Adventure! Travel! Intrigue and a rant

Posted on

I wasn’t going to post anything today, but I’m logged in, so I thought what the hay…

We’ve booked a trip – yay! In mid April we’re flying into Vegas and heading to northern Nevada, ‘Mesquite’ to be exact for a week long golfing adventure! We have tee times already booked at 4 courses in the Mesquite area and 2 in the St. George, Utah area. St. George was originally our destination, but it appears the courses are a little nice in the Mesquite area, the hotel newer (and less expensive), plus there are a few (cough, low rent) casinos and a country music bar with live performances. Right up my alley (oh, there’s a bowling alley too, but that’s not on the list of things to do). Woo hoo!

One day we’re going to check out Zion National Park – yay! Utah is one of my mom’s favourite places in the world, so she’s excited for us (and has been dropping hints for years that we should go there…)

The golf looks amazing and I really think William will like it better than Arizona..

(I found these images on Google, please don’t sue me for using them, thanks!)





Um yeah…. pretty nice! It’s going to be great!

So the rant part…. it’s still freaking cold. Yesterday I went to the gym and it was -2F with a wind chill of -23*F. It’s been like this for weeks now, however, it’s supposed to reach the freezing mark this week-end and it’ll be a welcomed relief! Today’s gym adventure was a balmy 11*F and my car was actually warm by the time I reached the gym.

The thing is… average high for this time of year should be right around the freezing mark. It hasn’t even been close in weeks! That’s like us having weeks of 50* weather in July – when it should be 80*ish. Boo!

Also annoying is everyone complaining about the weather and the snow – oh and the snow! More to come tonight! We have 4 foot drifts in the space I walk to my mom’s every morning with the dogs. I’m annoying myself just by writing about it. I hate myself! Haha!

SuperBowl party this week-end and it’s going to be super! I think we’ll have around 15 peeps over – crazy!

Life is good – cheers!

    We’ve been on a rollercoaster. It’ll be almost record highs (60-75) and two days later record lows (0-10) … but all with no snow at all. Weird.

    Just be glad you’re not in Atlanta where 2 inches of snow paralyzed the city and caused all sorts of problems. I know it’s not funny to them, but I laughed at the “chaos.”

    So who are you rooting for in the Super Bowl? I’d like to see Denver win and Payton announce his retirement right after the game … before he hurts himself.

      Opps! I replied to your post in Steve Betz’s comment – duh! Don’t make me retype it! Lol!

        Okay … I guess I’ll take a whole 2 seconds out of my day to click and look … sigh ….

    Nice! Sounds like a great time.

    Zion is gorgeous — just spectacular. I think that the NPS regulates how many people get into parts of the park, so you probably want to check on that.

      I’m certainly glad I’m nowhere near what happened in Atlanta. A woman from our city was stuck in that mess for 24 hours. I think that even if us experienced Essex County drivers were in those conditions, we’d be in trouble too – unsalted roads, no plows, but the real killer would be the hills. No hills here to navigate on snow covered roads!

      I’m kinda hoping Denver wins, because I like Payton Manning, but many of my friends despise Elway. Also, there’s a local guy who plays for Seattle. I have no Superbowl bets, so I’m pretty much Switzerland on this game. As long as it’s not Pittsburgh, Baltimore or Cinci playing, I don’t care too much about who wins this one!

        Opps – that reply was meant for GOM!

        Good to know about Zion! I think I’ve only been to 2 National Parks (that’s pathetic!).

        We’ll definitely do some recon before choosing a day to go there!
