I know that this snow and cold weather of the last few weeks has caused havoc with the scheduling of sports activities. Our school was supposed to participate in the following activities on Friday, all have been rescheduled: track meet, golf meet, soccer games, tennis meet. Our AD said in his 20 years of his athletic administration, he doesn't remember a stretch of time that so many activities have been postponed, cancelled, or rescheduled. Example, our soccer team has played 1 game in the last 16 days. He also said trying to find enough indoor spaces for practices for the activities has been difficult.
My daughter was on the HS tennis squad from 2013-2016. All but her senior year were miserable cold and snowy springs here in SMI. We can relate! And there's really no such thing as a girl's "cold wx uniform". They were issued one skimpy uniform meant only for summer conditions. Wasn't too much fun for dad either. To spectate was to freeze. I do miss her playing tho

"Long range winter forecasting - it's like tossing darts in a hurricane.." "In my day, they didn't name 'em, they just called 'em blizzards! *Shakes fist in air and ambles away mumbling to himself" “and to think kids nowadays get day's off school because the wind blew. I think in '78 we only got 1 day off” "..It's the U.P. where there are two seasons. Winter, and three months of bad skiing.."
