Winter has finally come to the North Coast.
After feeling more like March than December here up until last week, it was a bit of a challenge driving through a band a Lake Effect Snow that steadily drifted south along the Lake Erie Shore Friday. It was most noticeable driving home when, as I was approaching the East 140th St. off ramp on I-90, a wall of snow rained down on the drivers. I managed to reach Muldoon’s on East 185th St. for a quick dinner. I was actually thinking that, after an hour there, perhaps the snow would let up. In fact, it got worse. I managed to drive home with no problem, but when I got back out to shovel a little the pile of snow on my driveway, the car was buried. It has let up a little, but not before the thunder snow hit.
The odds of Cleveland having a White Christmas are a lot better than I would have thought at the beginning of the month.
