Here We Go Again!~~ Mo Snow!!
Of course you never know, but this one appears to be headed straight for Mercer County...the proverbial Snow/Rain Line...rain to the south, ice and snow to the north. We will see how it all shakes out. The one thing I am glad about is the fact that we found a decent, lightweight, easy to use, snow blower for mom. She's in Florida, but the walks and drive still need to be taken care of. It's been a winter, snow wise, like we haven't seen in a couple of decades. Not so much accumulation wise, but in the number of storms, snow events, and how long it has stayed around. It's been on the ground since early December, except for the few warm days near New Year's Day, and the pre-spring warm up we had last week So with the two snow blowers, my old Snow Machine, and the Toro at mom's place...it hasn't been as bad as it could have been.
If the predictions are even close, I suspect my final basketball game of the season tomorrow will be postponed....many will. I am scheduled to be at Allen East as they host Paulding. Meanwhile Celina, which has clinched a share of the WBL title, is slated to host Ottawa-Glandorf, with O-G, one game back, hoping to knock off the Bulldogs and share the title. Being the final games of the regular season before tournaments begin next week, I suspect the games to be made up Saturday or Sunday, if they are indeed delayed.
Garry and I headed north to Van Wert for another local rules meeting for baseball last night...with helping to work a umpiring class at Parkway on March 19th, and a couple of meetings the next two weeks at my "other" association at Indian Lake, my requirements will soon be completed. After that, I can pick and choose when and where I want to attend meetings. I usually do a few more than required, because, frankly, I enjoy the meetings and discussing the rules of my favorite game with my fellow umpires...even if we don't always agree how the rules should be enforced or what they really mean.
In other news_____
Nothing going on tonight....so I will prepare to wait out the coming storm and tomorrow fire up the snow machines if needed...
