Snowy Night in Ohio City

Snowy road and intersection in Ohio City

While I was driving home the other evening, the song "Hallelujah" by Jeff Buckley. It was snowing lightly and just such a wonderful scene.

It is one of the times that I was really able to enjoy the snowfall in the city and how wonderful it makes everything look.

This photo reminds me a bit of the photo of Tremont in the winter that I took in 2009.

It makes me really appreciate the great part of living in a city during this time of year.

How Much Snowfall in Cleveland

Ruler in the Snow

If you have been hibernating, you might not have heard about the huge snow storm that hit every state except Florida.

I found a ruler in my house and measure the snow. This was not the deepest point in the yard, but I get snow drifts so I wanted to be fair.

Personally, 9.5 inches or so in two days is pretty impressive.

I love winter in Cleveland. Did I mention we are expecting 3 more this weekend?

LeBron - A Message from Boston "NOPE"

LeBron James T-Shirt saying NOPE

As a resident of Cleveland, I have seen more than my fair share of LeBron haters, but I was surprised to see the trend in Boston.

OK - LeBron is still a rival even though he is at the Heat. However, I thought these t-shirts were hysterical.

I had seen these t-shirt being sold outside the arena, and was surprised how many people inside were wearing them.

Even better is the way the guy wearing the shirt is pointing at it. Love it!

The Christmas Tree at Faneuil Hall Marketplace

The Christmas Tree at Faneuil Hall Marketplace

This year, I spent New Year's Eve in Boston. Althought I was disappointed the Celtics lost the game I flew to see them place, the balmy weather made getting around the city great.

On the morning I flew out, we make a short trip to Faneuil Hall. The Christmas tree was still up - much like my own one is - and I was able to snap a photo before it started to rain.

Ironically, I had just seen a tidbit that the tree is donated by the people of Nova Scotia as a gift for supporting Halifax through some tragic events.

Overall, it was a great trip to Boston, and a great place to spend the holiday.
