It happens every year at this time.
I always put on my TV thinking it may make me feel better.
The PGA Tour golfers are at the Kapalua Plantation Course in Hawaii for its annual Tournament of Champions.
I dialed in my iPad Air at 5 p.m. Friday to snap a photo from round one.
OK, that described the where and why for everybody.
So I grabbed a more picturesque scene-setter, a shot that screams Aloha.
Thank you, Golf Channel. Rounds two through four continue today through Monday, meanwhile, early action on that network and later action on NBC.
For best contrast worldwide, I ran right over to our side porch in the Little Bitty my dear wife Karen and I share in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood.
That is the scene one minute after 5. Temperatures are lower than 20 degrees F. But over 10! It’s not snowing. At this moment.
No, watching this golf tournament from Hawaii this weekend will not make me feel better.
Would you watch the PGA golf from Hawaii in hopes of a spirit lift, or avoid it and all costs? Have you ever gone to Hawaii during your winter months to get away from snow or cold, and how did it feel when you had to come back? If you’re in the snow this weekend, what’s your plan?
