2/16/14 Lorain, Ohio – Last night was another cold one in Northern Ohio.  A clear sky over night allowed temperatures to fall to a low of 14 degree (F) at 3:21 AM; as recorded by the Lorain Water Plant along the lake shore.  The clear sky allowed a full view of a rising Full Moon.

2/5/14 Lorain, Ohio – The winter storm arrived over night and dropped between 4 to 6 inches on Lorain county, depending where you live.  Here on my street in South Lorain we received about 6 inches.  That didn’t stop people from enjoying The Lorain County Metro Parks.  Here a unidentified  winter traveler enjoys cross-country skiing through Day’s Dam.

All though I really don’t want to go out, our bird seed supply has been consumed.  Don’t forget to feed the birds today if you can.
