The Candy Store

Teresa and I ventured outside after the snow storm subsided on Sunday. I always love freshly fallen snow in the morning.
Sometime before the afternoon we made a trip to the candy store - AKA, Iron Pony in Westerville.

The trip there was uneventful. The roads, while not cleared of all snow, were easily passable and scenery was gorgeous!

That's a lot of snow. I'm glad that the wind wasn't as fierce as they predicted.

This stretch of highway will soon be replaced by a new 4 lane super speed way mostly north of the road.

"...paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Once at Iron Pony, we spent the time looking for some of the items on my wish list. The place is huge, around 75,000 sqft, and spending time there is almost like time spent in the tool department at Home Depot or Lowes.

I found some winter gloves and a Tour Master rain suite for a good price. Teresa was disappointed that nothing was tailored for someone of her short stature. Whatever we find for her on the rack will need to be altered unless there is a company out there that caters to petite women.

The great weather forecast for this week changed. Again. As usual. Instead of sun and moderate temps, we're expecting precipitation, probably in the form of snow.

Well, at least since daylight savings time changed it's daylight when I get off work now. That's a plus.

I can't believe you guys ventured out in that weather. In Clark County we had a level 3 snow emergency.

Rick: If I recall correctly, Clark county declared a Level 3 Emergency pretty early on with portions of I-70 closed because of multiple crashes.

The nice thing about March snow storms is they usually are short lived. Had this happened in January, the big melt would still be weeks away.
