Lee put on my boots and hat and told me it was cold outside!
Lee was right!! Cincinnati saw wind chills in the range of -30 to -40 degrees last week.
The Ohio Emergency Management Agency warned people to stay inside last Monday if possible.
Stay inside man a dog has to do his business.
Every time I went out Lee had to come out and get me because I kept sliding down the driveway!
The steam off of the Ohio River could be seen on my hill. Because of the cold the steam created snow. The first time we have ever seen snow come from the river not the sky.
Ruby the Airedale you would have loved this because bubbles actually froze in the air and you could catch them and crunch them.
Early morning the world looked all black and gray.
We had ice then we had snow, 8 inches, and we had ice, then we had snow.
Will the weather ever make up it's mind?
But the sun came out and everything still stayed frozen.
See how everything looked in my backyard, that's ice.
The cold snap was due to a "polar vortex" that descended into much of the U.S. last Monday, bringing dangerous cold that broke decades-old records.
Good Bye Polar Vortex and don't you come back no more no more no more no more.
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine
Sweet William The Scot
