South Bass Islanders might be tempted to name the most recent winter storm, “Patty’s Last Hurrah,” in honor of Tipper’s Restaurant manager, Patty Bauer. Ms. Bauer prayed all winter for snow and snow and more snow–and we got it! Total snowfall this winter, at the offices of Put-in-Bay Daily™, reached 64″ (the height of a person 5’4″ tall) Wednesday afternoon.
As the Ides of March are upon us, one can only wonder what Mother Nature has in store for the rest of 2014. For the short-term, the Cleveland office of the National Weather Service forecasts cold, blustery winds, snow showers, and partial sunshine. Flowers and greenery? Maybe later . . .
