In Columbus, if there's a threat of snow, the weather people get more excited than me in a DSW with unlimited funds. Now, I am not one who disses meteorologists when they're wrong; it may be a science but it's still unpredictable. We were originally under a winter storm warning to begin at 11 am yesterday, but Mother Nature had other plans so we had nothing until 6 or so, when it started raining. When I went to symphony chorus rehearsal there was a cold, cold rain. When I left to go home the snow had begun - a heavy, wet snow. And then I slipped and fell, so that was (not) cool. I'm OK, but I landed hard on one knee and today the opposite knee feels all wonky.
For those of you not in Columbus, it's an intersection of two interstates; I-70 goes across and I-71 goes up-and-down. Most inclement weather forecasts include a prediction of "north of I-70 will have blah blah blah and south of I-70 will blah blah." What's so special about I-70? (Note to weather geeks: I don't really want to know the answer.) Anyway, overnight it snowed like crazy and depending on where you live in the central Ohio area, you saw anywhere from one to nine inches although because it's so heavy, it may not look like that much.
Here's what I saw when I woke up:
|We live just barely north of I-70, for whatever that's worth.
