wrong side of the lake?
I intellectually understand when people say that Cleveland gets a lot of snow because we're on the wrong side of the lake. Not as much snow as Buffalo mind you, or Ashtabula, where ever that is, but still a lot of snow. I get it. The wind comes in from the west, flies across an unfrozen lake, hits land and snow appears, as if by magic. I'm a transplant, but for you native Ohioans, did you ever wonder where that wind comes from? Michigan -- I've been watching the weather channel. But I digress.
If there is a wrong side of the lake, does that mean there is a right side of the lake? And if there is a right side of the lake, does that mean there is no snow there? Maybe just palm trees and 80 degree temperatures? Maybe just people with giant fans blowing air across Lake Erie because they have a sense of humor? Boy am I glad the Cleveland Garden show is in 10 days.
