Oh, I love it ... Hey, do you scrape your windshield off with your driver's license, too?

LOL! Well, no - not really. Actually, I'm the kind of person that frequently breaks ice scrapers, and so anymore what I do is sweep off the snow with a broom. BUT....I don't wear gloves when I do it. HA! Then I turn on the defroster to let the windshield warm up enough so that the wipers will whisk away the skim of ice.

I know it snows at Christmas sometimes. It's just rare, that's all.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the piddly little dustings and 1" bursts of snow that cause this city to freak out. People around here would never survive in Cleveland.

LOL that is the truth too. I remember driving down to Columbus, and there was just a trace on the ground, they were doing 35 on the 270 loop.

I agree, lol great saying. Its like the people I see at Crocker Park in Westlake, it is a lifestyle center so you can walk outdoors to different shops. Well it is always nice to see people wearing shorts when it is 35 out and snow on the ground.

First I would like to say, thank you for your service. It is truly appreciated.

And you will love the fall colors of Cincinnati, the hills around the city, and the awesome skyline views from Mount Adams. Like other posters said, check out Hocking Hills, but you do not have to go there to see the awesome colors of fall.

Welcome to Cincinnati!

Well, I truly have to correct my initial post in this thread. I was thinking the colors this year would be great, but they've been nothing but an utter disappointment. What a dud year. Nothing out there worth looking at.

Iraqvet - welcome back to the states and welcome to Cincinnati.

The colors in town are always beautiful, just some years are more vibrant than others. As for the winter, I was born and raised here and I love the winter. When I was a kid it seemed as though the winters were colder and we had a lot more snow. Nowadays, it seems we do not get as much of the powder as we used to but to me there is nothing more beautiful than waking up on a Sunday looking outside at the sun shinning on a foot of fresly fallen snow. It just makes me feel good all over!

I'd love to see some pictures that people have of the foliage in the SW Ohio area right now. I was wanting to get out and see it, and since it's clearly not happening in my area, perhaps a different area might offer more to look at. Any suggestions for drives? All I see is dull yellow/green with muted tones of light orange here and there. Most of it is dry, brown and falling off trees already.....nothing spectacular to make me go "oooohh/ahhhh".

Out and about today. Still didn't see any color, except a brownish green. I wonder if maybe the colors are going to come out closer to November....? We haven't had much rain at all, so I can't help but think we just won't see anything spectacular this year.
