Four inches of snow and freezing rain combined overnight to create a stark, barren environment on South Bass Island. A wind advisory is in place this evening . . . and we thought the saying was, “Beware the ides of March!”
Winter hibernation is a misnomer on South Bass Island. Put-in-Bay business appears to slumber, with only the Post Office, Pit Stop, General Store, and Hardware Store keeping regular hours. However, subtle changes appear hither and yon to reveal change and anticipation. The images below capture a few of the awakening moments:
