I hope you need it. We've had way more than our share or need amount for most of this month. Seems more like early Fall than August. Well except for the heat and humidity.

Yes, and no. Better to ere on the side of caution and say yes, because a steady day of rain day isn't a bad thing. It does mean I'll have to work tomorrow though.

It wasn't but maybe 4 or 5 weeks ago the golf club greens and fairways were browning up. Now they're glowing green. With the rain of late, the fairways at my club are soft and the ball doesn't run much. And a high pitch to the green usually doesn't stray more than a foot or so from where it lands.

It is so dry here they are punching the greens to try and salvage them.

The fairway of the course behind my house had only natural rain and no care other than mowing for the last 2 summers because they went out of business. The greens and fairways are dead, that type grass needs a lot of water. The rough is doing okay.

The HOA bought it and it is going to wind up as dedicated green space so we got hit with a capital purchase assessment and increased maintenance fees.

They hope to find some fool to lease it but golf courses everywhere are suffering a traffic decline so green space it will be.

We are getting pounded with rain today. I guess I have to actually work.

Do you mean aerating the greens? Our greens get aerated twice per season and, IMO, it takes at about 4 weeks for them to recover. While recovering, the added sand and aeration trails make it difficult to putt - especially when your line to the hole follows an aeration line that isn't close to the putting path you need to follow.

My club has three 18's and apparently, the area is classified as not being able to be redeveloped for residential or commercial (can't remember the term).

My brother in law who lives in Calgary, is just now admitting the air is getting smoke-covered. Funny though, the news has been reporting Calgary's air quality index issue three days ago. He likes to give fake weather news when the real stuff doesn't suit his advantage.

Hope you get some rain soon HTML! I wish we could give you some of ours.

Should be the same for us now. A deed restriction was planned to be the first new official act of ownership. They might exempt a very small section where the building of a few houses would make the area more private and less accessible.

It has been smokey here for weeks. Just about the whole province is/was under pour air quality advisory. Some of it seeped East across the Rockies.

Yes they are trying aerating. It is supposed to shower this weekend. Maybe that will help. It wasn't too bad there about a month ago.

Have a nice weekend all.

I hate that. it takes the greens 4-6 weeks to really recover from aeration. I know it's necessary, but it's hard to putt with any consistency. Sometimes the aeration "rows" take the ball on it's own journey - which usually isn't towards the hole.

A nice steady all-day (or two) steady rain would be just what your province needs.

Have a great weekend.

The one made out of real metal? I sure do; hated that we had no steps in the house.

Guess like lawn darts, they decided metal ones were too dangerous.

I think I'm a good bit older than you. The slinky was a hot toy then went out of style and made a comeback in plastic. That was the same general time that most toys became plastic. About a 10-12 year cycle if my memory is correct.

Plastic is cheaper.

As young kids (8 or 9) we also had "play cowboy guns" and played hockey in the streets. During the school year, we walked to school (not up hill both ways, but pretty far ) in the morning, came home for lunch, went back for the afternoon classes, and finally walked home at the end of the afternoon.

On school summer vacations, we left the house to play around the neighborhoods after breakfast (around 9am), came home for lunch, went back out to play and came home for dinner, then stayed out till dusk.
