If this keeps up, this will be one of the snowier winters in local records. We are already at 22 inches with more coming and those winters in the 70's broke 50 inches. That is a lot for us. Just a few years ago it didn't quite snow an inch all winter!

That is how the Ohio Valley is. It is supposed to be one of the hardest regions to predict weather. The weather man is the subject to many jokes everywhere and Cincinnati is no different. The models did show this storm coming about a week ago though.

The schools are all closed today and I am sure they will be tomorrow. Teachers are enjoying their snow days but I imagine most will be going into June again this year. I see where the house is voting on giving schools back their five calamity or snow days this year.

Congrats to former ag teacher Rob Hovis for getting electing as President of the Ohio Board of Education. The Republicans got the leadership back with a close 10-9 vote, probably thanks to Kasich and the other Republican wins in November. It is good to have someone you trust in such positions.

It's been 50 years since John F. Kennedy was elected President of the United States. We were a much younger, naive country then and he was the youngest man to get elected at that time. He is one of the Presidents that you remember his famous lines in his inaugural address like Lincoln and Roosevelt. Those lines became famous.

Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. The Peace Corps was started and over 22,000 people have served since its inception. The country was all about giving and helping and not all about me like it is now.

LuAnn's Kindle died so she is bummed. I better go look for some ideas but I suspect the battery. I read they have had lots of problems with them.

Stay warm,

  1. I think the school buses did not go out in some parts of Sask. this morning. Wind chill factors in the -40 range will do that. Lots of snow around too.
