic Central with snow in the forecast . . . as if folks around here have never seen or expect to see it in middle of the winter.

    Items they stock up on: milk, bread and eggs . . . beer . . . Allen's coffee brandy . . . and chlorine.
