Disc Golfing in a Cold Front

We had a great plan.  Since we would already be in town near our favorite disc golf course, and since we would be finished at the Chinese buffet around 2:00 in the afternoon, we decided that it would be a great time to take the older students disc golfing after the “Chinese” field trip.

The day before, it was around eighty degrees when we arrived home after school, and we were hoping for similar temperatures the next day.  My parents used to always say, "If you don't like the weather in Texas, just wait a little while."  A little while passed (about twelve hours).

Then the cold front came.  It included much colder temperatures, rain, and cumulonimbus clouds.  Yay for practical applications of physical science.
We bundled up, voted at the Chinese restaurant, and decided to go ahead and see how many holes we could make it through.

It was thirty-five degrees by the time we finished the thirteenth hole, and it was getting darker and colder by the minute.  We bolted for our warm cars. 

It was very cold, but it was a blast.
