OK, yesterday morn here in Cleveland, the sky was pitch black. Huge thunderstorm, raindrops the size of my fist! No, I’m not exaggerating. So, maybe my fists aren’t that huge, but that’s still a big raindrop. In the morning, I was making my coffee in the kitchen & I look out the kit window. The sun is coming up, the sky is bright, & the rays are shining down. Then, I walk out to the living room, & look out the window there. Pitch black, dark gray clouds rolling in. Very eerie. Cool, but eerie.
Then, in the afternoon, the skies opened up. The clouds drifted away. Pure sunshine. So bright it hurt your eyes. All over the ground were tree limbs that just weren’t strong enough to make it through the day. It was still windy out, but bright & windy. Sunny & 67 degrees for the rest of the daylight hours. 67 & SUNNY!!!
Well, this morning I woke up to 30 degrees & snow. Still windy, so the snow’s now coming at me sideways. As I drove up toward the lake (I work North of where I live), the snowflakes grew in size. At first, they were these teeny-tiny little specks coming at me super-fast. Going up 71, they got to the size of a half-dollar, & were now more fluttering around as my windshield hit them head-on. They stuck onto my windshield glass & melted away into nothing-ness. Oh, & they were so white & clean & fresh & new. Then, they were gone.
Well, now I’m told that near where I live, the snow’s coming down; an inch an hour. I was told we’re going to get 3 to 7 inches today. Here’s what the winter storm advisory online (below). Wild, huh?
