I was enjoying the view from the 3rd floor of the Jackalope during the meeting for…
We’ve been invaded from the North! Our neighborhood has been under siege the past few days.
The troops were seen carrying out their mission along the exposed edges of front yards as the snow slowly melted during the sunny but frigid days.

A quick peek at the first snowbell of the year before this weekend’s alleged snowstorm buries them in celebration of the end of meteorological winter.
If you don’t see us for a few days, don’t worry – we’ll be back as soon as the new modem gets here!
Roger Brownson was my guidance counselor for 4 years at Lorain High School. This was taken yesterday at the Crocker Park event for Quinn.
The positive power of social media was in full effect today at Crocker Park, thanks to this message posted on Facebook:
“Please help us make a little boy’s dreams come true at Crocker Park this afternoon.

This wish is not through any organization, just his family trying to make their boy happy with what little resources they have left.”
The crowd lined the block.
The polite paparazzi handled the star’s arrival professionally.
It’s winter. You know what snow is and what it looks like.
If you don’t, that’s what Google is for. I can hardly look at it anymore, let alone photograph it.
Instead, join me in a warm, sunny place on this cold, windy, awful winter day :-)
