Out Like A Lamb? Baseball, Snow, and Opening Day...
That is the frustrating thing about early Spring in Ohio and the Midwest in general...you want winter to end, but when it does, you sometimes get stuck with 2 months(April and May) of "in between" type weather conditions. Wind, Snow, Cold, Tornadoes, Heavy Rains, etc.
Major League Baseball opens today, they are calling for 47 and cloudy in Cincinnati.
Here is an ode to Opening Day____
Never liked Fogerty's politics, but always loved his CCR and other music....some great old baseball video on that youtube version.
So, that wraps it up for this morning....The Reds get underway at 2pm or so, I'll watch a bit of that, then climb into the car and head the 45 miles north with cold weather gear in tow, and get ready for my own game.
Photos-Sometimes in March, the Lamb never makes it out....I have umpired many times in snowy conditions, trust me, it's never fun....and yes Virginia, the snow season is not done just yet...it actually looks like the East Coast could get a dozy of a storm this weekend...the track it takes may decide whether it's a snow or heavy rain event.
