Ohio’s Weather Is An Exercise In Being Prepared

Wild Winter Weather Variations In Newark, Ohio

The warm temps went into the 70’s this week. I’m not a perfectionists and reports varied, but I seen thermometers hit into the 70’s. That’s incredibly warm for Central Ohio in February.

The motorcycles came out of my garage. The warm weather made for comfortable walks. It was such a nice reprieve from our usual brutal February weather.

Global warming/cooling/changing alarmists went into panic mode and forgot to look up previous record temps. Research quickly revealed 6o degree temps in Cleveland in 1981. It is rare, but not as rare as we are led to believe.

This photo is from  a warm February night stroll in Newark, Ohio.  The painted ad on a wall is as simple as it gets. The barbershop it points to has been back there for a long time according to my memory. Simplicity works.

When it comes to Ohio weather the most simplistic answer to, “What should I wear?”, is to use layers and be ready for anything. Some my find the constant changes discouraging, but it’s undeniably interesting.
