I took my daughter to Ohio this weekend for a tennis tournament and what a surprise – it snowed! I’m really beginning to think that I’m jinxed. Everywhere I go there is a freak storm.
It all started back in November. I took my daughter and her doubles partner to a tournament in Ohio and what happened as we were driving home – a freak thunderstorm hit our area, knocking down trees and power lines all over town and particularly in my neighborhood. How many snowstorms did I drive into and through in December and January? I lost count. There was even freezing rain and snow in St. Louis the weekend I was there which is not all that common there.
I know that a more reasonable explanation is that I tend to travel every couple of weeks which also seems to be Mother Nature’s pattern for throwing a new storm at the Midwest, but you can see how a girl might start to get a little paranoid.
The roads were terrible in NE Ohio yesterday morning when I had to get out to get my daughter to her tournament.
The roads that had been plowed were bad enough and it is a lot hillier in northeast Ohio than I remember it being when I lived there!
Just trying to keep it on the wide, flat spot between the trees!
By the time we were done for the day (and the weekend) the roads were dry and clear so I took advantage and drove home before it could start snowing again… or sleeting… or maybe raining and then freezing. If it isn’t one thing these days, it’s another…
