Unhappy First thick rain / ice storm last night in NE Ohio.

So of course, no power on my street! But thank God for generators.

The neighbors razzed me a little for getting my house prepared for my portable generator. I guess they're eating crow for breakfast this morning. That is, if they can find their way to the kitchen ... in the dark. Maybe I do believe in Karma.

There forecasting between 6" and 15" of snow at my house tonight.

We got hit by about 15 inches in western Wyoming about j3 weeks ago........gave me a chance to clean up the beasty, 'Ol' Dollar' and catch up on some service.................Indian summer has set in now and we've had a couple of weeks of dyn-no-mite riding and fly fishing.................

Keep the faith..........there's always more good weather...............

In typical NE Ohio fashion, they're calling for "60 and Sunny" this Thursday and Friday.

Re: First thick rain / ice storm last night in NE Ohio.

You NE Ohio boys got the actual snow; we got "possible rain/snow" showers predicted the last 2 days and that is what has kept me off the bike Monday and Tuesday (today). There is no chance of snow or freezing rain tomorrow so it's back in the saddle for the daily commute.

I'm really starting to dislike cold weather, after being a fan of winter most of my life. I must be getting old!
