The Overview

The Polar Vortex blew in overnight and delivered its first wave of snow this morning. Visibility was less than 100 meters here at the golf course. The sun has peaked through and already the snow is receding. The temps will not be warm – but they will not be cold either. Chatter of -20C are history. The ponds will not freeze – and likely your water line will remain operable as well. Enjoy November in May – it is a unique experience that will not last fore long.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -2C(FL -8C) in sunshine. It will warm to 2C (FL -2C) in the afternoon and then cool to -7C (FL -12C) overnight. And it’s snowing. Winds – the steady 17kph flow of Northern air will keep it cooler through the day. The winds will increase in speed through tonight when they will get into the 30KPH range. The SnowMan is blanketing us. 200508wi
