Back at work today after a “Jekyll and Hyde” weekend – at least from a weather perspective. There is one constant about living in Ohio – if you don’t like the weather today, it will be different tomorrow. And if your weather weasels are anything like ours, it’s amazing that they get paid good money to have absolutely no idea what it’s going to do tomorrow.
This was my view on Friday from 1:00 p.m. until midnight, and Sunday from noon until 5:00 p.m. – six NCAA tournament games at the University of Dayton Arena. After the games yesterday, this site has now hosted 101 NCAA games – more than any other venue in the country (the next closest had 83 and it no longer exists). We were lucky – parked close to the door so we could leave our winter coats in the car (yes, we’re still using them). Friday it was in the mid-30s and Sunday there was a Winter Storm Warning all day and night (the weasels were guaranteeing 5” - 9” of snow). So we were very pleased to have the early games on the schedule so we could get home before the storm hit.
But in-between game days, it was 55 degrees on Saturday and the sun was shining – when I got home from work, the crocuses were very happy.
And that really nasty Winter Storm? Well the truck isn’t happy and would much rather be in a warmer climate (and so would I), but we only got 2” and the roads were never an issue this morning. Looks like we might actually make it to 50 degrees by Easter – but last year at this time it was in the 80s and I was wearing shorts to work. Global warming? I don’t think so . . .
