Hello! It has been a hot minute. This is not our house, above, but we love the decorations, so we stopped to take a photo in front of it earlier this week.
I love seeing the happiness in the kids this time of the year. They just love life and the spirit of giving. We picked up some toys Saturday morning for Toys for Tots. The kids also got to meet Santa when they dropped them off at the station, while I was working.
Another fun gift is that the new Quarry Trails Metro Park opened up! I think I have been there about 4 or 5 times in the last week and a half. It is located just a few miles from our house.
I also ran down to the park, with my buddy Tony. It was his first time there so I wanted to show him the sights and sounds. The waterfall is the kids' favorite.
I have been backing off on my running lately. But trying to give back and volunteering instead. I helped out with the inaugural Alley Marathon in Lancaster. Some amazing athletes out there. Harvey Lewis was there among other fast local runners.
I was working at the aid station and helping the athletes refill their drinks and getting them nutrition when they came through, every 2.2 miles, on the their loops.
I have also been doing some painting at the house. The basement only had a half coat of paint when we bought the house and so we wanted to clean it all up and make it the dedicated toy room for the kids.
So nice to take most of their toys and put them in the basement for them to have their own space to do what they want.
Temps are cold this morning, mid 20s, but we are on the up and up with milder temps heading into the start of the weekend. The chance of rain is also going up. Today is a pretty quiet day with temps in the mid 40s for the afternoon with mostly cloudy skies. A few spotty light rain showers are possible later today and overnight. We will stay cool overnight, with low temps around 40 by Friday morning. A few showers possible from time to time Friday morning and midday with temps warming into the 50s for the second half of the day. More scattered rain likely later in the day. The heaviest rain will be Friday night and Saturday morning with the potential for some storms as well. The Storm Prediction Center has put Central Ohio in the Marginal Risk (isolated) for severe storms Friday night and Saturday morning. The main threat would be damaging winds, but heavy rain and localized flooding also possible. Temps early Saturday morning will be in the lower 60s when we are dealing with the rain. However, a cold front will swing through later in the morning Saturday and we will have quickly falling temps. Winds will be fairly light today and Friday, SE 5-10 mph, but Saturday we will have winds out of the west 15-25 mph and gusts 35+ mph possible. Our temps by the afternoon/evening Saturday will be in the 40s then 30s as drier air moves in. Sunday will be partly cloudy and dry with seasonal temps, mid 40s. More sun Monday with temps warming up to around 50. Partly cloudy and mid 50s on Tuesday then 60 looking likely for Wednesday with just a slight chance for rain. More rain by the end of the week with a cold front returning. Have a good one!
