Took a mini-cation to see my sister, warm then more snow?!?!
Had a great few days in Florida visiting my sister who is working at Animal Kingdom with Disney's College Program.
My parents have an annual pass since they knew Amanda would be working
down there, so Dawn and I only went into the parks one day, but we made
the most of it. We made sure to see the talking Mickey because he will be going away soon.
So yea... Summer went into the parks each day with my parents and you KNOW she was acting like an angel for them. I think she talked them into getting her ice cream every single night.
Cheesing for the camera...
Dawn and I spent time together for some fun dates around the resorts and spent a lot of time by the pool. I ran a little more than 20 miles down there and it was a shock to running in the heat and humidity again... in due time for us here in Ohio.
I took an extra day off to get laundry done and Summer and I started planting our cold weather crops in the garden. Peas and lettuce seeds are planted, but we have to wait a little more before the rest. Carrots and onions will be next followed by the tomatoes and peppers in a month.
I was told to leave and not come back until it warms up... well... I'm BACK! The next few days will be the warmest of 2018 so far! There is a catch... our winds will be very brisk in the afternoon and a Wind Advisory issued with our southwest winds 15-30 mph with gusts 45+. A little early morning rain today is passing by through Northern Ohio; otherwise partly cloudy, warm, & windy today with highs in the lower 70s. Tonight a mix of clear skies and clouds with overnight lows in the mid 50s and breezy. Winds pick back up tomorrow with partly cloudy skies and temps warming into the mid 70s. Rain returns Saturday with scattered showers and a few storms, while remaining warm. It looks dry, warm & windy for tonight's Columbus Clippers Home Opener tonight, but be sure to pack rain gear for the Ohio State Spring Game on Saturday. More showers and storms Sunday as a cold front sweeps through the area. This will usher in colder air for next week. The overnight forecast models are trending our temperatures colder, so a few tweaks to our extended forecast to adjust our temperatures colder for early next week and changing the icon to rain/snow on Monday with some early morning wintry mix showers then warming to some rain showers during the daylight hours then back to wintry mix and light snow/flurries Monday evening. We slowly start warming back up by the middle of next week. Have a good one!
