Snow day again......

 7:37 am - Friday - April 29th - Likely, CA - 26° F, humidity 88%, wind 1 mph out of the east.....crystal clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 63° F.....there is frost on the VW as I write.  On this date in 2016 TLE and I were at the In 'N Out Burger in Carson City, NV.....↴

The weather forecast called for snow Thursday morning beginning between 8 and 9 am, and were they ever correct.  I was out on the golf course removing goose dookey from the 3rd green when it began to sleet.  Within minutes the green (#3) was white.... the time I got to the 4th green where I needed to rake the sand bunker it was full on snowing, but I raked it anyway. By the time I finished raking that sand bunker I decided that was all I was going to get done for a couple of hours, and headed back to the Newell to warm up, and change my gloves.  By that time it was really coming down.....

....once I had retrieved a dry pair of gloves I headed back to the Club House to hang out until the snow stopped.  When I headed out to hole #3 around 8:30 am the fairways were dry, and green, but when I returned an hour later this is what I found..... 11 am the snow had mostly stopped, and it had begun to rain, which quickly melted the snow.  I spell TLE in the office from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm each work day so she can go home for her hour lunch, and by the time she returned at 12:30 pm the skies had begun to clear, so I headed back out to hole #12 to rake another sand bunker....there are just four sand bunkers at this golf course (4,12,15, & 18), but each of them is pretty large, and take about 30 minutes to rake out properly.  

I haven't driven the entire back 9 before, so after raking the bunker at hole #15 I headed to 16, which is a 3 par, with an elevated tee box.....

There's the 16th hole....way down there.

The #16 tee box

......the cart path down to the 16th hole involves several switchbacks.....

....once I finished raking the fourth sand bunker on hole 18 I headed back to the Club House to put away my tools, and clean the mud and grime off cart #20.  After all the snow drama in the morning, the rest of Thursday was just down right cold, and very blustery.  I kept TLE company while she answered phone calls, and around 5:10 pm we headed for home. 

So, for the 5th time since we arrived here at LPRV&G it has snowed, and the snow has stuck, if only for a few hours....when will Spring begin?  The forecast for the next 15 days is a mixed bag with temps ranging from the low 50's to mid 60's, with some more rain thrown in for good measure.....hardly Spring time weather.
