This Too Shall Pass

Winter Green Avon CCTwas the day before Christmas in Avon, CT (Country Club of Avon)

        Connecticut resident Mark Twain once said, "If you don't like the weather in New England now, wait a few minutes."  As I write this, the temperature has risen in my town of Avon to 55 degrees.  It has begun to rain and will do so pretty much for the next 24 hours, with high winds that have compelled the local energy company to warn us of impending power outages.  Tomorrow morning, temperatures will reach 61 degrees and then steadily drop to 25 overnight.  The only good news is that the snow, after turning to slush, will disappear -- until Twain's prophecy about the weather in these parts comes true again, and the cycle repeats itself.
        Yet, there will be golf in March, even earlier for a few hardy souls; and there will be a 2021 for all of us much better than the year just passed.  To you and yours, have a wonderful holiday season and, above all, stay safe now and in the new year.

Larry Gavrich

This blog was conceived and is published by me, Larry Gavrich, a former corporate communications executive who founded HomeOnTheCourse, LLC, in 2005.  Our firm advises baby boomers and others seeking a lifestyle in which golf is a major component.  My wife Connie and I own a home in Connecticut (not on a golf course) and a condo at Pawleys Plantation in Pawleys Island, SC, on a Jack Nicklaus layout.  We began our search for our home on the course more than 15 years ago, and the challenges of the search inspired me to research golf communities and write objective reviews of them.
