OT: A beautiful morning in Palm Springs

I may be the only that cares about this kind of stuff but I usually hit the driving range at one of my clubs as soon as they open at 7AM. I like to work on my swing early. Today was an exceptionally gorgeous day and I took this picture. God has giving us a great day today!

Wet, heavy snow here in the Northeast... Quite jealous.

FL or CA?

I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Thats true, there is a Palm Springs in FL but I'm in Palm Springs, CA. More specifically, this is in Rancho Mirage which is almost dead center of the Palm Springs valley - the pic is at the driving range at one of the country clubs I belong to out here.

Sounds like you live the life.

Oh GentlemanJack.... I will drive out to Palm Springs and show you how to play golf!

Shoot, I need the lessons too! I may play often but my index is a 36! Having said that, there's a TON of hard courses out here. I belong to a club that hosts an LPGA major, so you can imagine how those courses are laid out.

Jelly. Do you play everyday?

I try to play or practice (range) just about every day. On any given weekend day I'll play 27-36 holes. But I can't do that back-to-back, so I might do like 27 Sat and 18 Sun. This weekend I'm playing 18 both days in a tourney. Summer hours means places open at 6 instead of 7 and in those cases I'll play a few holes every day.
