Everyone knows this. But I don’t think people are really aware of just how cold it gets.
Yesterday was -25 degrees Farenheit outside. It sucked. My car barely started, and it’s heating system is shit. My hands were colder than the heart of a Packers’ fan. A school bus stalled at the entrance of the middle school.
Today, however, is 50 degrees warmer that it was yesterday. Sounds like it should be balmy outside, right?
I live in Ohio. There is not much about Ohio that is truly unique, but there are a few things.
Ohio has the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland and the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton.
Texas Aggies fans (and others) will argue, but many Ohioans will tell you that we have the best marching band, The Ohio State University Marching Band, aka The Best Damn Band in the Land.
Ohio likes to consider itself the “birthplace of Presidents,” as eight U.S. presidents were born in Ohio: McKinley, Benjamin Harrison, Harding, Taft, Garfield, Hayes, and Grant. That’s more than any other state.
We also have some people who were significant in the history of aerospace, most notably the Wright Brothers. While their first successful powered flight occurred at Kitty Hawk NC, the research and development was done in Dayton, Ohio. Ohio is the birthplace of 25 astronauts, including three of the most significant: John Glenn, Neil Armstrong, and Jim Lovell. Glenn and Armstrong remained associated with Ohio throughout their lives.
