It hasn't been above freezing all month (nine consecutive days) and there doesn't seem to be any chance of getting above 32 degrees before Monday. The cold and snow are putting my streak of 19 consecutive months of golf play at risk.
Looks like I'm going to have to head south, or see my streak die. The latter is more likely.
Champaign-Urbana hasn't been above 32 degrees since Nov. 30 (when the high was 33 degrees) and it hasn't been above 40 degrees since Nov. 28 (when the high was a balmy 59 degrees).
When will the December thaw arrive?
