I wore a white T-shirt today, but it was a much needed undershirt. A T-shirt was required for the start of the day on the golf course, but things warmed up and it turned out to be quite pleasant. The temperatue at the Beach is 47F (8.3C). Not so for tomorrow, at least at the golf course (Whiteville, NC) as rain and snow showers forecast.

By: YohoLake, 3:45 PM GMT on February 06, 2010
The ducks and geese around the local courses are definitely not lame. Their droppings are spread far and wide. A cloudy day at the beach with a temperature at 10:40 a.m. of 48F (9C). The old lumberjack says that he is getting heavier as he gets older because there is a lot more information in his head. He says that's his story and he's sticking to it.
