    Beautiful pic no doubt about it. However, if it's too cold for cargoes, it's too cold for me. I'm not sure that I own any clothing that would be appropriate for that kind of scene.

    That photo (OP) reminded me of the shoreline near Muskegon, MI (or the way I remember it from back in the mid to late 1970's) - dealt with some very nice people up there. You can have the golf course, not my cup of tea.

    Golf is not for everyone, and we golfers kind of appreciate that.

    You couldn't PAY me enough to live in Michigan, or any state around the great lakes for that matter. Nothing but a cold, gray hellhole. Here is where I live; I DON'T do winter or cold,gray depressing weather well:

    Grew up on a golf course, literally. (Bass player in our band grew up on the opposite end of the course) In 1999 had to have my right wrist fused, can't hit a power stroke after having that done, so I'm left to meander the par three's around here. Mostly at night the heat and humidity here is unbearable.

    the wife and i are in the norcal foothills... gold country... at the moment the weather is warm, it hasn t rained in weeks... the snowpack is 50 - 60 % of normal... summer seems close... back to 100 + degree days, rolling blackouts by PG & E for fire prevention during wind events, smoke and all that good stuff...

    thankfully we re about 3 - 4 weeks from selling our house.... i ve enjoyed living in CA but at this point i m stoked about the escape plan...

    Gotta say, regardless of how much I love living where I am, there are some fantastic places in California and Arizona. I just took my wife on her first trip through Arizona last spring and even though I have been there many many time, I had never visited the Saguaro National Park and was flabbergasted by it's beauty. Of course California is abundant with natural beauty as well. Just sayin'

    Yeah, and after paying the golfing "fee" you get to go home to a massive air-conditioning bill.

    No thanks, if I want to sweat I'll just throw another log on the fire.

    I'd be just like that woman in the café, I might spend a winter there, but come spring I'd be goin' home to California if I had to walk every step of the way.

    If they had put February between July and August it would have worked out about right .

    That's what I keep telling all these new arrivals with California plates on their cars when they complain about the weather...

    "The weather in Oregon sucks. Even when it's nice it's terrible. California's weather is wonderful, even when it sucks it's wonderful...
    Go home."

    SoCal was nice for the short period I lived there, but I prefer the season changes.

    You can always put on another pullover, but you can't take off another layer of skin.

    .

    I had one professor in Engineering school that had this theory that all the great inventions happened in the cold dreary Midwest (from airplanes, cars, tractors, and tanks) where there were no distractions like golf in the long winter and then when the core problem was figured out, business started being successful, and so on, they moved the company to California and distracting weather. Much less innovation could happen when the weather was nice enough to be out there doing something fun. This was enough years ago that Silicon Valley didn't have the presence it does today, but then Silicon Valley is kind of stuck in the California 'cold zone' too -- at least per the Alcatraz escape movies.

    Michigan has two seasons for commuters. Winter and Road Construction.

    Back when I played golf, everyone got all excited one time when some guy shot a 58.

    BFD. I did that all the time, and it only took me nine holes.

    Except when you have skin cancer antecedents...
    I live in Paris and I now have to put sunscreen on from April to October. Imagine what it would cost me if I lived in California!
