Well, running is out of the forecast for now as Northeast Ohio digs out from under yet another snow storm. We got about nine inches on top of the snow that has lain on the ground for most of the month.
This is the longest time I can remember this much snow being on the ground. Usually, we get these storms and in a week or so it melts away.
But, as I said, this has been an unusual winter. Ohio is two inches away from eclipsing the snowiest January in history, the infamous Blizzard of 1978.
My car wasn't as buried as it was last year in March, but it still took me an hour to get it moving from my on-the-street parking spot. Let's just call it cross training.
