We have had an odd year weather wise. This Summer was considered to be pretty mild, even for Cleveland. There were not too many 80 and 90 degree days, and being the warm weather person that I am, it was not all that much fun in my opinion. The hotter the better, I love warm evening walks after a scorcher. October was also pretty terrible, a lot of rain and cold weather, not the pleasant Indian Summer weather that you hope to get in this area in October. Jeff and I ended up taking a day off of work to head to the pumpkin patch because it was really one of the only nice days we had in October. November was even more unusual but on the more positive side. It was so mild, I think October and November had their months a little mixed up. The only significant snow fall that we had experienced was on the west side of Cleveland the day after Thanksgiving that didn't even end up affecting our side of town. This is due to the strange phenomenon that is called Lake Effect snowfall that only Clevelanders really understand.
To sum it up, mild Summer and all, we have been pretty lucky so far this year as far as snowfall has gone. The first Winter Storm of the season is being tracked over the Midwest and about to bring a lot of wind and then finally snow starting tonight. To add an even more interesting twist, this storm is supposed to rev up the Lake Erie Lake Effect engine and drop even more snow on us. One of the benefits of living so close to Lake Erie. Anyone else bracing themselves for this Midwest Winter Storm? I know this nine month pregnant lady is not looking forward to driving in it this week, it looks like Jeff will be my chauffeur to work these next few days.
