Remember the lake photos I took last summer?
Lake Erie, which we love so much in July and August, is not such a good friend in January. Before it freezes solid, the term "Lake Effect" is in our weather forecast a good part of the time. The lake water evaporates into big gray clouds which float south and east, dumping vast quantities of fluffy white snow on those of us who live south and east of the lake. It snows much more in the "snow belt" which I am happy to tell you is not our home. Those hardy souls in Chardon and Ashtabula received four feet of snow yesterday. AAK! We have a lot, but not that much.
Daniel is such a trooper about keeping our driveway shoveled. This is about the tenth time he's been out in two days. You can see the snow mountain he has made alongside the driveway. I tried to go visit my mom this morning, but the roads were terrible, so by the time I got to Twinsburg and encountered an accident on Route 82 I turned around and came home. I did make it to work yesterday, and will again tomorrow, but today is my day off and I am hibernating.
